Finishing Your Windows Vista Installation

Technically, Windows Vista setup is complete when you reach the desktop and see the Welcome Center for the first time. In the real world, there’s still a short checklist of system settings you’ll want (or need) to go through soon. Most of the items on the following list are one-time tasks that you’ll set and forget. It doesn’t include performance tweaks or maintenance tasks that you perform occasionally, nor does it include personalization settings you might want to change over time. What all of these settings have in common is that they are per-machine settings, not per-user settings.
