Live icons show a preview of documents, and new innovative ways to navigate the windows on the desktop allow users to find what they are looking for fast.
To mitigate threats from malicious software such as viruses, spyware, and root kits, Windows Vista® includes Internet Explorer 7 Protected Mode - unique to Windows Vista, helping prevent the silent install of malicious code. Data is further protected through Windows Vista BitLockerTM drive encryption, which can protect against data theft from lost or stolen PCs. In addition to protecting your data, Windows Vista also offers options for recovering your data. Shadow Copy technology can automatically store files as users work on them, so earlier versions can easily be retrieved if they are changed or if key content is deleted.
To help address the security risks of mobile computing, Windows Vista includes the latest wireless security protocols so users can connect to Wi-Fi networks securely. Network Access Protection, when used with the Windows Server Longhorn infrastructure, can ensure that computers are in a secure state before they are allowed to reconnect to the network, helping to prevent them from spreading a virus inside your network perimeter.
Windows Vista® provides cost-effective networking solutions. It can automatically optimize file transfers by detecting how much network bandwidth is available and tuning itself to receive more or less data at any given time, which can provide an excellent return on Wide Area Network investments when transferring data between sites.
Windows Vista is optimized for mobile hardware. The new Windows Mobility Center can put all of the most commonly used mobile controls in one place, while enhanced power management can help make your battery last longer. Windows Vista can also make it easy to stay in sync - so your data and devices can switch seamlessly between online and offline states.
