Windows 7 in action: A smarter way to manage windows

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Over the past few months, I’ve snapped hundreds of screenshots of the Windows 7 interface, for use in galleries here at ZDNet (like this one and this one) and in Windows 7 Inside Out. But static screenshots don’t do justice to some of the nuances of actually using a feature. So when ZDNet’s crack video production team offered to help me to produce some screencasts, I jumped at the chance.

You’ve no doubt heard about Aero Snap and Aero Shake. Here’s a chance to see these features in action. (Hint: Click the Full Screen button, in the lower right corner, just to the right of the Menu button, to see the most detail.)

I actually remember the first time I saw this feature demonstrated for me. I was immediately impressed with the idea that simple mouse gestures could make window management so much easier. That’s especially important these days, when 20- and 24-inch monitors are commonplace.

In fact, after using Windows 7 for nearly a full year, I have to confess that I’m spoiled by this feature more than any other. When I use a computer running another operating system—Windows Vista, XP, or even OS X—I really miss the ability to maximize and minimize a window with a flick of the mouse or to snap a window into position on the side of the screen.

This is the first of four Windows 7 demos that I’ve done in this series. Look for the next one next week at this time.

Microsoft Windows Users and iYogi Predict a Surge in Tech Support for Windows 7 Upgrades

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Survey Shows That Nearly Half of Consumers Think Upgrading to a New Operating System Will Require Technical Assistance

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2009 -- iYogi, the on-demand tech services company with a unique global delivery model, announced today the results of a consumer poll regarding support concerns and predictions for the upcoming launch of the new Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Based on responses from more than 1,000 Windows XP and Windows Vista users, 52 percent think that moving to a new operating system and moving their data is a hassle, suggesting some real frustrations on the near horizon. Nearly half (47 percent) think upgrading to Microsoft Windows 7 may require a call to technical support - potentially causing a huge backlog of support needs, as up to 40 million copies of Windows 7 are expected to be sold in 2009, according to IDC.

"We predict that more than 40 percent of XP users will generate support calls and inquiries globally this year and even more in 2010 as mass adoption kicks in and people face the prospect of dealing with an entirely new interface," said Vishal Dhar, President Marketing & Co-founder of iYogi. "We estimate twice as many support calls for current Windows XP users than Windows Vista users, since Microsoft Windows XP users will require a 'clean' install including migrating applications, settings and drivers--a potentially arduous, time-intensive task."

Additional survey findings reveal:

  • 58 percent of users think they will or may upgrade to Windows 7, an encouraging number considering some of the backlash surrounding Vista

  • Only 39 percent of users are aware that Windows 7 is launching soon, suggesting an increased flurry of help questions in the coming months as more people become aware of the upgrade options

How to Optimize Your Windows Vista

Monday, September 14, 2009
Run a Virus Check

The moment you notice your PC is running slowly, the first thing to do is to check it for viruses and spy-wares. Viruses have a way of slowing down a computer and makes it run slower than it used to.

Defragmentation can be defined as a process that helps reduce the amount of fragmentation in a file system. Fragmentation makes your hard disk do more work than necessary and this can slow down your computer. A Disk Defragmenter is what you need.

A Disk Defragmenter reorganizes fragmented data and place them close together, so that your hard disk can have more space and perform better. Disk Defragmenter can be found on your windows vista help by going to the ”Start icon” of your computer, click on ”All Programs”, open ”Accessories” , then ”System Tools” and finally click on ”Disk Defragmenter”.

Boost your Computer Memory

Use Windows Ready Boost to boost your computer memory. The Windows Ready Boost enables you to use the storage space on detachable devices, such as flash drives, to increase the speed of your computer. This is a preferable way of increasing your PC memory, than opening the computer hardware.

Uninstall software and programs you never use

Do you know that most of the limited trial editions versions of programs you find in your computer when you bought it can slow your computer down? These trials software use up valuable disk space and memory, so if you do not intend to upgrade to a full version of the program or software, it is advisable to uninstall it from your computer to save you more disk space, memory and even processing power.

Clean up your hard disk

If you want to help your computer run faster, you can also remove unimportant files on your hard disk and empty the Recycling Bin by using the Disk Cleanup. Here is a step-by-step instructions on how to do this.

1. First begin by clicking the ”Start icon”, click on ”All Programs”, then ”Accessories”, open ”System Tools”, and then click on ”Disk Cleanup”.

2. You have the option to choose if you want to clean up your personal files only or all the files in the computer.

3. In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box If the Drive Selection box comes up, choose the hard disk drive that you want to clean up, and then click on ”OK”.

4. Select the Disk Cleanup tab, and click on boxes of the files you want to remove, then click on ”OK”.

5. Finally click on ”Delete files” to confirm total removal of the unwanted files.

Reduce Start-up programs

When you put on your computer, you notice that some programs loads automatically at start-up, these programs take up disk space and waste memory and also slows down the loading power of your PC. Most of these programs are designed by Software manufacturers to load automatically when Windows starts, some of them even run in the background where you can’t see them, and are only designated by their icons on the notification area on the task-bar of your computer screen. So to help your windows vista PC work faster and be more efficient, delete the ones you don’t use often.

Four Reasons to Love Windows Vista

Thursday, September 3, 2009
New graphics system
Windows Vista includes a new graphics system for computer support of Aero. Microsoft has done with vector graphics icons and thumbnails in Windows Explorer. Here you see the real images of the photos in a folder in Windows Vista. Image enhancements include the ability to preview your open tasks along the taskbar DVD playback more stable, and the ability to browse a lot of open tasks using the Tab key plus the Windows key.

Built-in search
Included in all editions of Windows Vista operating system support is the integrated search function and labeling. This allows you to create virtual folders content search. Say you're doing a report on mountains; any file that is keyword-enabled to include "mountains" will be grouped into a virtual folder without physically dragging that file to a new location. The downside is that older files (such as upgrading your system from Windows XP or imported data from an earlier version of Windows) will have to be retroactively met tagged be searchable.

New file system
Although the ambitious new WinFS file system was scrapped from the beginning, Microsoft signs on his future within the functionality of Windows Vista. Gone are the backslashes and directory tree structure. Now you can save your favorite searches in virtual format to create ad hoc collections without dragging and dropping files. You can also make public files to share with others.

Perhaps the first feature you'll notice is the new sidebar on the desktop and the three Gadgets default, the Microsoft version of Apple's Widgets. The default gadgets display the current time, photos of the library, and any Internet Explorer 7, RSS subscription, with the option to add more gadgets to meet your needs.

Does Windows 7 give worse battery life on netbooks?

Monday, August 31, 2009
Reports are coming in about netbooks suffering from diminished battery life when running Windows 7. The story broke with an article in the US Laptop magazine than claimed Windows 7 lopped 3 hours of a Toshiba NB2O5 netbook, compared to when it was running Windows XP. With Windows XP, the NB2O5 lasted for nine hours 24 minutes away from the mains, while with Windows 7, it ran for six hours 15 minutes.

Similar results have been reported by other sources, too — more details after the cut.
Netbook user forums have already seen complaints about the battery life of netbooks running the public beta and release candidate of Windows 7, as these sample threads from EeeUser, the Acer Aspire User Forum and show. Tom’s Hardware also experienced reduced netbook battery life in its Windows 7 tests.

Windows 7 runs surprisingly well on the Intel Atom processor used in most netbooks, so these battery life results are a little disappointing for anyone looking to install Microsoft’s latest operating system once it goes on sale on 22 October.

It’s important to note, however, that these battery life issues could simply be the result of insufficiently optimised drivers, although the EeeUser thread does make specific mention of the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine power source-optimiser utility being installed and running with Windows 7.

We suspect netbook battery life will be improved by the time OEMs start shipping models with Windows 7 pre-installed. If you rely upon your netbook’s battery, it’s probably worth postponing an upgrade to Windows 7 until Windows 7-specific drivers and utilities are available for your model. Let us know in the comments if you’ve already installed Windows 7 on your netbook and aren’t getting quite the same battery life as Windows XP.

10 Important Computer Failures and Reason

Thursday, August 27, 2009
  • “Fatal error: the system has become unstable or is busy”
  • Blue Screen of Death.
  • Fatal Exception Error. (RAM)
  • Parity error messages. (RAM)
  • RAM lock up and freeze the computer’s display. (BIOS)
  • Fatal OE exceptions and VXD errors. (Video Card)
  • Computer can not start.(Power supply problem) system files missing.
  • Computer loop on BIOS.(Power supply problem) system files missing.
  • Blank screen.(Overheating)
  • Black screen of Death.(Overheating)

Cause of problem:

1. Hardware conflict

The number one reason why Windows crashes is hardware conflict. If there are a lot of devices, or if the hardware are not installed properly, when the user tries to use both devices at the same time, a crash can happen.

Sometimes mismatch driver also can make your device can function properly.


  • Go to ‘Device Manager‘ to check if all your device functional properly and all the driver for the device is install.
  • Make sure your computer drive is up-to-date.

2. Bad Random-Access Memory(RAM)

RAM problems might bring on a fatal error message that indicates a serious hardware problem. Sometimes it may mean a part is damaged and will need replacing. But a fatal error caused by RAM might be caused by a mismatch of chips or mismatch speed of RAM.


  • Enter the BIOS settings and increase the wait state of the RAM.
  • Rearrange the RAM chips on the motherboard, or take some of them out.(Do not to touch the gold connections, as they can be easily damaged.)

3. BIOS settings

A common way to access these settings is to press the F2 or delete button during the first few seconds of a boot-up. Usually BIOS problem is come up, if you change something in the BIOS and the computer becomes more unstable.


  • Write down on a piece of paper all the BIOS settings that appear on the screen. That way, you will know what settings to revert to.
  • Restore BIOS setting to default.

4. Hard disk drives

After a few weeks, the information on a hard disk drive starts to become fragmented. Hard disks will slow down and crash if they are too full.


  • Defragment the hard disk every week or so, to prevent the disk from causing a screen freeze. (Use Windows Disk Defragment or any defragment application such as Diskeeper.)
  • Empty the Recycle Bin every week to free more space.
  • Scanned your hard disk every week for errors or bad sectors.

5. Video card


  • Take a look at the color settings in ‘Display Setting‘. For most desktops, high colour 16-bit depth is adequate.
  • Make sure it does not have a hardware conflict. Check it in ‘Device Manager
  • Look up your video card’s manufacturer on the internet and search for the most recent drivers for it.

6. Viruses

Some viruses erase the boot sector of a hard drive, making it impossible to start. Viruses also can ‘eat’ all your files in your hard drives including system files.


  • Install and update antivirus in your computer.
  • Install also spyware application such as Spyware Doctor.

7. Printers

The action of sending a document to print creates a bigger file, often called a postscript file.

Printers have only a small amount of memory, called a buffer. This can be easily overloaded. Printing a document also uses a considerable amount of CPU power. This will also slow down the computer’s performance.

A good way to clear the buffer is to unplug the printer for ten seconds. Booting up from a powerless state, also called a cold boot, will restore the printer’s default settings and you may be able to carry on and get printer support.

8. Software

A common cause of computer crash is faulty or badly-installed software. Incompatible software also cause of this problem. For example, you install Bitdefender and Kaspersky antivirus in a computer.


  • Use application like Your Uninstaller to uninstall this software.
  • Make sure you have remove all the software before install a new software. To be safe, restart your computer after uninstall or remove a software.
  • Use registry cleaner like Registry Booster to remove obsolete entries.
  • Entering Safe Mode(Press F4 when Windows Start). Restore your computer to previous restore point.

9. Overheating

Central processing units (CPUs) are usually equipped with fans to keep them cool. If the fan fails or fills with dust it may start to overheat and generate a particular kind of error called a kernel error. This is a common problem in chips that have been overclocked to operate at higher speeds than they are supposed to.


  • Install bigger and faster fan on the CPU.
  • Install more fan to make air flow move faster.
  • Clean your fan.
  • For laptop user, dont put your laptop at your bed. Make sure your laptop have good air flow.

10. Power supply problems

Sometime computer crash because data lost in your computer. Computer is not properly shutdown may be the cause of the computer problems.


  • Buying a uninterrupted power supply (UPS). This will give you a clean power supply when there is electricity, and it will give you a few minutes to perform a controlled shutdown in case of a power cut.

Microsoft SBS Wizard Troubleshooting

Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Yesterday i have resolved my 4th SBS Wizard related difficulty this year. The symptoms are the same on both SBS 2003 and SBS 2008 – when attempting to use the Wizards to create a user or computer, the wizard works all the way until the last step and then fails with an error.

The trouble in all 4 cases this year has been because someone treated an SBS server like a Windows Standard Server. And the reality is that while it is based upon standard server, it really is not. There have been major tweaks and adjustments to permit it to work the way it does. Among them is various restrictions on changes to Active Directory. Basically, unless you understand exactly how the SBS Wizards leverage Active Directory, it is best not to do anything through the standard Active Director Users and Computers console. The Wizards require that users, computer and other data are placed in very specific Organization Units, with very specific names. Renaming OUs or moving users into a more “logical” place will prevent the wizards from working properly.

The people who get themselves into too much trouble are often IT consultants who think they know better – but really don’t. The reason is that a newbie administrator will actually read the documentation that comes with SBS and/or pickup a great reference book, which all say the same thing — use the wizards for absolutely everything, don’t make any changes to Active Directory outside of a wizard. The only exception being would be documentation which specifically takes SBS into account. A Microsoft Technet page will specifically call out that it works with SBS; if it just mentions Standard Server, beware! Remember that SBS is made for oranizations of 69 users or less, and in these environments, rarely will you need a complex OU scheme.

In all four cases this year, it has been because someone has renamed or deleted the default SBS OUs which are created automatically. A quick rename of the OUs back to what they were origionally named, will resolve your problems. That’s it, no big changes, registry adjustments, etc. Simply put the OUs back to where they were automatically created and you should be all set.

Windows Vista Service Pack 2 A guided tour

Tuesday, August 18, 2009
This 264MB monster (or 200MB if you install it via Windows Update) not only fixes bugs in the OS, but also adds brand new functionality both to core services and applications such as Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.

We've been using the beta Release Candidate 2 (RC2) for some time, and generally we're impressed. It seems pretty stable and has not yet created any major errors with the PCs we've installed it on. All the screenshots here were taken using build 2257 of RC2, so it's possible that some details may be changed by the time of the final public release version.

Microsoft's focus with SP2 is security, security and security - many of the changes are deep in the inner workings of XP and won't immediately be obvious to users. They could cause some problems for existing applications, so as ever it's wise to do a full system backup before installation.

In this overview we've concentrated on giving you a visual tour of the major new features - the technical changes are covered in great depth on the Microsoft website if you're interested. We plan to do a more in-depth look at the underlying technology in a future issue.

There are a couple of features not illustrated here, such as the addition of plain text email formatting to Outlook Express, but we've tried to cover as many of them as possible within the available space. The behaviour of Internet Explorer has also been changed, for example, to prevent malicious websites hiding the navigation bar or spawning multiple pop-ups. Overall we believe SP2 is a genuinely worthwhile update - many of the features are well overdue, but 'better late than never' is a phrase that's becoming familiar to most Windows users.

Click on thumbnails for a larger image.

Service Pack 2 is at least a 100MB download. Before you download it you'll be prompted to install the new Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), which speeds up future patch downloads by only downloading files that have changed.

After installation, the first thing you'll see is the new Security Centre that gives you easy access to your firewall, automatic updates and Internet settings. The antivirus settings can't be changed from here, though. Security Center can be opened from Control Panel.

If the publisher of an executable program can't be determined, Windows will now warn you before it lets you run it. This feature checks whether the program has a digital signature, something that many valid programs don't have at the moment. It's another welcome security feature in SP2.

Bluetooth users will be very happy to see this screen. Service Pack 2 adds native support for Bluetooth - this screen shows the Options tab found when you double-click the new Bluetooth applet in Control Panel. We found it worked well using an unbranded USB Bluetooth dongle, with drivers being found automatically. The control panel lets you configure discovery settings and connections to other Bluetooth devices. You can also set up Bluetooth COM ports.

Virus News - Macs are not Immune, Conficker Update

Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Symantec researchers believe they have found evidence of a virus that is specific to the Macintosh computers. Some experts are not sure of the actual threat to Mac Users. The interesting thing is that Mac users have always bragged about how safe their Macs are compared to PCs. You have probably even seen the commercials that try to pound PCs into the ground.

The virus (just like many viruses on the PC side of things) is downloaded along with a pirated or illegal copy of legitimate software. The type of virus is called a botnet, which gets on the computer, and can get out onto the internet, and cause a distributed denial of service (DDos) attack.

The way this attack works is a bunch of computers keep going to a website or sites, over and over. With thousands of computers doing this, it blocks anyone from getting to that site.
Many Mac experts are downplaying this and saying the media attention is not necessary. Many are also saying the Mac is still safe, and security software is not needed. Good luck with that!
Conficker - We are not out of the woods yet

Reports are that the Conficker virus is infecting more computers, and could possibly do more on May 1st. I wrote about this in an entry in March. April 1st has come and gone, and most people think it was just a scare. This particular worm is more of a long-term, slow acting virus. There are three parts to this virus, and the one that has my attention is the last one which has to do with your computer and not stuff it will do to others on the Internet.

Here is a quote from Fox News online, " Conficker also carries a third virus that warns users their PCs are infected and offers them a fake anti-virus program, Spyware removal 2009 for $49.95, according to Russian-based security researcher Kaspersky Lab. If they buy it, their credit card information is stolen and the virus downloads even more malicious software."

Interestingly, I have seen very similar malware on many machines this month. I cannot say it was this virus, but it is interesting that the malware I have been cleaning was similar, and most of the customers had valid, up to date virus protection. They could have been "drive by" type viruses, but there is also a chance the malware was hidden in the Conficker virus. Once these machines are cleaned up, it is really hard to tell, because all traces are gone.

Check out the link to see if you have the conficker virus on your system if you have not already.

How do you plan to move up the value chain in the times to come?

The growing use and penetration of the Internet and new Web-based applications has consequently opened the door to threats and vulnerabilities, which affect the system performance and ultimately lead to degrading performance. If the threats are diagnosed early on, the impact on efficiency can be minimised considerably. Currently, a user only realizes that he needs technical support once the damage has occurred and reactive methods of support are used to recover from the loss.

At iYogi, we are developing our capabilities to not only provide support when demanded, but to also monitor, pre-empt and fix threats before they can cause any damage to the computer. This will be possible only by combining technology with processes that are capable of re-defining the way technical support is delivered today.

What is your India strategy?

Technically, we are capable of servicing any geography including India. At this stage, we are looking for the right kind of partners to find access to potential customers and provide them a consolidated, 360-degree solution and services for issues relating to hardware, software, network etc. We aim to launch our India services in the coming six to eight months. Our services will offer clients a one-stop solution for all their business needs.

How to Install Windows 7 Beta on an Acer Aspire One Netbook

Tuesday, July 28, 2009
How do you install an Operating System onto a laptop with no optical drive? The answer is you need a bootable USB drive. It took a lot of searching around the net to work out how to do this, so I thought I’d outline the steps here, mainly for my own benefit, so I know where to look the next time LOL. This guide will show you how to get Windows vista support Acer Aspire One laptop, YMMV with other laptop.

Step 1 – Let’s create a bootable USD Drive!
1. Clearly, the first thing you need is a USB drive and the one I used was an 8GB Seagate model.
2. Plug the drive into your PC.
3. Open a command prompt as administrator.
4. Get the drive number by typing:
list disk
On my machine the USB disk was number 1.
5. Format the drive by typing:
select disk 1
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=NTFS
6. Mount the Windows 7 beta iso using Daemon Tools or similar.
7. Navigate to the boot directory
cd E:\boot
8. Using bootsect, we’ll make the USB drive a bootable NTFS drive, ready for a Windows 7 image (my drive was labeled G):
bootsect /nt60 G:
9. We are finished with the command prompt now, so you can close it.

Step 2 – Copy the installation files from the mounted Windows 7 iso to the USB drive.

Step 3 – Install on the Netbook
1. Plug in the USB drive and turn on the netbook
2. On start up press to select the bootable drive
3. Select the USB drive and press return

How Printer driver problems Comes

Friday, July 24, 2009
The printer driver that you installed when you set up your printer tells your parallel port how to manage the data being sent to the printer. Different makes and models of printers require precise software to effectively manage their particular applications.

One of the most common printing problems is that an incorrect or defective printer driver is being used. This can result in all sorts of strange gibberish on the printed page. If you selected the wrong printer driver for the printer you are trying to use, you may need to purge the print jobs that are hung up in the spooler as well as reset the printer to remove any bad data that remains in its buffer.

Purge the print jobs first. You can do this in Windows 95/98 by clicking on Start, Settings, Printers, and then clicking the icon for the appropriate printer. When the window for the printer opens, click Printer in the upper-left corner and then click Purge Documents.

Now reset your printer to remove the last traces of the “poison” still in the printer’s buffer.

It’s also possible that you have the correct printer driver but that it isn’t configured properly for the amount of RAM installed in your printer. If the driver is set for more RAM than the printer actually has, an overflow can occur. This might go unnoticed for a long time. It may appear only when you have a large print job or pages with lots of graphics.

Friday, July 17, 2009
If you installed Vista operating system of Microsoft yourself and have problem in installing previous Windows Operating System, you surely noliced that Vista hardly asks any questions about your computer—and what you plan to do with it—than did prior Operating System.

Windows Vista makes all kinds of assumptions about your computing habits and the features you may or may not need, and it inevitably installs some overhead that you simply don't need. You can get rid of it. Windows XP had the Add/Remove Windows Features button in the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet, and Vista has something like it.

1. Open Control Panel and click Uninstall a Program to launch Vista's Uninstall or Change a Program Window. In the Tasks pane on the left, click Turn Windows Features On or Off.
2. Check the list of features. Each feature is preceded by a checkbox which, if filled, indicates the feature is installed. If you hover the mouse over a feature, a help tooltip appears to tell you what it is.

3. Uncheck any feature you don't need. Some of the features are headings with a sub-list below them; just click the little + sign to expand.
For my gaming system, I've purged everything except:
• Some of the games
• XPS Viewer (under .NET Framework 3.0)
• Remote Differential Compression (a network optimizer)
• Windows Ultimate Extras
Note that when you uncheck features, you're not removing these features from your system; you're simply turning them off so they don't sit in the background eating up resources. You can turn any of them back on by invoking this window and filling the checkboxes.

Linux being an open source has been built under GPL license & is freely available in the market. MAC being another operating system in the market has been designed & coded by Apple Computers.

Windows 1.0 was released by Microsoft & first came into existence in Nov 1985 as an add-on to MS-DOS in response to the growing interest in Graphical User Interface (GUI). Microsoft Windows came to dominate the world's personal computer market, overtaking Mac OS, which had been introduced previously. After this Microsoft never looked back and kept on releasing the new versions of windows in the market after collecting the user feedback. Slowly & gradually Microsoft became one of the biggest brands in the market with the operating system.

As the new versions of the operating systems were released new features were added to each version. The problems or the limitations found using online Microsoft windows vista tech support sites or other sources which were found in the earlier versions were fixed in the newer versions and an attempt was always made to keep themselves a step ahead of the technology or the need of the user. Slowly and gradually Microsoft identified a way to collect the information from every user by the way of error reporting & submitting the details of the error directly to Microsoft Support. This way of collecting the information from the user and identifying the problem was appreciated by the other technical support or service providers and followed by them.

Today being a big organization Microsoft has outsourced its computer tech support services to various vendors in the world located at various locations. These vendors serve Microsoft customer’s at some cost or free of charge depending on the kind of technical support required. Microsoft has also launched this on online windows tech support services and help related to the common issues that a user faces to minimize the cost and save the time of the user which can be viewed at

As the technology was worked upon Internet came into existence which was a revolution in the market as the entire world was at a mouse click. In the early 90s—the dawn of history as far as the World Wide Web is concerned—relatively few users were communicating across this global network. They used an assortment of shareware and other software for Microsoft Windows operating system.

In 1995, Microsoft hosted an Internet Strategy Day and announced its commitment to adding Internet capabilities to all its products. In fulfillment of that announcement, Microsoft Internet Explorer arrived as both a graphical Web browser and the name for a set of technologies.

In July 1995, Microsoft released the Windows 95 operating system, which included built-in support for dial-up networking and TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol), key technologies for connecting to the Internet. In response to the growing public interest in the Internet, Microsoft created an add-on to the operating system called Internet Explorer 1.0. When Windows 95 with Internet Explorer debuted, the Internet became much more accessible for many more people.

Internet Explorer technology originally shipped as the Internet Jumpstart Kit in Microsoft Plus! For Windows 95. Internet Explorer replaced the need for cumbersome, manual installation steps required by many of the existing shareware browsers.

After traveling a long way a new operating system would hit the market with the name Windows 7 which is expected to be more user friendly & secure than the earlier operating systems released in the market. The default browser expected to be is Internet Explorer 8.0 with this new operating system which would be released this year by Microsoft.
