I am Microsoftie 4 ever (18+ years) working in Windows Services and Content team in the UK, my blog is mainly focused on the Windows family of products and trying to provide help pointers and resources for customers on our products.
My old friend Liam Kelly (UK DPE Partner Lead) has pointed towards the latest videos about using IE8, and there are 18 of them up on YouTube
the 2 most recent added within the last 24 hours are
and Live Search
Well worth looking at if you are interested in learning more about the features in IE8 Beta.
You can download Internet Explorer 8 at www.microsoft.com/ie8
I am always on the hunt for demos, tutorials and articles on how to achieve tasks in Windows Vista, so I can understand if there is any content on the Windows Help and How-to site that is missing or could be improved, and also from a personal perspective so I can learn more about our products.
Today I came across the following tutorial from ITPro.co.uk and thought it worthy of a quick mention here, so check it and let me know what you think.

But at this point I would also like to point out just a few of the backup related topics we have on the help and how-to site as well:
If like me you occasionally go into the Windows Task Manager, (usually as a result of some poor performance or to kill off some unresponsive program) and when you get there you get a screen that you really don’t know what to make of. So which process is doing what? and should I really kill it?
So recently I downloaded a little tool/utility from Uniblue - ProcessQuicklink from ProcessLibrary.com and I have found it incredibly useful as tool to help me find out what all those processes are, and what they do. To quote there web site
‘As many as 20 to 30 processes may be running invisibly, silently in the background on your PC. Some hog system resources, drastically slowing down your computer. Others are a threat to security and privacy. A few may be harmless.
The Windows Task Manager displays most of these processes but you have no information to learn and understand what is what.
Get the latest definitions and exhaustive advice on all the processes running on directly in the Windows Task Manager…’
Just thought I would share that, I am nothing more than a happy customer/user and have no connection whatsoever with Uniblue Systems.
