Reliability monitor

Windows 7 Reliability Monitor offers a solution. It demonstrates how well is your system by measuring the hardware and software performance of your computer. The tool calculates the stability index of your system and specifies results in the range from 1-10 and thus from the results, you can get an overview of the overall performance of your system.

This feature was present in Windows Vista by the name of Reliability and Performance monitor but it has been renamed and further enhanced in Windows 7.

You can access this feature by following these steps:

STEP 1. Go to Windows 7 Action Center by clicking the Action Center icon in the system tray and and then choose Open Action Center.

STEP 2. Expand the Maintenance category, and click the View reliability history option.

STEP 3. Windows 7 will generate the reports in a graphical format and will display the stability of your system in the form of a graph. From here, you will be able to get an idea about how well your system is performing.

Any failure will be marked down in the graph, which can provide the complete information. Hence, an easy way to know any abnormality in the system.

When you plug a ReadyBoost-compatible storage device into your system, the AutoPlay dialog box offers you the option to speed up your computer using ReadyBoost. If you select this option, you can choose how much memory on the device to use for this purpose.

When you set up a device to work with ReadyBoost, Windows shows you the space recommended for an optimal performance. For ReadyBoost to effectively speed up your computer, the flash drive or memory card should have at least 1GB of available space. If enough space is not available for ReadyBoost, you’ll see a message asking you to free some space on the device if you want to use it to speed up your system. You can enable or disable ReadyBoost for a specific flash drive or other removable storage device.

Follow the given guidelines to enable this feature in Windows 7 :

STEP1: Connect a flash drive or flash memory card into your computer.

STEP2: Click Speed up my system, in the Autoplay dialog box, under General options.

STEP3: In the Properties dialog box, click the ReadyBoost tab, and then do one of the following:

To turn ReadyBoost off, click Do not use this device.

To use the maximum available space on the flash drive or memory card for ReadyBoost, click Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost. Windows will leave any files already stored on the device, but it will use the rest to boost your system speed.

To use less than the maximum available space on the device for ReadyBoost, click Use this device, and then move the slider to choose the amount of available space on the device you want to use.

Windows 7 Goes for a Faster Upgrade

After being criticized for what many users is described as a less-than-smooth upgrade to Windows Vista, the Microsoft team is working hard to ensure a smooth transition for your operating system Windows 7.

Windows ChartUpgrade performance matrix.

Enlarge this image

As part of the effort, Chris Hernandez, Microsoft recently published in the time that 7 must have to update multiple Windows users. Mr. Hernandez writes that "one of the key targets for Windows 7, in general, must be better than Vista" and that according to his evidence, "even in the most extreme case, upgrading to Windows 7 is significantly faster that the upgrade to Vista. "

Exactly how much faster? Mr. Hernandez goes on to say that the time needed to upgrade to Windows 7 "is faster or more within a 5% threshold when updating Vista Service Pack 1." In practical terms, this means that "clean, high hardware end "users must wait for the update times of 30 to 35 minutes, while" super users "- defined as those with mid-range high-end software - it may be necessary to set aside a maximum of 1,220 minutes for the windows 7 update.

Of course, the experience of updating each individual can - and probably - varies, but if you're interested in getting a reliable estimate, check out the chart above to track your time.

How To Get Windows 7 Help

There are just under 10 days to go until million users by end of a hot pack through the post that contains the Windows 7 pre-order, or will be deployed to your local electronics store to pick up a copy of Windows 7 on launch day.

Although Windows 7, in my opinion one of Microsoft's best of all programs, with many users running Windows 7 and with many different PC configurations, will not be many users out there who need help from Windows 7. If you are one of the users where to go? If not registered, then you should try the Windows 7 Forum.

While tallying downloads is ability for Mozilla's Firefox, the question of market allotment still remains. The open-source product has been aggressive against Microsoft's Internet Explorer aback its birth and continues to play David to Internet Explorer's Goliath. According to market share numbers from Stat Counter, Mozilla is communicable up with Internet Explorer but still faces a continued alley before it surpasses Microsoft's browser.

Mozilla Plans Firefox 3.7 Interface Changes

It looks like the Mozilla Foundation wants to accomplish some cogent changes to the Firefox user interface in the 3.7 version. The Mozilla website has some antecedent mockups to alpha the altercation off a part of Firefox developers. Right now, they are assuming alone Windows changes, for both XP and Vista/Win7.

Simplification seems to be the adjustment of the day. There is fewer buttons on the left of the address bar, and buttons accept an abstracted and distinct look to them. The accomplished File/Edit/View/etc. bar is gone, replaced by a View drop-down box to the appropriate of the seek bar, with a button to accomplish the bookmarks bar appear. Far added of the window is "glass", which makes it accommodate bigger with Vista/Win7's OS elements like charlatan windows and such.

The changes to the XP adaptation are similar, admitting of advance after the bottle stuff. The capital aberration appears to be the Tools and Bookmark Bar buttons to the appropriate of the seek bar, which accept an altered architecture but apparently agnate functionality to that in the Vista/Win7 design.

The changes are looking acceptable to us. Removing the File/Edit/etc. bar, or at least hiding it away, makes sense. It increases the bulk of your Firefox window that is acclimated by the page itself, rather than the interface, which is one of the things I adulation about Chrome. It seems like use of the Home button has collapsed out of favor, so it makes faculty to get rid of that, too. Of course, this is a mockup of proposed changes to an adaptation 3.7, if 3.6 are not even out yet. So it may attend absolutely altered by the time this adaptation ships. What do you anticipate of the changes? Leave us your comments.

Mozilla wants to XSS vulnerabilities-block

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks have been a scourge on the Web, including well-known and popular websites. Mozilla has the last year on a technology for these attacks to stop: Content Security Policy Cross-site scripting attacks are possible because all browsers JavaScript code and other content on a webpage in the same security context execution. The Content Security Policy (CSP) Mozilla provides a mechanism for sites to tell the browser what content is legitimate. Any script that is not accepted by the website, is blocked by the browser. Mozilla's proposal requires that all JavaScript on a web page to external files to be moved, CSP can not be distinguished from legitimate scripts injected or modified JavaScript code in the page. Inline scripts, Javascript urls and HTML attributes that will handle events CSP therefore ignored. Only JavaScript code via a tag referring to a url on a host that has been approved by the site will be carried out. A protected website can also display a warning if a CSP XSS attack is blocked. A detailed description of the possibilities can be found in the CSP specification. While websites should therefore be adapted to support CSP, it may happen in stages. The Mozilla Security Team has many sites and proved to be no site met that could not be adjusted. There will be documentation of best practices for a site to migrate to CSP. A reassurance that the policy is also fully backwards compatible: it has no effect on websites or web browsers that do not support the specification.
