PROCEDURE: PART #1 - LAB SETUP (5min) 1. Your Instructor will Ghostcast the Windows XP image to your workstation. This image will setup the computer so that the following lab procedures will work properly. 2. Reboot the computer into Windows XP Pro and continue with the next part. PART #2 MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL – USER SECURITY/RIGHTS 1. The major difference between the Windows 9X-ME product line and the Windows 200X-XP product line is system security and reliability. 2. The reliability comes partly from the security and partly from enhanced operating system technology built into Windows XP. 3. The current image does not use passwords for the user account (e211); this user is vulnerable to viruses, data theft or other malicious acts. 4. As a security conscious user add a password by going to the Control Panel +User Accounts + Create a Password. Read the “Learn About” + “Creating a secure password” + “Creating a good password” + “Remembering a password” to determine how to create an appropriate password. Record your final password in the Lab Report for evaluation. 5.
