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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
