Boot Manager in Windows Vista

I decided to change my dual boot setting from auto countdown to wait until user select, hence I uncheck the boot setting. Oops Mistake Now I can't perform dual boot, this is because it always boot the default OS. In my case it's Windows XP, now I have a problem... I can't change the boot setting in XP because Vista use a new book manager The Boot.ini in no more there... Luckily found this tools which allow me edit Vista Boot settings in XP.

Free Firewall

If you like me hate the Windows Firewall then get this free one from Comodo. This is a very powerful firewall and sometime I think it's too details. Alternatively you may want to use Kerio Personal Firewall from Sun-Belt Software. Kerio provide less question ask but enough for you to decide what traffic you allow and deny.

Vista User Experience 03-Feb-07

First note, still not download of DreamScene, I think this small apps giving Microsoft problem that's why they can't release it. I saw someone demonstrating it and it crash the system which cause the PC need to perform a reboot.

Now I am having problem on how to enable a Defrag program I install to start every time I reboot my PC. Currently this program was blocked by Windows Defender (see attach pix). Looks like I need to Google for solution or should I try live.com :-)
