  • Part 1: Windows 7 Administrative Tools
  • Part 2: Other advanced diagnostics tools
  • Part 3: When things go terribly wrong
  • Bonus: Customizing the Windows 7 Start menu

As with our other e-books, The Windows 7 Guide, Volume 3 pulls together the best tips and techniques from the Windows Secrets archives and puts them in a concise and focused format.
