This is the Windows XP entry in the new Spring Into series. It is written in the unique, structured style of the Spring Into books. Each chapter begins with introductory text, followed by single-page or facing-page tutorials. Every tutorial is semi-autonomous, and focuses on an example or set of examples. The discussions are to the point and emphasize results without extraneous information. It is fully up to date, written on the final release of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2.) The main features of SP2 deal with networking, and the book's coverage reflects that, thoroughly explaining key topics including how to create a wireless Windows XP network, how to secure the wireless network from intruders and freeloaders, how to integrate a Mac into a Windows network, and how to secure a home network from worms and viruses using Windows Internet Connection Firewall. While SP2 has many advanced security features, it has proven to be problematic to install and run. This gives us an audience of millions of Windows XP users who need expert advice on how to safely upgrade and use Windows XP SP2. Windows XP is one of the largest computer book markets. Yet until now computer professionals and power users who have wanted to learn about Windows XP have had to make do with books designed for less technically savvy people. In 350 pages, Spring Into Windows XP is designed to give busy professionals and power users the skills they need to be productive in Windows
