Windows Vista

Windows Vista is a new and an improved operating system which was introduced to the general public by Microsoft on January 30, 2007. It offers several new and modified features from the graphical user interface called the Windows Aero to the new Windows DVD maker. Windows Aero is a redesigned user interface and is much appealing and vibrant than previous Windows versions. It contains glass-like transparencies, live icons and thumbnails and animations.

Other features of the Windows Vista include improved search and navigation tools, a data back up and restore centre, speech recognition applications and new safety and security components such as the Windows firewall, Windows Defender and even the Windows parental control. In addition, Vista includes the revamped Windows Media Player 11 to play songs and video as well as a Windows Photo gallery to manage and organize your photos.

While Windows Vista is getting growing attention from consumers and businesses, it is the target of negative criticisms as well. These criticisms include the extra long development time, more restrictive licensing terms etc. Users have also complained that there are similarities between the Vista's Aero interface and Apple's Aqua interface for the Mac OS X operating system. Questions have also been raised about the cost of the operating system as well as user account control.

Identity theft comes in many forms.

A person\92s identity can be 'borrowed' for the purpose of creating fictional credit cards or a person\92s entire identity can be usurped to the point where they can have difficulty proving that they really are who they claim to be.

Up to 18% of identity theft victims take as long as four years to realize that their identity has been stolen.

There are many ways to protect your personal identity and many steps you can take to prevent your identity from being stolen:

*Never give out unnecessary personal information
*Never provide bank details or social security numbers over the Internet
*Always remain aware of who is standing behind you when you type in your personal credit codes at ATM machines and at supermarket checkout swipe machines.
