How dangerous could a batch file be?
Lets do the same thing in an other way. Copy

For the Windows faithful, it’s been a tough eight years. With the launch of Windows XP in 2001, we thought we were poised on a brink of a new world of NT-based goodness—but two years and uncountable exploits later, the future of Windows was grim. Facing a never-ending torrent of new ‘sploits, worms, and trojans, Microsoft fired back with the single greatest operating system update of all time—Service Pack 2. In the single fell swoop of SP2, Windows XP went from Swiss cheese to secure, and once again we were poised to enter the promised land with… (wait for it)… Vista.
Of course, we all know how Vista turned out. Haunted by poor performance in everything from games to disk access to networking, Vista is widely considered to be Microsoft’s biggest failure. Nonetheless, Vista laid the groundwork for a host of new technologies, all absolutely vital to pushing Windows into the 21st century. Vista’s new, modern driver architecture was designed to move core functionality from the kernel (where any instability can bring down the whole system) to user space—an absolutely necessary development. Likewise, Vista’s proper enforcement of permissions for both users and applications enhanced security, even though UAC remains very annoying. And once vendors fixed their driver flaws and Microsoft squashed some underlying bugs, Vista morphed into an entirely workable operating system, even if we still wouldn’t describe it as “good.”
So, as 2009 draws to a close, we find ourselves testing another new Microsoft OS: Windows 7. Building on the now-mature technologies introduced with Vista, but with a renewed focus on performance and ease-of-use, Windows 7 seems poised to succeed where Vista couldn’t. We’ve finally received a final build of Win7, and have run it through the wringer in both the Lab and in the real-world. Here’s what we found.
It’s time again for another of our head to head face offs.
We recently pitched Windows 7 against Mac OS X and an almighty battle it was, but this time we’re lining up Windows 7 against its much lambasted predecessor Windows Vista.
OK, we admit it. Vista originally received quite glowing reviews and with the benefit of hindsight that was, perhaps, something of a mistake.
But is Vista really as bad as all that? Now it has been patched and service packed up, it works so if you’ve got a single PC, or a floor of PCs that you’ve recently rolled out with Vista, is spending money on upgrading to Windows 7 really necessary?
There’s a lot to get through so let’s get on with it.
PriceThe cost of any edition of Windows is always going to be something of a moving target as
