Windows Vista® on Dell provides your employees with a high-performing, reliable PC that is ready when
they are. The fast, integrated desktop search feature enhances access to information. Windows Vista®
can make users more productive online as well, with tabbed browsing in Internet Explorer 7 - making
it easy to manage multiple browser windows.

windows that allow users to work with fewer distractions and less toggling. Live icons show a preview
of documents, and new innovative ways to navigate the windows on the desktop allow users to find what
they are looking for fast.
To mitigate threats from malicious software such as viruses, spyware, and root kits, Windows Vista®
includes Internet Explorer 7 Protected Mode - unique to Windows Vista® , helping prevent the silent
install of malicious code. Data is further protected through Windows Vista® BitLockerTM drive encryption,
which can protect against data theft from lost or stolen PCs. In addition to protecting your data,
Windows Vista® also offers options for recovering it. Shadow Copy technology can automatically store
files as users work on them, so earlier versions can easily be retrieved if they are changed or if
key content is deleted.
To help address the security risks of mobile computing, Windows Vista® includes the latest wireless
security protocols so users can connect to Wi-Fi networks securely. Network Access Protection, when
used with the Windows Server Longhorn infrastructure, can ensure that computers are in a secure
state before they are allowed to reconnect to the network, preventing them from spreading a virus
inside your network perimeter.
Windows Vista® provides cost-effective networking solutions. It can automatically optimize file
transfers by detecting how much network bandwidth is available and tuning itself to receive more or
less data at any given time, which can provide an excellent return on Wide Area Network investments
when transferring data between sites.
Windows Vista® is optimized for mobile hardware. The new Windows Mobility Center can put all of the
most commonly used mobile controls in one place, while improved power management can help make your
battery last longer. Windows Vista® also makes it easy to stay in sync - so your data and devices
can switch seamlessly between online and offline states.
