Safely dual-boot Windows 7 and XP
- 03 August, 2010 02:41
ANSWER: You can't keep System Restore points if you dual-boot with an earlier operating system. XP will delete the Restore Points when it reboots, since the Windows 7 disk structure is incompatible with the way XP reads the hard drive. A workaround is available, but this can create its own problems.

Endpoint Security and Virtualisation
Besides form factor, virtual systems are not really that different than physical systems. They both use the same operating systems and applications. They both present users with computing resources such as RAM and hard drives. Consequently, the ability to exploit vulnerabilities in a physical environment will present a significant threat to virtualised environments as well. This paper examines the different endpoint security methods for virtualised environments and presents how Endpoint Protection security provides optimal performance, protection and manageability.
