    Wonder of anyone has help ideas for me to learn to operate Windows Vista Home
    Premium (present from my brother), specially to
    - set up workable user accounts,
    - clean away unneccessary 'window'dressing' in email and Explorer;
    - if it is possible to increase the hard drive by using both sides
    - what security software is part of the package
    - if it is compatible with 'SpeedUpMyPC' and 'Easycleaner' to clear away
    excess duplicate files,
    - it if is provided with a user-friendly manual to address registry errors
    etc,
    - if it has a facility to REALLY delete (shred) files to enable memory
    recovery
    - if updates will be or are available to address the user accounts problem
    because this really scares me to use Vista at all?

    Just for interest: some of the books referenced below can be checked out of
    your local library. I learned a lot by checking out "Windows Vista Step by
    Step". By going through the book page by page with the book open in front
    of your computer, you can learn a lot too.
