Installing Microsoft Security Essentials Software

Microsoft has released the new Microsoft Security Essentials software for download and install on Windows PC’s everywhere! The new Microsoft Security Essentials software is a replacement for what was known as Windows Live OneCare. The installation file for the new software was pretty light. Total download size was only 8.61MB. Sitting less than 9MB, it places it less than a third of my least favorite application, Adobe Reader. Oh, and this is a full-blown security application, not just a PDF reader. Once downloaded the installation process couldn’t have been much easier as well. The general installation steps were expected, there was a Microsoft Genuine Advantage software check in there. After that, a system update... [Read more]

I’ve never been one to do much gaming on my PC. I’ve always left that to my game consoles like my Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, Xbox, Xbox 360 or the Nintendo Wii.

All of Excel 2007 Toolbars

Here’s the 2nd post of all the toolbars in the Microsoft Office 2007 productivity suite. First I shared all of the toolbars from Microsoft Word 2007. In this post I’ll be sharing all of the toolbars from Microsoft Excel 2007. I love the new ribbon interface that’s available in the Microsoft Office 2007 system. Part of the reason for that is that I wasn’t too much of an excessively experienced user of the various applications. If you were an experienced user then you’ve probably spent time looking for one of the controls and features. Sometimes they’ve put them where you would expect them, other times you’re looking and looking until you finally find them in a toolbar that doesn’t... [Read more]

The Courier mixes motion gestures, stylus and touch-screen functionality to a device that puts the book back into notebook. After watching the video for the use of the Microsoft Courier that was shared on Gizmodo, the combination of input options represents a broad change in how people will start to interact with devices like this. The video walks through the scenario of a user preparing for a meeting and collecting notes and details to share. She slides a contact name from her address book onto a map to get directions for the meeting. Later she slides another name onto her journal for the event to... [Read more]
