One thing you should know about me: I'm no fan of Windows Vista. How Do I Remove A Program From The Startup List. Dealer License Orlando Florida. Some things about it just annoy me to death, like the unnecessary overhaul of certain interface elements.

That said, Vista has a few features I positively love, starting with connection sharing. In other words, you can turn your Internet-connected notebook into a Wi-Fi hotspot for others to share. This can come in mighty handy if you're the only one in your group with, say, a wireless modem or wired Ethernet connection.

Here's how to set it up: 1. Click Start, Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center. Click Set up a connection or network. Click Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, and then click Next. Enter a name for your network, choose a security type (WEP is probably fine, given that you're sharing your network with people you know), and then enter a security key. Check the Save this network box, then click Next. If you see a box marked Turn on Internet Connection Sharing, go ahead and click it.
