Getting Started with Windows Vista

Do you have a new Windows Vista-powered computer? Or have you upgraded to Vista from Windows XP? You'll quickly discover that this exciting new operating system from Microsoft is a huge evolution in how your PC works. From simple office operations to loading graphics-heavy texas hold em websites. Vista makes your computer more secure, easier to navigate and more fun than ever before.

In this fun and fast-paced DVD, TV personality and author Andy Walker takes you through what you need to know to get started with Windows Vista. He covers Vista "out of the box" to show you what critical tasks you need to do the first time you start Vista up. The Vista Essentials section reveals exciting new features in security and productivity. Then in Vista Tips and Tricks, you'll learn the secrets of Vista geeks, without having to become one.

And another GSV first: You now have the option of a standard DVD, or a hi-def WMV-HD DVD. Enjoy the clarity of crisp, clear screen shots while watching the video on your computer or WMV compatible device in full hi-definition resolution.

At GSV, our goal is to provide you with a clear and watchable tutorial video that will get you up and running in as little amount of time as possible.

We don't pretend to be an 'A to Z' of anything we teach. There are other companies that specialize in comprehensive training for hundreds of dollars per package.

Rather, we offer a basic 'nuts and bolts' starter class. It's a great way to get up to speed without taking days or breaking the bank. Check out all our training materials at:
