Guides: Windows Components

The topic for this guide is Windows components. A Windows component is an underlying technology that facilitates the operation of the operating system. This includes configuration files, built-in applications, etc.. Below are available chapters for this guide.

These provide Windows NT (NT4, 2000, XP, Longhorn) based operating systems the ability to restrict access for resources, such as files, based on the control properties set on that resource.
The Windows command prompt allows for text-based command-line command execution, which provides an alternate method for major tasks and makes automation easier.
These are legacy configuration text files. Most programs do not make use of these anymore, but Windows retains the functionality for these, and some programs will still use them.
The registry is the central data respository for Windows and applications that run under Windows.
A service is a modular program that adds a particular feature or feature set when installed and enabled to run.

"Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship[...] Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." - Herman Goering: Intelligence office interview at Nuremberg, 1946/4/18
