* Windows Vista Import Pictures and Videos Wizard prompts you to assign subject-, scene- or event-related descriptive names for photos when you import them to your PC.
* Instant Search box feature built in to the ever-present Start Menu, you can enter a word that you know is in the file, a phrase, a title, an author's name, or other terms to launch a fast, on-the-fly search.
* Parental Controls gives you the option to manage when the PC is used and what Web sites, programs or games each family member may access. Activity reports can also be automatically generated.
* Beefed-up firewall technology (designed to help block out the incoming bad stuff automatically) and the new Windows Defender will automatically scan your PCs for infections.
