    Huerte, Leo Francis A. 2012106442 CpE  –   3 EXPERIMENT 2 : MAINTAINING WINDOWS 2000 / XP Discussion of Results Lab 2.1 Navigate and Customize Windows XP This laboratory work helps us become familiar with navigating and customizing the Windows XP user interface. We were able to do things such as customizing the taskbar, working with a program shortcut, cleaning up the Windows XP desktop, and locating essential system information. Windows XP is a  bit different from Windows 2000 / 98 so it's critical to learn how to navigate it  properly. Lab 2.2 Use Windows Media Player In this lab, we were able to experience using Windows Media Player. We were able to change some of its option like the skin. Windows Media Player can be use to play, copy, and catalog audio and video files from a computer, CD, DVD, or the Internet. The really interesting thing about Windows Media Player is that it    uses visualizations while playing the music. It’s really cool to see the visualization move according to the beat of the music. Lab 2.3 Use the Microsoft Management Console In this activity, we learn how to add snap-ins and save settings using the Microsoft Management Console in creating a customized console. The Microsoft Management Console is a standard management tool that can be use to create a customized console by adding administrative tools called snap-ins. With the help of this console, we can be able to manage many computers from a single machine  by using it as the main server of the computers. Lab 2.4 Analyze a System with Windows 2000/XP Event Viewer After finishing this laboratory activity, we learned how to operate with Windows 2000/XP Event Viewer. From this, we were able to view normal startup events, view failed events, record event logs and compare recent events to logged events. Microsoft Event Viewer is a common administrative tool that is used to find out the status of a system and to diagnose non-fatal startup problems. Lab 2.5 Use Task Manager    In this activity, we were able to get the hang of using Task Manager in examining a system. It is very useful tool that allows the user to switch between tasks, end tasks, and observe system performance and use. We can also customize Task Manager according to our preferences. Aside from that, we can also change the way the information is shown. Task Manager is a really useful app but we should be careful in using it. It could be dangerous to accidentally end a process using this because some data or state cannot be save and data could be lost. Lab 2.6 Monitor the Memory Counter We were able to monitor the memory counter to investigate a possible memory shortage. During defragmentation, which is recognizing separated fragments of related data into a contiguous arrangement, we were able to analyze the memory usage. The memory counters can help determine how much of the total system resources a particular process, such as defragmenting the hard drive, is using. Lab 2.7 Manage Virtual Memory In this laboratory activity, we learned how to operate virtual memory. We were able to perform such tasks like locating the Windows tool for adjusting virtual memory settings, changing the size of the paging file, and moving the    location of the paging file. A virtual memory is a memory management technique using both hardware and software. It allows the operating system to make use of a hard drive to simulate RAM. Lab 2.8 Use Dr. Watson After performing this activity, we were able to use Dr. Watson to collect detailed information about the state of an operating system. We also learned how to troubleshoot program errors using Dr. Watson, as well as customizing it. Dr. Watson is a program error debugger designed to detect problems caused by applications and stop them before the problem affect other applications. Huerte, Leo Francis A. 2012106442 CpE  –   3 EXPERIMENT 2 : MAINTAINING WINDOWS 2000 / XP Conclusion In this chapter, we gained knowledge in maintaining Windows XP. We were able to operate this specific operating system as well as try some of its programs and tools. Navigating a new operating system is really interesting since it is a bit different from the older OS. We were able to explore administrative tool can be
