If you've worked with Windows for any length of time, you know that each subsequent version of Microsoft's operating system tends to be almost the same...and yet entirely different. Windows 7 is no exception, giving us many familiar logs, structures, and artifacts that we know from Windows XP or 2003...only revised and expanded, or in different locations, or in different formats, or all of the above. Not to mention the brand new stuff.Harlan has once again found the sweet spot - instead of fully revising the Second Edition of his book (which would be premature, as most environments still have extensive XP / 2003 infrastructure in place, and likely will for some time), he provides a companion book that builds on his previous volumes and outlines the new technologies and key differences between Windows 7 and earlier versions of the OS.Now that many corporations are finally rolling out Windows 7 in force, forensic examiners are also making the transition to analyzing "new" Windows systems. This book provides the essential reference for Windows 7 analysis. While many of the technologies and techniques in Harlan's book have been discussed on blogs, mailing lists, and at conferences, he has been kind enough to collect the information in one place. In addition, he has been thorough enough to verify and expand upon the information through his own research and analysis, providing real world examples, tips, and cautions along the way.Finally, as always Harlan writes with a keen awareness - both first-hand and through his extensive industry contacts - of what is current "in the field". This encompasses not only the specific questions and challenges faced by real analysts in real cases, but the tools and techniques in use or under development to address those issues.
