Windows Vista features

Windows TAP team introduces a new service as the solution to delegating the install of per-machine ActiveX controls to a standard user in the enterprise. This is the subject of today’s Live Meeting with Microsoft TAP team. It consists of a Windows service, a Group Policy administrative template, and a few changes in Internet Explorer. However, it is not in the current Beta 2 yet. Still need to wait. However, I found a very nice and neat feature in Vista. Under Control Panel -> Programs -> Currently Running Programs, the Windows Defender shows all the currently running processes, and their details information. For example, Microsoft Office Live Meeting application is being shown like this:

File Name: PWConsole.exe
Display Name: Microsoft Office Live Meeting

Now we can find out any non-legitimate processes easily.
