Panda Managed Office Protection Review

I have never been able to say with any conviction that panda software is of any use, to anybody, and unfortunately this new software has not changed my mind.

Diskeeper 2010 Home Server Edition Review

This new edition from Diskeeper looks pretty good, I have to be honest I have never been a big fan of Diskeeper, I have always felt O&O Defrag has always had something more to offer. The initial install is very standard apart from the fact you have to install the initial software from the WHS […]

Windows Home Server and Norton Backup Products

Ok then guys just heads up been reading a post here that Symantec backup products such as Ghost seems to cause major headaches because of the services it installs on the server called “Volume Snapshot Service”. Now all I know is that it stops WHS having the ability to backup up, the post doesn’t mention […]


Turning your Windows Home Server in to a Domain Server

I have just seen a really interesting post over at that explains how to turn your Windows Home Server into a Domain Controller. This looks really good but there are a lot of unknowns with this such as how roaming profiles will work with this whether they will even work at all and will […]
