Learn About Configuring Microsoft Windows Vista Client
BackBy Certification Magazine —1 | 2 | 3 |
These practice test questions from MeasureUp are based on Microsoft's exam 70-620: Configuring Microsoft Windows Vista Client.
The audience for this exam includes individuals who support client computers that are running Microsoft Windows Vista. Experience with configuring and managing security and network connectivity for client operating systems and client-based applications will help you pass this exam.
By passing exam 70-620, you earn the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification. You also earn credit toward these certifications:
Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) on Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000.
Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) on Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000.
Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Consumer Support Technician, Enterprise Support Technician and Enterprise Administrator.
Multiple answers, multiple choice.
You are a desktop support technician for your organization. You have just deployed Microsoft Windows Vista throughout your department.
You need to implement a procedure that will determine the initial performance and system configuration of each computer. You plan to use this information for comparison and analysis for any future performance or system issues.
What should you do? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
A. Configure the Windows Logs to overwrite events as needed.
B. Schedule a configured Data Collector Set to run daily.
C. Capture baseline performance and system data.
D. Create a Data Collector Set.
E. Use the Reliability Monitor to see required history.
Windows Vista allows for the use of Data Collector Sets to capture computer performance and system configuration. You need to create a Data Collector Set with the specific counters and data in which you are interested. To allow for future comparisons, you should run the Data Collector Set initially after deployment to establish a baseline of expected performance and behaviors. Should a future performance issue be reported, you could then run the Data Collector Set again and compare the results with the baseline to see how the performance and configuration data has changed.
You do not need to configure the Data Collector Set to run daily. This would not be required to compare a system experiencing performance issues with the expected baseline. Scheduling would be useful if you were trying to identify performance trending over time.
You do not need to configure the Windows Log configuration because the Windows Logs do not provide extensive system diagnostic or performance information. Windows Logs do provide real-time information related to services and applications.
You cannot use the Reliability Monitor to see a history of performance. Reliability Monitor provides an historical view of system changes and failures over time.
Selected Scenarios for Monitoring Performance With Windows Vista

Single answer, multiple choice.
You plan to install Windows Vista Ultimate on several desktop computers at your company.
You must ensure that after installation, the desktop computers support the Windows Aero user experience.
What should you do?
A. Ensure that the computer has a Microsoft-approved TV tuner card.
B. Ensure that the video card is Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) compatible.
C. Ensure that the video card supports TV output.
D. Ensure that the computer has a monitor that supports a refresh rate of 60 hertz.
You should ensure that the video card is WDDM compatible. WDDM is the new model for display drivers that targets Windows Vista computers in an effort to create an enhanced display experience. Windows Aero is the name of the new visual style in the Windows Vista operating system.
You do not need a TV tuner card to support the Windows Aero user experience. Windows Vista can use TV tuner cards to view and record television shows.
Windows Aero does not require a video card that supports TV output. Video cards that support TV output simply enable Windows Vista computers to view video on connected televisions.
Windows Aero does not require a monitor that supports a refresh rate of 60 hertz. It requires a monitor that supports any refresh rate that is higher than 10 hertz. A monitor that supports higher refresh rates may produce less screen flickering.

Troubleshoot Problems With Windows Aero
Single answer, multiple choice.
You are a desktop support technician for your company. All desktop computers run Microsoft Windows Vista Business. A corporate security strategy is implemented, and it allows only administrator-approved applications to be installed on these computers.
Joyce receives the message displayed in the exhibit whenever she tries to make certain configuration changes to her computer. You verify that Joyce is a member of the local Administrators group.
You need to make configuration changes to prevent the message from appearing when Joyce configures her computer.
What should you do?
A. Change the behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in User Account Control (UAC) Admin Approval Mode.
B. Turn off Windows Firewall and disable running all administrators in User Account Control (UAC) Admin Approval Mode.
C. Add Joyce to the local Power Users group.
D. Add Joyce to the local Users group.
You should change the behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in UAC Admin Approval Mode. UAC is a new feature in Windows Vista that prevents unauthorized configuration changes and silent installations. The message that is displayed confirms a user's decision to make configuration changes. This helps prevent viruses from making changes to a user's computer in the security context of the user but without the user's permission. To change the elevation prompt behavior, open the Local Security Policy snap-in from the Administrative Tools Control Panel applet. Then open the User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode policy. Change the policy setting from Prompt for consent to No prompt. With this setting, the UAC message will not be displayed whenever Joyce attempts to make configuration changes that require administrative privileges.
