The retail release date of October 22, 2009, is upon us, and Microsoft Windows 7 is about to make a big splash. In his photo gallery, Windows 7 Walkthrough: System and Security Control Panel, Greg Shultz explores the various screens, configuration menus, and dialog boxes you will encounter in the System and Control Panel.

As in previous versions of Windows, the deeper recesses of the Control Panel in Windows 7 are where all the performance tweaks will take place, so Greg will be delving deeply into this area in the coming months. His photo gallery is a good place to start your own exploration of Windows 7.
