32. C. You would actually set the exclusion list by using Group Policies, most likely on a server acting as a domain controller (the specific policy is Exclude Directories In Roaming Profile). Note that on a PC upgraded from Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, user profiles reside under C:\WINNT\ PROFILES\ <username>. Objective: Configure and manage user profiles (Chapter 12).
33. A. You'd follow the -S qualifier with the location of the distribution files. The command is simply UPDATE.EXE to apply the service pack to a standalone PC. Objective: Perform post-installation updates and product activation (Chapter 4).
34. D. If the Encrypted Data Recovery Agents policy isn't present, EFS won't work on any computer that's a member of the domain. Making a policy change on the domain controller is a whole lot easier than making a change on each workstation, and besides, the policies mentioned in choices A and C do not exist. Objective: Configure, manage, and troubleshoot Encrypting File System (EFS) (Chapter 3).
35. A. This accurately-named list box setting lets non-Unicode applications display menus and dialog boxes in the language in which they were created. Objective: Configure multiple-language support for users (Chapter 5).
36. D. You must remember that when both share level permissions and NTFS permissions have been set for the same resource, any restrictions at either level do apply. Objective: Control access to files and folders by using permissions (Chapter 11).
37. C, D, and E. Windows XP actually supports as many as ten simultaneously active displays. Because choice C is true, choice B is not. Objective: Configure multiple-display support (Chapter 8).
38. A, B, and C. Note that the qualifier you'd use with WINNT32.EXE is /CHECKUPGRADEONLY. You could add the line ReportOnly in UNATTEND. TXT to create a log file of compatibility issues without actually installing the operating system. Objective: Prepare a computer to meet upgrade requirements (Chapter 4).
39. B. No such setting as QuickKeys exists. StickyKeys lets you type key combinations, such as Ctrl+Alt+Del, in sequence instead of all at once. ToggleKeys makes sounds when you hit NumLock, CapsLock, or ScrollLock. Objective: Configure and troubleshoot accessibility services (Chapter 5).
40. A. The range for APIPA addresses is 169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254. Yes, this question is nitpicky. So is the exam. Objective: Configure and trouble-shoot the TCP/IP protocol (Chapter 6).
41. A. The Recovery Console takes five to seven megabytes, but it sure could come in handy in a situation such as this. The PC is apparently booting far enough to get to the splash screen, meaning that you should have the chance to choose Recovery Console from the text menu that appears earlier. Objective: Recover system state data and user data by using the Recovery Console (Chapter 15).
42. A. You can also specify which profile should be the default and how long Windows XP should wait before it chooses the default profile. Objective: Manage hardware profiles (Chapter 9).
43. C. You just gotta memorize these. Watch out; the 'BASIC' templates are supplied with Windows 2000 - not with XP. Objective: Configure, manage, and troubleshoot a security configuration (Chapter 11).
44. C. A counter log has less impact on system performance than a continuous trace log, especially if you set the counter interval to a fairly long value. Alerts are for sending messages regarding one-time threshold events. Objective: Optimize and troubleshoot memory performance (Chapter 14).
45. B. It's not a bad idea to make sure you understand the functions of ipconfig, nbtstat, and tracert. (Be especially careful to learn the ipconfig command qualifiers.) Objective: Configure and trouble-shoot the TCP/IP protocol (Chapter 6).
46. A, B, and D. The system is low on disk space, which means fragmentation is likely to be a problem. The Disk Cleanup Wizard gets rid of unnecessary files and allows the Disk Defragmenter tool to work more effectively. More RAM helps; Windows XP itself typically needs around 80MB before you load any programs or data files. However, setting the pagefile size to a low value (the default is 1.5 times RAM) hurts performance as Windows dynamically resizes the pagefile upward. Objectives: Optimize and troubleshoot memory performance, optimize and troubleshoot disk performance (Chapter 14).
47. D. Remember also that the NetBIOS name is the same as the computer name. You don't need WINS in a pure Windows XP/2000 network, just for networks that include legacy computers (everything prior to Windows 2000!). Objective: Configure and troubleshoot the TCP/IP protocol (Chapter 6).
48. A and B. You don't have to log on as an Administrator to schedule a task, nor do you have to be logged on when the task is due to execute. You do, however, have to specify a user account that has appropriate rights to execute the program, when you create the task. FYI: If you schedule lots of tasks, and none of them run, the Task Scheduler service is likely stopped. If some run but others don't, you probably have a security issue. Objective: Configure, manage, and troubleshoot the Task Scheduler (Chapter 14).
