Holdovers from Windows XP and Windows Vista

Of the administrative tools included in Windows 7, the following work similarly to their predecessors:

  • Component Services—Manages COM+ software development components.
  • Computer Management—Manages computer hardware, services, and events.
  • Data Sources—Manages database sources and access.
  • Local Security Policy—Configures local security policy settings.
  • Services—Enables, disables, and manages services.

The interfaces used by these tools are essentially unchanged from Windows XP and Windows Vista, and are not discussed in detail in this article.
