good books for beginning windows programming?
ok i recently got malware and found out that my malware scanner took forever to scan because the malware downloaded a bunch of files into my local service and network service folders. i had no ideas that these system protected folders existed. in light of this new found ignorance, i now want to learn more about windows, from the basics functions of what certain things do to the more programmer specific stuff.
i'm normally a ubuntu user. i first read the "ubuntu pocket guide" to learn more about ubuntu and how everything functions in general. then i read "Understanding UNIX/LINUX Programming: A Guide to Theory and Practice" to get the more programming specific things.
are there are good books that are the windows equivalent of the two book i mentioned above? basically one good book to get a general understand of how windows works and another for programming specific things. any recommendations?
