# 12 : Windows 7 God Mode, Server 2008 Local DoS
In Windows 7 and Vista, Microsoft seems to have gone out of its way to force us to drill through layers and layers of control panels. In this episode we take a look at a nifty easter egg that allows you to get all of those features and options into one easy to navigate spot!
This same feature, however, can be used to create an awesome local denial of service on Windows Server 2008! Watch the episode and see what the problem is and how to resolve it.
