A hardware profile is used to store the configuration settings for a set of devices and services that are used on a computer. In Windows XP Professional you can create different hardware profiles to meet a user’s needs in different situations. The user can then choose the appropriate profile the Windows XP Professional should load when starting the computer. To ensure the optimal performance in different networking environments, we should create different hardware profiles that the users can choose from under different network environments.
