Like in the original Guitar Hero, the player uses a peripheral in the shape of a solid-body electric guitar to simulate playing rock music as notes scroll towards the player. Most of the gameplay from the original game remains intact, and provides new modes and note combinations. The game features more than 40 popular licensed songs, many of them cover versions recorded for the game, spanning five decades (from the 1960s to the 2000s). The PlayStation 2 version of Guitar Hero II can be purchased individually or in a bundle that packages the game with a cherry red Gibson SG guitar controller. The Xbox 360 version of the game is offered in a bundle that packages the game with a white Gibson Explorer guitar controller.
Guitar Hero II features many popular real world Gibson, Epiphone, and Kramer guitars, including the Gibson Les Paul, Gibson SG, Gibson Flying V, (these three being the only ones available from the start) Gibson Sonex 180 and Gibson Explorer. Oddities such as the double necked Gibson EDS-1275 and unusual looking Gibson Corvus also make an appearance. Several available finishes are also recognizable from popular guitarists, including Zakk Wylde's bullseye Les Paul. As play progresses, several custom shaped guitars become available, although some are notable in the real world such as the US and Battle Axe (a similar looking bass is played by Gene Simmons, and the guitar was played by John Christ of Samhain/Danzig fame). Basses, such as the Music Man StingRay, Gibson Thunderbird, and the Höfner bass (as made famous by Paul McCartney, the bassist for the Beatles) are also available for co-op play.
Guitar Hero II is a music video game developed by Harmonix and distributed by RedOctane, and is a sequel to Guitar Hero. The game was released first to PlayStation 2 in 2006 but later released for the Xbox 360 in 2007. Guitar Hero II challenges players to recreate the lead guitar portions of many rock music songs using a specially designed guitar-shaped controller, based on either a Gibson SG for the PlayStation 2 version, a Gibson Explorer for the Xbox 360 version, or else a standard console controller. As notes scroll down the screen towards the player, the player must hit both the fret buttons on the guitar controller and the strum bar at the same time to successfully hit the notes. Successfully hitting notes improves the player's performance in the game and also raises their score, while missing notes will reduce the player's performance, and a poor performance may end the song prematurely. Each song can be played at one of four difficulty levels: Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert. These levels reflect the number of fret buttons used and the number and frequency of the notes to be performed.
Within each level lies several circular targets with a letter engraved on them. Finding them all in each level will earn you an achievement. Unfortunately, that's the only thing you obtain by collecting them. Even worse, the set of target marks is located in different parts of the level for each of the four difficulty levels, which means you're going to have to play through the game four times if you want to find them all.We've noted every Target Mark location throughout the walkthrough for the "Normal" difficulty level, but you're on your own for the remainders. Thankfully, the "easy" ones are generally out in the open and can usually be spotted as you traverse the level. However, for the "hard" and "extreme" levels, be sure to check every corner of every room, as they are deviously hidden.Achievements

During part of the beta phase, Internet Explorer 7 had updated its previous prototype logo before being changed in late 2005, seen on Vista builds 5098-5259. It is now sleeker in appearance and thicker, with bottom shadows. The shine from the ring has been also removed.
Microsoft Internet Explorer was rebranded to Windows Internet Explorer during the release of Windows Vista. This logo was used for IE7 and IE8. A slogan called "Have you had a break today?" was made due to the launch of Windows Live.
This logo is used for the Metro/Modern UI style version of Internet Explorer 10 and 11 on Windows 8/8.1 and Windows RT. Also used on Windows Phone since Internet Explorer 9. This logo also looks similar to the 1997 logo. This is used as a primary logo on Windows 8/8.1. This is used as a secondary logo on Windows 7/10. You can find this logo on Windows 7/8/8.1/10 by opening Internet Explorer, clicking the settings icon, and clicking "About Internet Explorer".
In Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049, the default browser was changed to IE's successor browser called Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Teams stopped supporting Internet Explorer 11 on November 30, 2020. Microsoft 365 products ended for the Internet Explorer 11 support on August 17, 2021. Internet Explorer 11 support ended on June 15, 2022 for Windows 10 version 20H2 and later, as well as Windows 10 IoT version 20H2 and later; however, Internet Explorer 11 will continue to receive security updates on other versions of Windows as long as the version of Windows it is running on is still supported.
