Has anyone tried this?

At £25 for 3 PCs it seems very good value.

Just noticed that it's only available in US at the moment! D'oh!

A review of 15 internet security suites a few months back from pc advisor rated windows live one care as one of the worst and doesnt pick up everything on a computer or manage inward and outward traffic very well. I wouldn't buy it.

I been running it and thought it was good,but i couldnt load some pages in Firefox,and someone here told me to use ccleaner,that worked perfect,but i thought Windows Live Care was supposed to be doing that ! so i dont bother with it now.
Somewhere along the way i put in a USA zip code,so Windows live care thinks i am in the states ! and i could have used it for 3 months trial,but never bothered.

I don't remember putting in a US postcode, but I managed to get onto the beta trial and it should last for another 4 months. It does slow web browsing down, especially the phishing filter and if you turn it off you constantly get messages asking if you want to turn t back on. It also causes issues with Firefox including a total freeze requiring re-boot. If these issues were ironed out it would be worthwhile as it contains a backup facility too, but I will be removing it this weekend and relying on the free stuff recommended by this forum.
