You must be one of the two downloads shown on the majorgeeks page!!

I think I'll leave it a while yet!

It's a whole new area they're opening up, I'm still not sure what to make of it - upgrades to hotmail, their own all sounds good, but looking at the headlines on the PCA homepage, people are still picking up critical flaws in IE6, which Microsoft have admitted cannot be removed from Windows XP, so it's 6 of one and half a dozen of the other....

It looks very interesting, but like GroupFC, I think I will leave it alone for a while.It would be nice to hear further comments after you have given it a fair trial.

Out of interest, did you remove your av before installing 'one care'?

Not impressed tuneup consists of defragging,disc cleanup and backup the latter caused computer to crash with blue screen error.Its also a big file 40odd mb,have uninstalled it, cant see any advantage as most of the tuneup is basic housekeeping. If they eventually charge for this software, I for one would not purchase it, as for the antivirus protection and firewall i can't comment as i have not run this long enough.

I use AVG and Antispy which are more than enough.


  frankie 19:38 01 Dec 2005

did not remove or stop my av which is avg i just went for it still all ok one xaupdate check which required a tick pc been off and on three times since my last post no probs,but as sinbad says i would not pay for it,as i have free avg,zone alarm,spybot,spyware blaster,so why pay?no way,they are all excellent never had a trojan,or virus,when there on..
