Has anyone had any experiance of "Windows Onecare Beta" Is it a one stop antivirus / firewall program? Will it ever take the place of Norton Internet Secuity and the like? Is this Microsoft tring to corner another market place?

Not heard of this, just checked it out and it looks quite comprehensive. Anyone using it?

It would appear that once it is out of beta then MS will be charging an annual update fee of about £29.00

Not an unfair price considering!

Hi guys

It is still free at this stage, hence the name BETA

Good morning all, I've beeen thinking about getting One Care as it would be a one stop shop instead of a modular approach. There is a big but though, I read yesterday in an American magazine (PC MAG) that it still doesn't scan incoming and outgoing e-mail's. It is for that reason that I am holding off. I understand that it might be included in the final release but I have read nothing yet that says it will be included. Hope this helps. J.B.

The firewall default settings also leave a lot to be desired click here
