Thank you fingees for your comment but I would add the same thought as bluto 1
Is there any conflict with other A/V or spyware already installed?
Perhaps fingees would care to add his view on this please.
Thank you

Addtional comment.
I should have added that I run various anti spyware progs each in turn on a daily basis including Microsofts Giant antispyware but I only use one antivirus Avast at present .
I have had no problems with this combination but would like to hear from bluto 1

I raised the matter of conflicts between progs with the microsoft forum.
My question was

' I am very interested in trying ONE CARE LIVE but I run Avast anti virus
and a few anti spy progs including Microsoft Antispyware (on a rotating basis)
Will ONE CARE LIVE conflict with my other progs if I give it a try?
Thank you'

I got the following comment

'Antivirus and firewall programs known to conflict with Windows OneCare
are Symantec products[Norton Antivirus,Norton SystemWorks or;Norton
Internet Security] as well as McAfee Internet Security Suite and Trend
Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005.I don't know whether Avast has
any problem with Windows OneCare.

During Setup, Windows OneCare checks for the programs listed above and
will notify you to uninstall any that are found.
Windows OneCare recommends that you uninstall any other antivirus and
firewall software (except for Windows default Firewall), before
beginning Windows OneCare installation.'

I hope it helps the discussion

I too have MS firewall(which I thought was switched off-maybe it was switched back on again at MS last update) together with Zone control and both firewalls seem happy together
