Windows OneCare?

Running short on time this morning and wanted to point you all at this, the question I have to ask myself even before loading it is this. I have Norton Antivirus, a firewall, a spyware sweeper and a host of other tools to keep the bugs out why would a geek need these prevention tools.

The average consumer who is running a 3 year old antivirus definition may benefit thats for sure. More later when i get a chance to play around with the applications.

“The consumer-facing tool, which features virus scanning, firewall protection, data backup and PC cleanup tools, has been released to the Windows Live portal as part of Microsoft’s plan to extend the beta testing process to a wider audience.”
