I have posted a thread in the Windows 7 forum about using OneCare. To my surprise, Microsoft is ending it in June 2009.
My Current Subscription says itís valid until Feb 2010.
Does this mean that MS will stop selling OneCare on that date, and then let current subscriber run out?
So there is going to be a "Free" replacement codenamed Morro. Should i stick with this, or try something new?
I really liked OneCare, i tried Norton for 4 years and for a brief time "Free" antivirus software, and i was pulling my hair out daily. Since i installed OneCare, i have not had any problems.
