Hey!
I was invited to Windows Messenger Live BETA by a friend and I download it and installed it and found that it was much better than MSN Messenger with better User Interface and features, aftewr installing Windows Live Messenger I signed up for Windows Live Mail BETA that provides 2GB Space! While I signed up for that I came across Windows Live Security Center BETA and Windows Live OneCare BETA, they both are Anti-Viruses and Anti-Hacking programs and seems promising I just wanted to know what you guys think would it collide with my other anti-applications?

Windows Live™ Messenger beta

Windows Live™ Mail beta

Windows® Live™ OneCare™ beta

Windows Live™ Safety Center beta

Other Windows Live BETA Applications

These may not collide with other applications, but since these are BETA releases, they may (since it is MS, change that to will) have bugs and glitches, and they may interfere with other versions.
You can certainly play with them, since you are testing them (that is, after all, what a BETA release is for), but do not rely on any of these releases to supplant proven applications, especially in "mission-critical" areas like your computer's security.
Regards,
John

Ok Thanks JGWeed,
Since it's Microsoft like you said I will let it go, but waiting for the original versions to come out. I wont install the security appz but will hold on to the Messenger Service!
