    How many other consumers had Windows Live One Care 'Anti Virus Protection"
    "crash" after installing Windows Vista?

    No this is not a riddle. Apparently not many people with Windows Live One
    Care installed have downloaded Vista yet.
    I uninstalled what was left of WLOC and tried to reinstall the new Beta
    version for Vista after I learned about it on the WLOC Forum yesterday but
    WLOC won't let me install it because I am still and active subscriber on
    their customer list until 5/2007.
    After unsuccessful sessions with "Support" in all of the categoroies that
    you could think of I went back to my old standby friend Mcaffee.

    McAfee has a track record of not reporting trojan horses as malware. They
    have openly stated that they will not report trojans created by any
    government. While I have nothing to hide, I don't want my anti-virus
    company deciding what it will, or will not, report as malware. In the past,
    McAfee has chosen not to report maliciously spread trojans that other
    vendors reported as viruses. McAfee called these trojans "Remote
    administration tools".

    By the way, there's no "new beta version for Vista". The Vista version has
    been officially released. That may be part of your problem. And if you
    were a beta user, you should have gotten an email offer to install the full
    version for 19.95 for a year on up to 3 PCs. That's a heck of a deal.

    Works perfectly. I find it necessary to install Vista first and then add
    applicaitons. If you can install applications and then Vista, will you post
    up how?

    This is not making sense. I'd like to help. Install Vista>then install WOC
    1.5 by going to and install the 90 trial>open One
    Care>Activate>if you already have a subscription to WOC it will convert the
    90 trial of 1.5 to WOC per your subscription.

  7. I have been testing WLOC 1.5 since Vista Beta 2 and have been a WLOC
    subscriber for almost a year now. Other than some minor issues with
    installing 1.5B, it has been working great!

    I upgraded to the final release last week and have been even more
