    I have Kaspersky Internet Security on my desktop now and am really pleased.
    Since I have Vista Home Premium i am wondering if WindowsLiveOneCare would
    give the same security that I get from Kaspersky 7 ? The reason Im asking is
    with having Vista I was thinking that to have all security from Microsoft may
    be a lot better. Thanks for your feedback an everyone have a safe an happy
    week.

    Different security programs have different detection rates, performance etc.
    Check it out for yourself:

    No. Having the best security software is better, regardless of who makes it.
    Live OneCare is a new kid on the block, and I think you will find other
    programs with better performance out there.

    If you are very pleased with Kaspersky, there would be no reason for you to
    switch.
    If you wish to try OneCare, you can remove the Kaspersky suite and install a 90
    day free trial of OneCare - http://onecare.live.com - however, I think your
    should stick with what you like unless OneCare offers something you desire. As
    for capabilities, Kaspersky is highly rated by multiple sources. OneCare affords
    good protection, too, but being from Microsoft certainly doesn't make it any
    better than other offerings.
