1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely appaling, unforgivably useless, 25 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Microsoft Windows Live OneCare 1.5 (3 User Licence) (PC) (CD-ROM)
It is very important, and of great importance to me, that i inform people of how this product is beyond useless. I bought this software in good faith after connecting to the internet. I have just now, today, finally resolved all of the many problems my computer has had since it got infected with numerous bugs and viruses. Onecare provides little or no protection, It is a superficial program that doesn't really seem to do anything, it certainly offers nothing more than the standard protection windows comes with in the first place. I have had to clear my computer of trojan agents and all kinds on infections which brought the system to a stand still and i have a very good Pc.

It has taken me weeks to regain some kind or normality on my computer and i have only now managed to get back on the internet, after purchasing Kapersky (highly recommended). I have had no problems since buying some real virus protection and this is not a coincidence.

THIS PRODUCT IS A WASTE OF MONEY
A WASTE OF PLASTIC
A WASTE OF SPACE

I cannot stress this enough

DO NOT BUY IT

I don't know, I haven't had problems, at an early beta stage it was slowing down my computer, but after speaking to the FREE support line they asked to take control of my computer and showed me what the virus was and if it was okay to delete it.. as to the problems you have had, if you were already infected then you only have yourself to blame, if not then I see that you were one of the unfortunate ones, I have been running OneCare every since the first beta and not one virus has crippled my computer or come near to doing so..
