Just installed OneCare 2.0 beta on a brand new install of Vista Ultimate. After starting a Complete Scan it said I had been protected from 7 issues, and I clicked view report and saw 7 failed quarantines. I clicked OK and wanted to see the report again. I clicked "View last scan report" about 10 minutes ago and it's still done nothing. Things brings up a slew of issues:
- If a quarantine fails I should see a lot more than just "failed". I want to know which file, why it failed and suggested courses of action. "Failed" is worse than useless as it creates fear that something is wrong yet doesn't do a thing to help the user.
- There is obviously a bug if you click "View last scan report" and it shows nothing.
- When I *did* see the "View details" report it said this in the header, "OneCare has successfully cleaned or stopped the unwanted software" yet *every single item* in the list shows an Action of "Quarantine Failed".
- After I clicked "View last scan report" I couldn't even click on "Change settings", even that did nothing. Had to reboot.
Over all the UI of OneCare is *very* unresponsive. I've had several instances of windows popping up *behind* the main window or starting minimized. It often takes 30 to 60 seconds before a window will pop up.
Granted this is beta but these are very important issues. The above handling of the issues would send my mother into a panic that her computer was fraught with peril. I really hope these issues will be addressed before release.
