  • Question

  • If I uninstall my Windows Live OneCare 1.5 subscrition and install Beta 2.0 will I encounter the same type of problems as I did when I uninstalled Norton Security and System works?

  • You should not encounter any problems with uninstalling 1.6 via add/remove programs, but you can run the cleanup tool if desired - http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=828910&SiteID=2

    Note that you will need to remove the 2.0 beta upon completion of testing and install the production version once again at that time.

  • Why should I want to reinstall the program after testing the Beta, assuming that no major problems are encountered. Should I install the Beta on all networked computers or can I just test it on one?

  • You can test on more than one. You will need to uninstall the beta as it communicates with a test environment. At some point in time, the beta code will cease being updated and you cannot convert the beta to production without a reinstall.
