  • Is this a new subscription? If so, install OneCare by downloading the trial from http://onecare.live.com , click on subscribe after opening OneCare. Enter the LiveID used to purchase online or select the option to activate/subscribe with the PIN or key if you purchased a retail copy of OneCare.
    You can repeat this on up to 2 other PCs using the same LiveID to activate (the key from a retail box only gets used to start the subscription once).
    Follow the OneCare prompts for actions to take to get to Green status.

    If it is a renewal, see this post:
