  • Why is my Windows Live One Center taking over 24 hrs to run Tune Up. It shows it's running but it's been almost 24 hrs & only 7% finished. What's up?

  • Cancel the tune up and check your hard drive for errors. How to check your hard drive for errors - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265 After checking your hard drive for errors run tune up again and if tune up hangs at 7% again please contact support.

  • In addition to Jim's suggestion, there are two other possible causes for this:
    1. you are running OneCare along with other conflicting security software.
    2. OneCare has actually stopped working, due to a conflict or it encountered a problem when scanning a file on the PC.

    If the problem is due to number 1, you need to remove all other antivirus software from the PC if OneCare is installed. This includes anti-spyware programs that do "real time" protection.
