  • If I purchase a disk copy NEW of Windows Live OneCare and the box is labeled version 2.0.

  • Yes. The installer on CD and from http://onecare.live.com will always check for and download the latest version and latest signatures at installation. Once installed, as long as your subscription is active, you will automatically be updated to the latest available version.

  • You can install over the web right now and activate a subscription at any time before the 90 day trial is up. It will start nagging you eventually. If you activate with the retail CD key, the trial period ends immediately and your 12 month subscription begins.
