Microsoft promoting sales of OneCare is now a blatant scam? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought 3 licenses for PC's that I support. I activated one which extended my supscription until May 2010.  I just learned onecare was going to be FREE in June. Did I just get scammed by Microsoft marketing?

  • One Care will not be free in June. After June 30th One Care will not be available for sale but will be fully supported through the end of 2010. Microsoft will be releasing a free stand alone antimalware product in the second half of 2009 but it is only an antimalware application and will not have the features of One Care such as a firewall, backup, tune up, multi PC management etc.
