One Care and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and it told me ti UNINSTALL WLOC before upgrading? It also said that the current version of WLOC is NOT supported by Win7? My question is this - my subscription to WLOC runs through 1/2010. What do I need to do in install Win7 correctly with my current subscription to WLOC?

  • One Care cannot be installed on Windows 7 and must be uninstalled before upgrading. A free antimalware application called Microsoft Security Essentials should be available for download around the release date of Windows 7.

  • Your subscription is still active, but if you are using Windows 7, go get the new, free Microsoft Security Essentials - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ 
    It does not have the extra features of OneCare, but it is the replacement for the antivirus/antispyware protection of OneCare.
