  • That is correct. OneCare is not supported on Windows 7. OneCare is at end of life. See the announcements in the General forum.
    We are awaiting imminent release of Microsoft Security Essentials that will be a free antivirus solution from Microsoft using the same engine and definitions as OneCare. More details in the General forum. For now, install one of the other free solutions - Avast or Avira are both decent and work on Windows 7.
