Renewing yearly Live onecare service. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This will be my 3rd year with Live One care effective 15 May 09.  I've been made aware of the 18 Nov 08 memo where Live One will cease in it's current format.  That provides me with two months of current form of service.  I'm aware of the Microsoft pledge to provide support to the end of any current subscription, but 10 months is a long timeframe for a What If scenario.
    Which brings me to the next question:  Microsoft's annual cost is $49.95 BUT Amazon.com has the same product. 2.0 version for $24.99.  So, does Microsoft offer the same price comparison??

      Thank You

  • You will actually have the same service for a full year. One Care will be fully supported and updated through the end of 2010, it just will not be available for retail purchase after June 30, 2009. You can purchase a retail copy of One Care and use the product key to renew your current subscription.
