OneCare Did not detect/prevent malware installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Received a pop-up from OneCare on a suspect file.  I clicked "block application".  Then received a pop-up from Personal Anti-virus malware.  PAV proceeded to install, even though I continued to click "block" whenever a pop-up appeared.   I ran a OneCare virus scan which did not detect the PAV malware.  I used a second computer to confirm that it was malware and find the Windows Security center.   Ran the Windows Live Security Scan, which successfully detected and removed the malware.  Why did the OneCare scan not detect and block the malware?
