  • Jamie Plate,


    What type of Antivirus protector are you using? Did you know that OneCare also has it's own anti-virus component?


    Having more than one antispyware program may cause the computer to become unstable, or see an increase in performance activity.  Therefore you might want to stick with one antispyware program. The OneCare antispyware program as it is an excellent tool for steering clear of spyware.


    If you're using another antispyware program with OneCare, we recommend that you disable real-time scanning in the other program.

  • Jamie, are you saying that OneCare has not successfully installed, despite the removal of your prior protection?
