  •  

    I recently purchased windows onecare. I also subscribe to microsofts IP web address provider which provides virus and firewall protection from MAC afee. when I try to install the windows onecare it requests that I remove my existing virus and firewall protection. My question is if I remove the existing protection and replace with the onecare protection will I have to pay more for it when my year subscription is expired. But I will still be using microsoft as my IP service provider.

  • Yes. OneCare is a 12 month subscription service, so at the end of the 12 month period you will have to pay for renewal. You can use a retail product key to renew, or a credit card.

  • You can certainly continue to use what is provided with your MSN subscription, but then you cannot also install OneCare as they will conflict and cause problems.
