    This is just great!!!!

    Just let me wonder why? Market monopol, agreements or others....so that's it the consumer has got the choice between antivirus internet security which either insert some superb snags in the PC either slow it down to a point that it has to be completely formated. Why on earth windows live one care isn't available in UAE???? Microsoft has got an office, here in Dubai and a big one actually...I am really disappointed....Onecare is working great on my PC without troubling the perormance of my PC....

     

    Thank you for the answer

  • I recommend contacting the Microsoft office in Dubai to ask why it isn't available, if you can. OneCare is only available in limited markets. It's my understanding that this is due partly to licensing/legal issues and also support capabilities.
