  • Microsoft Security Essentials provides malware protection only. I don't know of a security suite that provides all of the One Care features. Microsoft Security Essentials in conjunction with the Windows Firewall will provide superior protection. For the tune up feature of One Care you can schedule disc defragmenting and disc cleanup in Windows and depending on your version of Windows you can back up your files using Windows Backup.
