uninstalling Windows Live OneCare creates networking issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I try to uninstall Windows Live OneCare Trial Version, I am finding some network connection issues. I have to restore to the restorepoint before its uninstall to make it work again. I have tried three times after updating the latest updates from Windows but still finding the same issue. Now the Trial version is expired, I desperately want to uninstall that but it creates unnecessary network issues.

    Kindly help me in this regard as early as possible.

  • ame kinda problem that Riyas seems to have experienced...

    The Problem: After Uninstalling OneCare from my desktop running XP Professional (using the Uninstall button in OneCare), the desktop will not boot into a a given user profile - if a user profile is selected, the computer will attempt to load preferences then automatically go into a system restart.  Also lost internet connectivity...and can only use Safe Mode. 

    The Situation: OneCare expired - renewals are no longer available - Product has been discontinued.  As Recommended, I uninstalled OneCare to install Microsoft's Security Essentials

    How do I fix this glitch?
