Last month of Windows Live OneCare subscription; Status: Fair RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • It is the last month of my Windows Live OneCare subscription and the status shows "Fair". I do not think it is logical for the remaining subscription time to affect computer’s protection status. Aren’t these two things unrelated? It can be the last day of my subscription but my computer still can have all the updates installed and have the latest anti-virus and firewall and hence the subscription should be "Good" until the very end of the subscription.

  • Unfortunately, the fair status when you are within 30 days of expiration can't be changed unless you renew. I just went through the very same thing yesterday on my PC. Once I renewed, the staus went back to green. This has always been the case with OneCare - the warning is that you might forget to renew, hence the staus is fair.
