Adding OneCare to a new Laptop on our LAN. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to add Windows Live OneCare to a new Dell Laptop that I just connected to our Desktop on a LAN using ethernet cable and a Router hooked into a Modem from our DSL ISP.


    What is required to accomplish this?

  • Remove any other installed firewall (other than Windows firewall), virus and spyware protection from the new laptop.

    On the laptop, go to http://onecare.live.com to download and install OneCare.

    Once installed, open OneCare on the laptop and subscribe, signing in with the *same* LiveID used to activate/subscribe on the other PC. On the desktop PC, open OneCare, click on Help/About... to view the Subscription ID that you must use to activate/subscribe on the new PC.
