    But I am unable to find any links to purchase it from microsoft.com/japan or jp.msn.com.


    Where can I purchase it in Japan?

    Is it possible to purchase the English version for use in Japan.


    Thanks for your time and expertise...

  • In order to purchase a subscription or activate using a retail key while physically located in Japan, you will need to set the Internet Explorer default language to Japanese - Japan. Once you have activated, you can switch it back to the language of your choice.

    You don't purchase it before download. You install the trial - http://onecare.live.com and then activate/subscribe from within OneCare or activate with a retail key from a box copy purchased from a retailer.
