My NEW WIN 7 NETbook and my cool ONECARE virus Subscription WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY cant you make it WORK! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just paid for my Onecare subscription before i ran out and bought a new Netbook the day win7 came out YEAH ME!!!!!
    LOOK now thats nice to hear this and that after the fact, but when you got your money into a program you want it to WORK guys nobody cares that your phasing Onecare out, I didnt even know that until I bought my netbook. YOU SHOULD BE MADE TO LEGALY PUT A DISCLAIMER ON YOUR ONECARE SIGHT IN BIG BOLD TEXT!!!! will not work with new WINdows

    I think you'll like Jim's recommendation, MSE, even better for the netbook. ;-)
