When I can install v2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two machines on v1.6 and a third running the 2.0 Beta.  I got the e-mail offering the special pricing of 19.95.  But I already have a paid subscription.  Do I have pay again for 2.0??  And is ok, to install 2.0 on my other machines now using that link provided in the e-mail or should I wait until it's released to receive the update??  Thanks.

  • You subscribed version on the 2 computers that are at 1.6 should update to 2.0 automatically soon. Depending on how much time you have left on the subscription will be the decision point as to using the beta 19.95 offer or not. If you current subscription will expire in the next few months, you can take advantage of the offer by uninstalling the beta and going to the link in the email. Sign in with a different LiveID than the one your are currently subscribed with. If you need a new LiveID go to http://account.live.com first. Provide payment information and download the special installer that installs OneCare once for that new account. You will have two different accounts. Before the original account expires, contact support to cancel the account if it is an auto-renew account. Then, uninstall and reinstall OneCare from http://onecare.live.com with the new account LiveID on the other two machines. Their subscriptions will end with the first machine's.

    If your subscription is not due to end for 6 months or longer, then simply ignore the offer unless you want a second subscription, uninstall the beta and reinstall OneCare from the main site and activate it with your original LiveID.
