Scan Your Windows PC Now With Live Safety Center
The Windows OneCare team has announced the public availability of the beta of Windows OneCare Live, a comprehensive PC health service for consumers, which offers an integrated approach to help consumers protect and care for their computers.

The Beta was restricted to US residents only, until recently. Now anyone can enter the program - it is free, but for a limited time. Microsoft plans to make this a fee-based service in the future.

Windows OneCare Live will offer regular virus scanning as well as continuous protection against the latest virus threats. Windows OneCare Live also includes a two way firewall, a performance tune up wizard, automated backup and more.

Also being introduced is an online, on-demand virus scanner as part of Windows Live Safety Center beta.

The Microsoft Security team has also announced an update to the current Windows AntiSpyware beta to extend the expiration date to 31 July 2006. The update should be automatic to anyone running the software.
