Wow, no posts saying "THIS CRAP IS AS BAD AS NORTON AND MCAFEE" yet, what a surprise.

Anyways, I hope this is somewhat of an improvement over the last version.

The older version did pass VB100's June test (much to my surprise). I cannot link directly to the page because you have to be subscribed to the site but it shows this in the "Pass" catagory:

Result history: Microsoft OneCare
Product name: Microsoft Windows Live OneCare 1.5.1890.35
