Microsoft betas Anti Virus software
Windows OneCare is a comprehensive PC health service that goes beyond security to take an integrated approach to help protect and care for your computer. The Windows OneCare health meter gives you a clear, continuous indication of your computer's overall level of protection and performance. If Windows OneCare detects anything that you can do to improve the health of your computer, the service will automatically show you what action to take and give you a one-click solution. It has an Antivirus and Firewall which helps protect your computer from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, hackers, and other threats. However, Windows OneCare Live doesn't work alongside Symantec, McAfee, or Trend Micro products. OneCare is mostly built on software from a Romanian security firm GeCAD. It uses both signature and heuristic or behavioral approaches. Like Norton it comes with a firewall, offering bi-directional monitoring and blocking and has a monthly update service.
