Microsoft Set to Test Antivirus Service
Microsoft is seeking beta testers as it prepares to roll out a pre-release version of Windows OneCare, the company's comprehensive security package it announced in May. The beta program will run during the summer and will be followed by a wider public beta test later in the year.
Windows OneCare will run in the background, notifying users of updates and potential threats to their system, such as worms, viruses and spyware. OneCare will also automatically carry out PC maintenance and backups. Interested Windows users can apply now for the summer beta test by visiting Microsoft Beta using the Guest ID: OneCare.
