Windows Live OneCare 2.0 in Beta
Microsoft has released a beta version of Windows Live OneCare 2.0, its anti-malware and maintenance software. The update adds support for monitoring the status of other PCs on a network, as well as a new firewall that adjusts its settings automatically depending on the security of the network.
OneCare 2.0 can also perform PC maintenance tasks, including clearing a jammed print job and listing what applications are causing a system to be slow to boot up. 64-bit compatibility is new in version 2.0 as well. Windows Live OneCare is offered as a subscription service for a yearly rate of $49.95 USD, which covers up to three PCs in a home.
