Windows Live One Care

Windows Live One Care

Windows Live OneCare (previously known as Windows OneCare Live and formerly code named A1) was a computer security and performance enhancement service developed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows. A core technology of OneCare was the multi-platform RAV (Reliable Antivirus), which Microsoft purchased from GeCAD Software Srl in 2003, but subsequently discontinued. The software has been available as an annual paid subscription, which could be used on up to three computers.

On 18 November 2008, Microsoft announced that Windows Live OneCare would be discontinued on 30 June 2009 and will instead be offering users a new free anti-malware suite called Microsoft Security Essentials to be available before then. However, virus definitions and support for OneCare will continue until a subscription expires. In the end-of-life announcement, Microsoft noted that Windows Live OneCare would not be upgraded to work with Windows 7 and would also not work in Windows 7 XP Mode.
