It came last in an antivirus test so I read at a slightly more popular site than osnn.

Windows defender has the same flaws also.

I dont think that makes it any better , the fact that they want to enter this game means they need to research and put out a better product , the sheer size of Microsoft Corp means they dont have any valid excuse for such poor perfromance.

The product has come a long way since I first started with the early betas. The latest version, 1.5, offers a lot of features that tie in nicely with the operating system. I've been included on both betas and I stand behind the product. Sure, there is room for improvement. But as I said, you have to start from some where.

I rather liked One Care personally, it integrated nicely and I did not have any virus/malware problems in all the time I Beta tested it.

I uninstalled windows defender some months back, it caused far too many problems.

System works far better now.

At least Microsoft has acknowledged problems with the detection rate and will be making improvements. WOC 2.0 will also be a nice update.

I can't believe this surprises anyone. Microsoft can't secure their OS, what would make you think they could write a security suite?

I can show you quite a few that don't run as administrator by default and don't have tons of unnecessary network services listening on open ports out of the box.

Well Vista does not run on Administrator by default

I will take your answer as no then you cannot show me an OS that does not need patches and updates

True but its not like the world is not aware that you need to update your OS no matter who makes it, Its funny how no one bothers to bash Linux its just not worth bashing I guess, When you need to point out the so called short comings all the time its because you feel threatened and inferior .

Keep in mind that I'm not presenting anything there as facts; I'm just interested in hearing opinions.
And keep it clean, please. :)
