Windows Live oneCare Review

I stumbled upon this site this morning which gives an objective review of Windows Live oneCare. From Paul Thurott's Supersite for Windows:

I really like Windows Live OneCare and though it lacks a single important feature I feel is absolutely essential for some people, it does go well beyond competing security suites by tackling non-malware-related problems that affect over PC health, including PC performance. If you're using an email service that provides extensive anti-spam and antivirus filtering, OneCare is a no-brainer: It's reasonably inexpensive, can be installed on multiple PCs in your home, and provides virtually every PC health feature anyone would want for a home PC. Because it's configured as a centrally-managed, automatic service, it's always up-to-date and can be updated with new features and functionality as-needed. My understanding is that Symantec and McAfee are racing to ship product suites that compete more closely with OneCare. I'm not surprised. With OneCare, Microsoft has looked past standard anti-malware functionality and come up with a more complete PC health solution. Highly recommended.
