Malware To Gain Free, New Enemy; OneCare on Borrowed Time
If you're bombarded with malware -- and I've gotten an earful
from many faithful Redmond Report readers -- free help from
Microsoft is on the way.
Excited? Sorry to bring you down, but the reality is this new free help won't
arrive for at
least a year.
I have no clue why Microsoft announced this so far in advance. Viruses and
other rogue code scum are a problem now! What should we do with this
information -- not use Trend Micro HouseCall (which I love) or defer re-subscribing
to McAfee or Symantec?
The good news is that it seems Microsoft will get rid of its problem-plagued
Live OneCare, a direct but less effective competitor to solid partners like
Trend, Symantec, McAfee, Sunbelt and others.
