    Windows OneCare

    Has anyone tried this yet? Is it as robust and good at catching nasties as the existing firewall, AV & anti spyware packages out there?

    I tried this and it seemed bobbins. Kept pestering me and didn't really do anything that other software that I already had did just as well.

    Scrapped it after a couple of weeks.

    I didn't attempt to try it on a domain machine!
