Microsoft seem to have their fingers in many different areas. For instance, their free Windows Defender is their attempt at releasing an anti-spyware suite. However, this wasn't originally developed by Microsoft, it was purchased and re-branded as a Microsoft product. It works well, it's free, so we can't complain.
They've now gone one stage further and are offering a complete all-in-one PC protection and maintenance suite which contains Windows Defender, AntiVirus application, a Firewall, tool that will give your computer a performance tune-up and tools that enable you to backup and restore your important files and data.
Although the software resides on your computer, you need to go through a long-winded online procedure - using only Internet Explorer (groan) - to download the application. You can download a 90-day trial immediately and there's also a free online scan. For more information, check the Windows OneCare website.
