Windows 7: Microsoft security product confusion to continue.

Microsoft security product confusion to continue.

Microsoft security product confusion to continue till 2011.

One of our readers recently wrote in to ask about the difference between Windows Live OneCare and Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE). We explained that OneCare has been on its way out the door since Microsoft announced the for-pay solution's death in November 2008. The company also noted in March 2009 that Windows 7 would not play nice with OneCare. Sales of the Windows Live OneCare subscription service, as well as Windows Live OneCare for Server on SBS 2008, ended on June 30, 2009. The software giant's replacement offering, Microsoft Security Essentials, was released in September 2009. In short, MSE was what our reader wanted. The question forced us to look into OneCare again, and we were a little perplexed at what we found.
