I could be wrong but I believe that Microsoft is trying to phaze out One Care in favor of providing the free Microsoft Security Essentials

I have no idea, I do get a lot of people emailing me (thinking i'm MS ) saying they are having trouble renewing their sub, some people have even been known to send their credit card info in the emails.

Perhaps since you are Dr. Evil and Microsoft is considered evil...

...anyhow I thought I read a bit back that Microsoft was going to honor the subs but I never pursued it farther...

and lmao to the credit cards. You have found a way to steal their identity willingly!

They keep Microsoft's technical assistance in high esteem then...you won't find any level of Microsoft assistance on par with that this forum can provide

We are the best Windows 7 website in existence...
