Microsoft's Live OneCare security software has failed tests which check how well it spots and stops malicious programs designed to attack Windows.

OneCare was the only failure among 17 anti-virus programs tested by the AV Comparatives organisation.

Kaled.

Yikes.
That's probably why I recommend NOD32.

I can under$tand why Micro$oft might want to $ell/provide anti-viru$ $oftware, but IMHO I think they should focus on their core products and do their best on them, not try to do everything. Personally I have more trust in other anti-virus products. I get a free copy of Symantec anti-virus through work, so I use that. Yeah, I know it isn't perfect either.
