Microsoft has released Windows Live OneCare, its security suite, for $49.95 per year.
The service offers complete “top-to-bottom maintenance, support and performance optimization” CEO and chief software architect Bill Gates said yesterday. Beta versions of the package have been tested with close to 200,000 users.
The final version comes with a 90-day free trial offer. The service is most certain to find welcome buyers because it offers anti-virus protection, anti-spyware, firewall, file backups, PC tune-ups and free support.
