Windows Live Safety Center: Better than beta
Apart from the name change, Life Safety Center is now called Windows Live OneCare safety scanner, it not beta
anymore. For those who still don't know, it a free on-demand tool that has three different types of scans:
- Protection Scan checks for and removes things like viruses and malware.
- Clean-up Scan checks the hard disk for unnecessary files and helps users decide which ones they can safely delete. It also clears the PC’s registry of left over data.
- Tune-up Scan helps improve the PC’s performance by defragmenting the hard drive.
Other good news is that Windows Live OneCare is going International
! At the end of the year Windows Live OneCare, or sooner, will have international beta's available for the following markets: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK.
I'm lucky because I'm running a US-English operating system myself and just ordered a copy of Windows Live OneCare in the USA and it's running very nicely on three of my computers.
