Windows Live OneCare Team Blog: Download the OneCare Beta (v2.0) and let us know what you think!

See the full post for more details, e.g., on an option to use Windows Live Folders for photo backup. 

After months of listening to customer feedback on Windows Live OneCare (v1.5) and designing and testing new features and services for the product, we’re proud to unveil the first public beta release of the next version, Windows Live OneCare (2.0).  Windows Live OneCare 2.0 automatically manages an even greater number of security and maintenance tasks so users can spend more time using their PCs and less time maintaining them.  Sign up at http://get.live.com/betas/onecare_betas!

In the new version, our aim was to help consumers better manage their home environment.   Our research has shown that most homes now have approximately 2.5 computers.  This means that in addition to securing and maintaining multiple PCs, consumers now need to do the extra work associated with connecting devices and securing networks.  To ease this burden, we added to OneCare features such as multi-PC and home network management as well as printer sharing to help address the modern home environment.
