Friday, May 13, 2005 - Microsoft Plans Security Service For Computer Users - Microsoft Plans Security Service For Computer Users: "Microsoft Corp. said it plans to offer consumers a 'computer health' service this year as it seeks to protect its customers from an onslaught of computer viruses and other attacks, a move that will put the world's largest software maker in direct competition with smaller makers of security software.
Microsoft intends to charge an annual subscription fee for the service, which is designed to provide home-computer users with an easy way to maintain up-to-date antivirus, antispyware and firewall defenses. The service, Windows OneCare, will automatically perform certain personal-computer maintenance tasks such as backing up and recovering files."
