    Microsoft should change the name of this product to "Windows Live TotalCrap". It would be a lot more accurate.

    Actually it is good. I have it on Vista and it works fast and perfect. Don't listen to those people who hates Microsft.

    Some people probably like all-in-one. Less clutter in the system tray.

    The comparison at http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2007_02.php
    shows that Microsoft Onecare at the very bottom.

    Avast has everything that you would want running continuously (antivirus, firewall, popup blocker, etc)

    Some/most broadband (dsl/cable) comes with this stuff included in the price.

    Other things like adware removers you do not want running constantly anyways.

    because it is microsoft, I expected it to really slow your computer. $50 per year is expensive. If you get this you will have to remove it in 90 days, or pay...what a pain

    #3 how much memory do you have on your vista computer?
    what I object to is companies selling computers with 512 mb with vista...when it needs 2gb to run right.
