Microsoft to overhaul Windows Live OneCare

By Justin Mann on November 14, 2007, 1:33 PM
Microsoft's OneCare is set to receive a significant update next week, according to several sources. Since its public release earlier this year, Microsoft has touted OneCare as a viable solution for both home and small offices needing to take care of multiple Windows machines.

Unfortunately for Microsoft, they've faced adoption issues with OneCare. It has not sold well, and is dwarfed by other competing suites from companies like Symantec and Trend Micro. Perhaps the update will address such issues, though it still seems that OneCare is out of place.

Microsoft is stretching themselves awful thin with the last few years endeavors, including a most recent rumor that they are planing to compete with Flickr. As they expand Windows Live, seemingly much faster than it should be, it seems they are trying to hype and sell more than people can take. Is there any market they could leave well enough alone?
