Ive been using windows one care on my pc for the last 9 months, it was recomended to me by our I.T guy at work, before that i used norton. Ive never had a problem, but recently the pc i gave to my parents got a virus and they were using live one care also. We both use XP proffesional. My first question is, has anyone who uses it had any problems and what you think of it?
2nd. What do you think is the best antivirus software available?

it's better than Norton....as I'm sure everyone will agree.

Do you have anything against running something free like AVG/Avast for antivirus, then spybot/adaware/malwarebytes/superantispyware for spyware cleaning? It's free.....and prob use up much less resources.

One care works fine, where was the virus located?

The general consensus is that it does a good job, but is on the lower end of some of the other paid solutions in terms of effectiveness. There are a few free tools that are a better solution.

Avast or Avira
Spybot S&D
Hijackthis
The system internals suite of tools

These are a good start, and surpass the functionality and effectiveness of One care.

thanks, do you mean for me to use these as well as one care or get rid of one care completely and just use those?

What I listed would be a complete, and better replacement for one care.

Sounds like what Trend started doing last year (would refuse to install unless you removed pretty much every other security app on your system).

To me, that's grounds to give it a complete miss. Sorry, but no single internet security product is capable of keeping your system clean all by itself.
