The dynamic nature of technology can sometimes make the protection and management of PCs a challenge. The majority of consumers and small businesses today are using PCs without basic protection technologies such as anti-virus and anti-spyware software, or if they have these protections they are not keeping them up to date. Many are also not performing basic maintenance and performance-enhancing tasks, such as disk defragmentation, or are risking the loss of documents or photos because they are not backing up those important files.

Consumers and small businesses today require a simple yet comprehensive solution to help keep their PCs healthy. To help meet this need, Microsoft Corp. introduced Windows Live OneCare in 2006 to provide a comprehensive, automatic and self-updating PC care service so consumers can have greater peace of mind about protecting and maintaining their PCs.

Microsoft recently unveiled new features to help consumers better manage their home environment. Microsoft internal research has shown that most homes now have at least two computers. This means that in addition to managing PC security and maintenance, consumers most likely now need to do the extra work associated with connecting devices and securing networks. To further redefine and extend the concept of PC care, Microsoft added features to Windows Live OneCare such as multi-PC and home-network management, as well as printer sharing, to help address the modern home environment. In addition, this new version establishes a foundation to better address the needs of small businesses that must protect and maintain a number of PCs but may not have the resources for extensive on-site IT support. To help solve this problem, Microsoft added centralized data backup to OneCare, so local backup on a small-business network is a simple step instead of a time-consuming hassle.
