I'd like some opinions about Windows Live OneCare as a secondary scan
tool/spyware removal tool.

I'm a bit suspicious of anything free from Mr.Gates.

Thanks.

You need the Feb update for it, to close the pdf-code-injection
exploit in it.
That should give you some idea how good it is. Not that other
antivirus programs haven't suffered from exploits.

Re: Windows Live OneCare

I use it since a while as I have tested the beta versions of this tool.

IMHO, it is useful to clean the registry and to verify open ports.

Otherwise it is not too bad in comparison to the other tools on the market.

My main reproach will be that it cleans virus / spyware / malicious code
without requesting the consent of the user and without quarantining. This is
very disagreeable in case of false positive (I had to re-install 2
applications).
