Microsoft is to deliver an all-in-one PC health check service targeted at consumers. Windows OneCare will offer performance tuning, PC maintenance, backup and security functions via a consumer subscription service.
Key capabilities and features of Windows OneCare will include: providing automatically updated anti-virus, anti-spyware and two-way firewall protection. Windows OneCare can also automatically carry out periodic maintenance tasks such as disk cleanup, hard-drive defragmentation and file repair, options that already come as standard with Windows. "
