Microsoft security tools go global


The Windows Live OneCare safety scanner is now available around the world, Microsoft said in a statement Monday. The online scanner removes viruses and spyware, rids a hard drive of clutter, and runs defragmentation.

The service is similar to Trend Micro's House Call and McAfee's FreeScan, though those only remove malicious software.

The international launch is a precursor to a broader release of Windows Live OneCare. Microsoft security tools go global | CNET News.com
