Windows Live Safety Center Now Online
As one of the new Windows Live services, Microsoft has brought online a beta version of its "Safety Center" that does Web based scans of a PC. The Safety Center utilizes an Active X control to check for and removes viruses, clean up the "junk" on a hard disk, and even schedule a disk defragmentation if needed.
"Use the full service scan to check everything, or turn to the scanners and information in the service centers to meet your specific needs," Microsoft says. The company warns, however, that Windows Live Safety Center is still in beta, and has setup a Web log to obtain feedback from users.
