Windows Live OneCare Beta 1.5 supports Vista. Finally!

Onecarelivelogo_2Woe to all you Vista beta testers that never installed any anti-this and anti-that! A hex is cast up ye…up to now anyway. In the spirit of the upcoming Halloween holiday, Microsoft has lifted the OneCare curse upon Vista with the beta 1.5 version. I just received an e-mail invite for the Windows Live OneCare Beta (v1.5) and the good news is that Vista is supported.

You’ll need either XP or a Vista build greater than 5500 for the software to install and you’ll also have to reside in one of these countries because we all know that they’re the only ones to have viruses:

  • Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UK, US.

I’m installing shortly, so more is likely to follow and I’ll be looking for any major differences aside from the ".5" in the version number.
