Re: Windows Live OneCare Question
Hi,
I'm sure that Live OneCare detects some types of rootkits, however it
doesn't have a specific "anti-rootkit" module. Generally, rootkits are
really hard to detect, let alone remove and security products like
anti-viruses are lousy at detecting them. They do detect (sometimes) the
malware that tries to install the rootkit, but after the rootkit is
installed, you are pretty much 0wned.

RE: Windows Live OneCare Question
Below are 3 good security programs, which will solve a lot of your worries.

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program that runs
in the background (no scanning by you!).
SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of many so-called spyware, adware
and malware programs by disabling the CLSIDs of popular spyware ActiveX
controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage
Update it once a fortnight, and let it do its work in the background!

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
For the Free version scroll down their page to either download from
Download.com, or Major Geeks.com

Download, install, and update.
