Windows Microsoft's Live OneCare security software has failed tests which check how well it spots and stops malicious programs designed to attack Windows. OneCare was the only failure among 17 anti-virus programs tested by the AV Comparatives organisation. Microsoft's software only spotted 82.4% of the 500000 viruses that the independent group subjected it to. The test is the second in less than a month that Microsoft's anti-virus software has failed.

The title should not say "Windows Fails Second Virus test" but that "OneCare Fails Second Virus test" we all already know Windows is as robust against viruses as paper is against fire.
