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.

It is not allowed to publish benchmarks of SQL Server, etc., so I am surprised if it is allowed under Microsoft EULA to publish any comparison results of OneCare with competitive products.
