Live OneCare still around

As far as I know, Live OneCare is still around (I am using it).

http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/3/default.htm

Also, this Ars Technica article (http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2009/09/first-look-microsoft-...)claims that MS will be pushing Live OneCare upon installation instead of MSSE to avoid antitrust problems.

Should I discontinue subscribing to Live OneCare and switch to MSSE?

I’m going to be ditching AVG and installing MSE on my customer’s computers to see how well it holds up for regular use and abuse. I install probably ~1000 copies of AVG a year, if not more. If things go good or bad with MSE, I’ll write a follow-up article in a month detailing my findings. My own personal use of the product doesn’t really put it to the test in real life scenarios.

There is no reference in the Ars article regarding MS pushing Live One Care after you install MSE. You are misreading.

The fact is that Live One Care will go away and MSE is the one to stay.
