About OneCare Activation Impossible from CH - Microsoft onecare ENG
international shipping

Hello,

In May our family got each(4) a computer, and I did straight on install on
them the trial version of One care (best of all antiviruses for my tase and
experience); with intend to update on begining of August (then 12 days left)
by buying 2 of these, in ENGLISH from Switzerland/zuerich...>>>

How can this be that Microsoft products cannot be bought in ENG-and $, from
Switzerland ???
Now in MediaMarkt-shop, they try getting it in ENG, but they are not sure if
they can!!!

Now there are 3 days left for our trial version; how can we be helped in
such software-problem ...which has nothing to do with software?!

Tanks for help

Noyhing is impossible.


Both your taste and experience seem small in range.


All this doesn't make much sense, I am afraid.


What's that supposed to mean? (No need to respond).

Here is what I suggest you do:
1. Uninstall WLOC
To uninstall Windows Live OneCare from Vista:
Click the Vista Orb, then click Control Panel.
Click Programs and Features.
In the Uninstall or change a program list, click Windows Live OneCare, and
proceed with the uninstall.

Note that part of the uninstall will ask you to provide a reason for
removing OneCare.

If Windows Live OneCare does not uninstall as expected, download the
Windows Live OneCare cleanup utility -
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
and follow the program instructions to completely uninstall.

Note
You will be prompted to restart your computer. You must restart your
computer in order to completely uninstall Windows Live OneCare.

2. Turn Windows Firewall on.

3. Get yourself a good quality Anti-Virus application.
Avira AntiVirPersonal - FREE Antivirus

4. Get yourself several Anti-Spy applications.
SuperAntispyware - Free
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
--and--
Ad-Aware 2007 - Free
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
--and--
Spybot Search & Destroy - Free
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
--and--
Windows Defender - Free (*build-in in Vista*)

5. Use Windows to back up your computer

6. Disk Defragmentation Tool
The Disk Defragmenter cann be found in All Programs, Accessories, System
Tools.

7. Routinely practice Safe-Hex.

Good luck :-)

Assuming you have a LiveID have you posted in
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
which is a well moderated forum.

Tom is right, the WLOC forum is the place to post for OC problems.
Steve, Jim, and other MVPs do not get paid for moderating that forum but
are there because they want to help other OC users.

All you get in this newsgroup is "cut and paste" answers from some
so-called experts here.

I fail to see why having my specs in my sig has anything to do with what was
discussed here. FYI I posted this via a forum which encourages putting your
hardware info into your sig to better answer your questions. Right now I
am using Windows Mail to post so no specs.

Believe me, I have no ego to bruise.
