OneCare 2.0 ships next week

Posted by David Hunter at 6:59 PM ET.

Version 2.0 of Microsoft’s troubled OneCare personal antivirus software is due to ship next week according to Robert McMillan at Infoworld. You may recall that OneCare got off to a great start last year with help from its lowball pricing, but a embarrassing variety of glitches cropped up including a relative inability to actually detect viruses compared to competitors’ products.

Microsoft says they have been making incremental improvements in virus detection which is good news for existing customers (and customers of Microsoft’s Forefront security products for businesses which use the same detection engine), but it’s not clear that bolting on a variety of new but extraneous features in version 2.0 is going help OneCare turn the corner.

Update: It turns out that OneCare 2.0 was made available on November 15.
