OneCare, the anti-virus/tune-up/back-up all in one program, has just opened up a public beta of version 2.5 (current released version is 2.0.2500.22, on my machine, anyway). Anyone can go to Microsoft Connect and sign up and try the new beta, you don’t need to be signed in to get to the page:
Looks like there’s quite a list of countries available, no US only this time. Not sure what the changes are from the released version, and there’s no information about changes on the public Connect site.
(thanks for the tip)
