Journal Henry V .009's Journal: Windows OneCare

I just installed Windows OneCare beta. It's very nice, and works well with limited user accounts. Only the administrator can let apps through the firewall, of course, but "Run As" makes that reasonably easy. (It'll be nice once Microsoft makes it easier for apps to ask for the admin password to do things like Macs and a lot of Linux distros do. On the other hand, Microsoft's way is probably more slightly more secure at the moment.)

The backup utility should come default with Windows, however. I haven't tried the OneCare method yet, but I wonder if you'll be able to restore data after canceling the service? I hope so.
