This past weekend, I started looking at some of the different ways Microsoft is working on improving your experience with your computer. I featured initial looks at OneCare, Windows Defender, and yesterday on the affects of spam.
For my next trick, a general look at securing your PC through Windows Live Safety Center, a new, free service (in beta) designed to help ensure the health of your PC.
On the site, you can run a service scan that will check for and remove viruses on your computer, improve your PC's performance and help to get rid of junk on your hard disk. You can run a full service scan to check everything, or target the services to meet your specific needs (to protect, clean up or tune up your PC).
Reminds me of the old Adam-12 TV series, where the motto "to protect and to serve" was prominently featured. I wonder if Scott Charney or Mike Nash were ever extras in an episode...
