The trial period is coming to an end, and it's time to either move on or pony up the $20 to continue using it. I've read a number of posts about it, but most of those were related to specific issues or technical problems. I'm looking for the broad overview of people's opinions about Live OneCare.
Previously, I cobbled together a few free products to meet my needs: Sygate Personal Firewall (to which support has been discontinued), antivirus software from an old company I worked for, and Ad Aware and Spybot for spyware. I really like the idea of consolidating these services into one central product. I've had few issues with it, but I got extremely quick response and detailed assistance when I emailed in for help.
Right now I'm leaning toward paying the $20 for the first year just to further evaluate, then re-examining the issue in a year. But I'm curious to hear what others think. Is it worth it? Is it effective? If not, what are the best alternatives?
