Windows ‘fails’ active virus test

“Live OneCare caught 99.91% of the known active viruses it was tested against. This left it vulnerable to 37 separate malicious programs.”

“Version 1.5 of Windows Live OneCare was co-launched with Vista and uses the same scanning “engine” as the security tools bundled with the operating system.”

I had always planned on waiting a good while (6 months minimum) before upgrading to Vista. This news has made me think about lenghtening that time before even thinking about upgrading!
