Windows Live Safety Center

Microsoft in conjunction with it’s “Live” initiative has added a new Computer Safety Site.

(The following is from their site)

“Windows Live Safety Center is a new, free service designed to help ensure the health of your PC.

-Check for and remove viruses (Virus Scan)
-Learn about threats (Port Scan)
-Improve your PC’s performance (defrag)
-Get rid of junk on your hard disk (cleanmgr)

Use the full service scan to check everything, or turn to the scanners and information in the service centers to meet your specific needs.”

Service is in beta. The scan is slow but does a fair job. Require’s IE6 (big surprise) and downloading an ActiveX control.
