Uninstall other software security programs
Windows Live OneCare for Server might not run, or it might slow the performance of your server, if you install it when other antivirus programs (or firewall programs that were not bundled with Windows Server) are also installed. During setup, OneCare for Server checks for common antivirus programs (and for firewall programs not bundled with Windows Server) that are known to conflict with Windows Live OneCare for Server, and gives you the option to uninstall them.

Installation Tips
  • Before you install Windows Live OneCare for Server, we strongly recommend you uninstall any previous version of OneCare for Server on your server.
  • If other antivirus programs were previously installed, before you can successfully install Windows Live OneCare for Server, you may need to run a clean-up tool after you uninstall the antivirus program. It may run automatically; visit the website of the antivirus program’s manufacturer to find their clean up tool.
  • To avoid putting your server at risk, do not remove pre-existing antivirus software until you are ready to install Windows Live OneCare for Server.
