    do to address this problem and run Windows OneCare? Same happens with

    Run chkdsk/f and reinstall.

    Since the programs were provided via download from Qwest, you should contact
    Qwest for support in getting both programs running.

    The Qwest OneCare solution was to send me here. I will try and run chkdsk/f
    and see how that goes.

    That was an unacceptable response from Qwest. They offer OneCare for free
    because they agree to provide support for the product. Windows Live Messenger,
    being free already, I can understand sending you here, but Windows Live OneCare
    is a subscription product that they must support.
    Please call them back to work on the OneCare problem.
