Lou, personally I've never found One Care to be much good. I've beta tested
a couple of versions and have been disappointed with it. One of the main
hang up's was updating which still is an hit and miss issue. Many people
also tend to panic when One Care turns off the Windows firewall, little
realising that One Care has its own firewall.
When asked about Anti Virus/Firewall/Anti Spyware I usually steer people to
AVG, Zone alarm (although the windows firewall is fine) and, of course,
Windows Defender (which is already installed on Vista). While I still use
the Windows Firewall and Defender, Anti Virus is covered by Sophos
Enterprise Anti Virus. Sophos, however, is an expensive anti virus solution,
but it's one that works extremely well.
