    The public forums for OneCare are here:

    We've had some reports of OneCare and Vista Security center not being in touch.
    I don't know why this happens, but apparently the "no a/v scanner" is also
    reported by users of other a/v products.
    When you install OneCare, it turns off Defender and the Vista Firewall. All
    protection is then managed through the OneCare interface. If your OneCare status
    is green, all protection is enabled. Open the Security Center in Vista and
    change it so that it no longer monitors and reports the status of a/v software
    as OneCare is taking care of this for you. That's the workaround at this point.
