    I got the Windows 7 upgrade for three computers. I have Windows Live One Care one all three of them. Tof of them are laptops and one is a desk top. Mine is the first one that I want to install Windows 7 on, since I will be installing it on all three. During the pre install Windows 7 wants me to uninstall Windows Live One Care. I don't want to since That is my back up and has been for the past three years and it should be compatible since it is a Windows program. I thought about doing a clean install on the partition that I have Windows on on my laptop but Windows doesn't seem to want to install on that partition. I have Compaq Presario C 500 32 bit operating system running Vista home Premium 2 Service Pack 2. It has two drives partitioned C: is 87G and I still have 40 G free and D: is 5.81 G is where Windows is located. If Live One Care is on C: Why would Windows 7 want it removed? Windows 7 needs to be on D where Vista is now. Over the three years I've had this laptop I've never had to reformat this hard drive.

    The D drive is very small to install Windows 7

    Windows Live One Care has been discontinued: http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/default.htm

    Windows Live One Care IS discontinued as mentioned, but also does not work with Win 7 - at least according to the Win 7 upgrade advisor.
