Security gripes? Microsoft feels your pain

It's not news to Microsoft that many, if not most, average Windows
users have gripes about their PC experiences.

In response, the software company is unveiling on Friday a new
subscription-based computer fix-it service, aimed at automatically
patching security holes, blocking viruses and spyware, and generally
automating the chores of maintaining a computer's health.

Dubbed Windows OneCare, the service will draw in part on existing
tools like the company's anti-spyware software, as well as on basic PC
management functions inside Windows. But it will add a more powerful
firewall, ongoing antivirus protection, and the right to get a live
support person on the phone without paying extra, the company said.


And what exactly is a dream?
And what exactly is a joke?
