Microsoft will be bringing new programs to add protection for user who use their operating systems. Morro was named to be the successor of OneCare to be offered free on the 2nd half of 2009.
Code-named “Morro,” this streamlined solution will provide comprehensive protection from malware including viruses, spyware, rootkits and trojans.
Windows first offered free firewall on Windows 95 OSR2 then later bundled Defender on Vista. With Morro, Microsoft expect that its current operating system Windows XP and Vista will be more secured. Microsoft is also planning to bundle Morro with Internet Explorer 8.
Microsoft will discontinue the OneCare subscription service June 30, 2009, but customers will still be able to download updates until their subscriptions end.
