    After recently trying out the free beta of Windows One Care, I noticed a lag in internet connectivity and performance. I uninstalled the program. I still noticed a difference in connectiions to the internet. After reviewing some settings, I noticed that the windows Firewall was enabled and the off button was greyed out. It said the firewall was configured by group policy (which I never set up, and I am the sole user). I use Zone Alarm firewall and do not need two running. There is another post regarding group policy where the user also has One Care. I was able to resolve the firewall issue through a response to that post by changing group policy. Does anyone know what else One Care changes that does not revert after uninstall? I urge others to avoid this product. Thanks.

    Unfortunately I have system restore disabled. I just wondered if anyone else experienced problems after trying this program.
