Windows Live OneCare Problem

Windows Security Center was showing me the following error when I woke up this morning along with my Malware Protection having a “yellow light” rather than green.

Windows live OneCare is on but is reporting its status to Windows Security Center in a format that is no longer supported.  Use the program’s automatic updating feature, or contact the program manufacturer for an updated version.

Thanks to Kevin Hau for His Post about a fix that has been released for this issue.  I have included the 32 bit and 64 bit links here as well.  This was a quick and simple fix that worked great.  As Kevin points out, you will need to download the exe and Run it as Administrator.

32 bit fix:
