Windows Live OneCare backup

2957 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Coolfreak
I have tried Windows Live help, Microsoft Help and Support, and conducted a Google search in a effort to find a method to permanently delete Windows Live OneCare from my external hard drive. My account with Windows Live OneCare expired so I delete the application program but cannot delete the back up.

The back up is huge (multible GBs) so space I could use for other purposes. In addition when I run an anti-spy or anti-virus program it extends the time signficantly.

Can anyone advise me in detail (step by step) on how to delete the Windows Live OneCare back up?
