Post Microsoft plans new PC security service for June

Microsoft Corp. said on Tuesday it plans to launch a new computer security service in June, marking the world's biggest software maker's entry into the fast-growing consumer anti-virus market.

Microsoft's Windows OneCare Live, a subscription-based, self-updating service, will push the software giant into competition with consumer security providers Symantec Corp., McAfee Inc. and Trend Micro Inc.

The new security product represents one of Microsoft's first steps into its Web services strategy, which aims to deliver software and services over the Internet in competition with rivals Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc.
