Yoav on OneCare blog —”if you are already a OneCare subscriber (or have an active free trial), you will automatically be upgraded in the next few days. And if you are a current subscriber, but decided to join the v1.5 beta anyway, you'll need to uninstall the beta and reinstall OneCare from http://onecare.live.com. By reinstalling the product, and reactivating the service with your existing subscription (by entering in your LiveID when "adding a PC to existing subscription") you will automatically receive OneCare v1.5 and won't need to purchase a new subscription. Also note that the process of uninstalling the beta and installing the upgrade will not count against your 3 PC subscription limit.”
