question on using this with comcast

i use comcast xfinity cable and they tell me i can get norton antivirus  for free as long as i have comcast. my question is this,  what norton system does the comcast user get, and just how good is it for the comcast users? is it worth getting? i now use avast free and ccleaner free and malwarebytes free as the win10 forum guys told me a few years ago that was better. but i'm thinking these are starting to slow down my system and maybe getting just one program would be better. so as long as comcast provides security for free i might as well sue it. but is the system that comcast gives us for free really worth getting. thanks

See the instructions in ComcastJessie's NEW: Norton Security Online and How To Get It? that's currently pinned at the top of the Anti-Virus Software & Internet Security board of the Comcast / Xfinity forum.

Re: question on using this with comcast

All: One thing to note is that the Comcast version initial install will be a very old version of Norton which will require several live update sessions and patch installs with reboots to bring to the current version. In the case of corvairbob my recommendation is removing ALL the other malware software on his system PRIOR to installation of Norton to prevent conflicts. More than one A/V solution (AVG) will cause conflicts and system degradation.  He can reinstall MBAM after Norton is completely installed which should be sufficient protection along side Norton.

Re: question on using this with comcast

@corvairbob,

Norton Security Online (NSO) is the name of the product offered for free by Comcast.  It is a "clone" of the retail Norton Security Deluxe product, which is being suggested on the Norton product lineup as being replaced by Norton 360 Deluxe.

The NSO in it's current configuration, does not provide any online backup. 

VPN, Safe Cam and Dark Web Monitoring are not included in NSO, nor were they included the retail version of Norton Security Deluxe.

As SoulAsylum mentioned, the current download of NSO from Comcast is an older version, which is updatable to the current version (22.19.9.63) of NSO - but still short of the additions that Norton 360 Deluxe adds.

I have asked the question to the admins of the Norton Forum and am awaiting a definite answer, but if past practices continue, the Comcast NSO should be upgraded to a clone of Norton 360 Deluxe in the future.  No time frame is ever given out by Norton, so us users just have to be patient in waiting for the added features of Norton 360 to appear in the Comcast version.

As bjm mentioned, there is a link on the Comcast Forums that explains how to get the free current NSO version:

Re: question on using this with comcast

thanks yank.  how did you like that corvair? must not have like the girl or i think you may have said my wife drove a corvair back in 64.  i drove one back in that time 63 or 64 maybe even 65. anyway i got my present one back in 95 

but back to the topic do you think this nso from norton would be better than having avast, malwarebytes,bitdefender, ccleaner, spybot all running now on my system? on the win10 forums they think running all these free programs are better than running just one regular av program. and if comcast is telling me i can run this for free can i feel safe online and banking. etc.

i have no desire to surf the dark web but i asked as a point of interest if someone had this nso program and would feel safe going on the darkweb. it sounds like in order to try that i would need more programs to be safe. not interested there, but i do want to be safe for hackers and scammers sending malware of any kind thru email and such. bowser attackers and such. so the win10 forums say with all these program i have i'm safe. so far that has proved ok but maybe having just one program to manage will be lots easier. thanks

Re: question on using this with comcast

ok i just installed norton security thru comcast. it did a lot of stuff and restarted. now i have to learn the password manager for one. avast had that an i did not like it but maybe nortons is better. now i will run a scan and see if norton finds anything avast passed by. so far it did not find anything. now to see how much better my system runs. if it gives me fits i will go back.  now to lear the password manager. i may have to turn that off and let google manage them as before.

Re: question on using this with comcast

now this is what i'm seeing  i installed norton that comcast gives me and set it up but it did not remove avast or adaware or ccleaner or spybot. so do i need to now go in and remove these? and if so what ones should i remove and what ones should i leave? any ideas here? avast is still on my pc but when i try to run it it will not start so norton somehow disabled it but in msconfig i see it is still there as a startup program.

so can anyone that has comcast's version of the norton av tell me what other program to leave or remove. this what i had
avast may be disabled but still there in msconfig running
avast secure browser stopped

malwarebytes service running
bitlocker stopped

Hopefully this will assist you.

<EDIT>

FWIW - I am running Comcast's NSO on WIN 7 and have no other Anti-virus installed.  I do have MBAM Free , which I use as an on-demand scanner, and SUPER AntiSpyware  installed.  I did have Spybot installed at one time - but removed it, as I felt I did not need it.

One thing I believe in, is that each user has to decide what they feel safe using,  which additional programs over and above their choice of an Anti-virus program provides them a good trade-off between protection and system performance.

Also if you have any specific questions on Norton Password Manager - there are many users on this forum who can help you with that learning curve.

Re: question on using this with comcast

i have removed avast using the cleaner but some are telling me to leave adaware alone and ccleaner as well so i will leave them for now i posted the items running to give anyone a flavor of what i have going on. i did remove malwarebyte as well as on the win 10 forum they said to take it away and use the chrome extension  so for the extensions i have trafficlight, for i think replaces spybot and emsisoft to replace bitdefender or visa versa. plus norton safe web and norton safe search as extensions.

Re: question on using this with comcast

i have adware av free and those extensions are in chrome most of those came for suggestions made on this thread.  and i just posted the extensions to replace the programs i had. they must be programs that chrome uses in conjuntion with nortons av program as when i was using all the other programs by themselves no one ever sid to add them to chrome  

so i have nortons free av from comcast running and it show in the lower right side of the taskbar, ccleaner free is there

and adware av free is also running in the same place, along with windows security suite and windows defender,  so if i see them in that spot they are running in the background.  a nd when i open msconfig it is in selective startup so

 adware antivirus service    running

and nothig else for security show in there but under task manager processes i have these

norton, adware services, adware tray, ccleaner, norton security, norton security wsc services, windows security services.

so if that gives you an idea of what is going on.  thanks much

The more I read, the more confused things become - maybe it's just my old age!

Please click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of your Chrome page, then select  More Tools, and then select Extensions. 

Then take a screen shot of all the extensions listed and we may be better able to understand exactly which extensions you have installed in Chrome.

Re: question on using this with comcast

let's call this one done ok. seems every time someone checks in they do not read the complete thread and then posts and answer to help and then i give that answer and it is starting to confuse helpers. i will start a new thread later. 

i originally asked about how good the norton av is from comcast/xfinity. they offer it to comcast customers for free.

then i posted what antivirus programs i had installed currently 

then i installed norton av and norton started to ask about removing the other antivirus program.

so i got help removing those. i was told to leave adware antivirus installed so i did

then some told about installing  extensions into the chrome browser becasue that is the browser i use.

so i installed emsisoft for bitdefender as an extensions to chrome  

so i installed traffic lite for spybot. as an extensions to chrome  i know how to check for them in chrome thanks

so now i have norton running along with adware and emsisoft and traffic lite all in the extions in the upper right of the chrome browser.

norton is running in the background in the taskbar lower right side along with  adware av now and ms security.

thanks lets now close this. i will open a new one later if i have issues.

This is what happens when you seek advice from multiple sources.  You end up with conflicting advice.

Re: question on using this with comcast

Norton's official stance is not to have any other security software installed along side Norton.

Most here believe there is no harm having the free version of Malwarebytes installed as an occasional on-demand scanner.  Adding more security programs does not necessarily make your machine more secure, especially when they are very similar types of programs, IE both anti-viruses.

The same really applies to Chrome extensions too.  The extensions you have installed are all basically trying to do the same thing.  As you are using Norton now I suggest you remove all others and I'm sure you'll find Chrome runs faster.  By the way, Chrome has its own built in malicious and phishing site protection, so are any extensions really required for this?

This discussion reminds me of a screenshot I seen posted on an Emsisoft blog about PUPs.  No, I am not saying any of the mentioned programs in this thread are PUPs.

https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/2563/what-is-a-pup/

Can you imagine how slow Internet explorer would be running on that machine?

Re: question on using this with comcast

How to post an image in the forums.

You don't really need Norton Safe Search as that makes your machine use a different search engine other than what most use in Chrome, Google, but that is a personal choice.

Norton Safe Web, Emsisoft Browser Security and BitDefender TrafficLight all do pretty much the same thing.  In my opinion you are better off picking one you like and at least disabling the others.  That way you can try one at a time to see which you prefer, but Norton is a jealous beast and will often suggest you use Norton's extensions.

emsisoft extension  now off  so now norton can do this

norton safe web now off  maybe i just do not need this so norton should be doing this correct

norton password manager still on but chrome seems to do that so i may turn it off  as it will not let me see the passwords at all but that may be a good thing in case of theft of my pc.

traffic lite now off.

Re: question on using this with comcast

thanks krusty13 i can't say yet as i was watching a youtube on a obd scanner review. i will have to do some more surfing to see.

i put norton safe web back on and left password manager on yet. i'm still thinking on that one.

so i have now norton safe web, adb adblock plus, popup blocker, all running now. it may take a bit for this to get going smooth in chrome.

also i was under the impression that chrome did a lot to protect my browsing so i may not have needed all that other stuff, but i have had a lot of people tell me this and that and for the most part i would have ignored it but i was using the free antivirus programs and i did have them running good.

but when i switched over to the free norton from comcast i wanted make sure that free antivirus program gave me all the stuff a paid for program was going to give me. and form some of the help post i was told to add all this extra stuff, so i was wondering if i need all that extra stuff what good is a paid for antivirus program even though i got it for free from comcast. it was making me wonder.  it seems if i got that free comcast program it should be good enough to keep me safe while surfing the web, and help me stay out of bad places. and protect my banking and passwords. thanks krusty13.

You're very welcome, corvairbob.  Just remember to keep your Operating System and installed software up to date, only download files you know are safe, don't go to the 'dark side' of the web, don't open email attachments you aren't expecting or are unsure if they are safe and you should be fine.

Re: question on using this with comcast

not interested in the dark side. but i did ask if this program offered by comcast could go there. that may be why some told me to get all that other stuff? i did also say i was not interested in going there as there is nothing there for me to do but get into trouble. but i do want to be safe enough if i was to open a scam email and or click on something the looked good but turned out to be bad.

a week ago i got an email from what looked like the va, i have been talking to them over email for a few months. well this email showed up telling me i could get some va discounts, so i fell for it and clicked on the box i forgot to double check the email the was , sdkjasdj@fklsdjla.com  and all of a sudden it took me somewhere and i saw some pages starting to open that did not look like the va i have been seeing so i clicked the x on that tab and closed it. as it looked like it was setting a ransomware browser up on my pc. i know how to remove them but also i ran a virus scan and was good to go. so that is what i need norton's antivirus program to protect me from. if it can't do that by itself then maybe i need to go back the the old system.  that did protect me, but i have 5 programs running. so can norton do this by itself or do i need to add a few more items. thanks  bob

can you tell me is that norton program that comcast gives up a good one like the 360 program i see on tv all day long? or just a thinned down program thanks
