Re: downloading free norton

The link previously given is good info how to.

 

You dont want to run two security programs that run live updates together, norton wont play nice with other ware, unless it doesnt run live and only updates and runs on your manual command.

 

You can download cnss at comcast security page.

 

Id personally use whatever tools ness to remove any and all old security ware first google your specific need.  Or the new install may not run right.

Re: downloading free norton

fanteddy,

 

I'll assume you meant you want to run Spybot Search & Destroy with the Comcast Norton Suite.  If I'm wrong, please post again.

 

Spybot S & D may not coexist peacefully with the Norton offering.  It's teatimer application has been known to wreak havoc with other antimalware applications, and vice versa.  Norton's installer may even require Spybot removal, to complete--or offer to take care of that removal during the Norton install process.

 

You may be able to get rid of Spybot S & D, then install Norton, then reinstall Spybot.  But even doing that may cause issues.  If you try it, I would recommend turning off the realtime protection in Spybot S & D (meaning teatimer).

Hi fanteddy :smileyhappy:

Here is a great link the flying elephant posted about how too;http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&selected_nav=&pvid=nsce_1&...

 

It contained a link to show you step by step how to put comcast sec on your pc, but you will find the comcast security download :http://security.comcast.net/ . Verify your pc meets the stated stats.

I cant recall if I said to remove all other security ware first google for removal tools if ness.

Scan for virus', malwarebytes is awesome and free.

Then load new norton from comcast. And do not load any toolbars even comcasts...rid yourself of any you have now before loading it.  Its really much better without them.

 

Let us know if you have a difficulty and def' look into bartleby's info here :smileyhappy:

Hi tricianewton,

Please note when you get to the download of Norton Security Suite, just click on the NoTnaks Burrong on the Constant Guard Protection Suite popup and that will reveal the Get It Now button which will begin your installation.

 

Any questions/problems, please post back.

Actually there is a limit of seven!  The same number of Comcast email accounts you may have!  Once you hit the limit, you'll receive a message about it - so install away.
