Today, a client inquired about virus protection, and mentioned how Comcast is giving away free virus protection. Free is good, right? Not in this case. As part of an effort to reduce infected computers on its network, Comcast has introduced it’s Constant Guard security suite in recent years. Their security software is essentially a rebranded version of Norton Internet Security- with loads of Comcast bloat and unnecessary add-ons baked in. Norton Security has really taken a turn for the worse the past several years. They are no longer what they used to be, and have become more of a problem than a solution.
Let’s get something straight here. Comcast’s “bread and butter’ is as an internet, TV and phone service provider. Any antivirus or security software that they provide is simply an afterthought and a marketing stunt. Because of the many problems these programs cause, between the downtime experienced and viruses that get by. The costs come back to you. From the experiences of other clients, in addition to my own, I can confidently say that this software is going to cause you much more trouble than it’s worth. Users of Comcast’s “Constant Guard Protection Suite” as they call it have experienced these issues as a result of the software’s buggy, inefficient design.
- Slow web browsing performance
- Erratic computer behavior
- Failure to detect or prevent virus infections
- Little to no support from Comcast or Norton
