    if the installer's like their old one, it should allow you to exclude the tools you don't want/need and keep the stuff you do want. the norton product is a modified version of norton 360.

    I've came across a link that it installs some sort of keyloggers. Does norton have something like that for protection?

    I've helped several Comcast subscribers set up their security. Via Comcast, the Constant Guard suite is separate from Norton. It includes an anti-keylogger, a password manager, backup software, and an anti-identity theft module (no sure how it works). Once you've installed CG, you may download and install the Norton 360 Suite from within CG. At that point you may choose to uninstall CG -- Norton remains. (Although it's not obvious, I see that it's possible to download Norton without installing CG: from http://xfinity.comcast.net/constantguard/Products/CGPS/norton/)

    In my experience CG is very heavy on resources and not really necessary, so I typically uninstall it.

    Get ready for this...............They use CA associates in the toolbar and I think for web filtering. Give me Symantec for web filtering any day.

    I emailed comcast and ask why the heck they would ever make a deal with CA. You might as well have Clam.
