My take on their Terms and Conditions prevents me from posting any details.
What version of Norton comes with Comcast? I heard it is quite an outdated version of the program.
I believe the download is an old version but running Live Update and restarting as required until no more updates are found will give you the current / same version as the non free Norton.
How many updates are required and why can't they just have an updated version available?
Don't know and don't know. Sorry.
I have Norton Security Online with Comcast it is the latest version not an older version.It may require more than one restart although I have never had to do this.
Norton Protection End-of-Support Announcement for Windows XP and Windows Vista
Norton Security 220.127.116.11 for Windows is now available!
Is anyone here running Norton anymore?
I just put it on one machine just to see how long it takes to bug me with pop ups.
Keep us posted. Does it still want to install browser extensions?
@Krusty I just updated, but don't have the Smart Scan feature yet. Then I read the release notes again, and it says it's only available in the US for now.
It doesn't automatically install those browser extensions. It strongly suggests them and encourages you to install them, but it is not automatic. You can choose, like me, to not install them.
https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/norton-security-online-sunset Comcast and Norton ended their partnership earlier this year. I was going to try it out with Voodooshield.
You could still download a trial of the retail version.
Although, I see they are so generous that the trial is for 7 days only!
But as pointed out by @bjm_ elsewhere, and to tie into the other Norton thread:
Wow a whole 7 day trial and you need to give your card.
They need that to get all your information so they can send spam by way of the Postal Service like they did to me.
