And this post has what to do with the thread except that you expect some sort of "good boy" award? That's nice, son. Now go to bed and let the adults talk.

No, you don't think you you need it. The average user does.

Posting your (skewed) belief on a forum does not do service to the average user and is nothing more than bragging.

It's akin to telling everyone about all your certs. Makes you feel good, but doesn't impress anyone but you.

Actually Comcast loads Norton 360 and their own bloatware. Also it doesn't allow you to run updates when away from Comcast and continuously wants to verify if the user is still a customer. Better option to buy NIS from ebay for $23 for a 3 license code and not wait upwards of two months for a $50 rebate.

You don't have to install Comcast's Constant Guard in order to get Norton. You can get Norton by itself.
Download the Norton®™ Security Suite

3. Get the latest suite of Constant Guard software and take full advantage of our security benefits including Norton Security Suite, Identity Guard® and XFINITY® Toolbar.
You can also download a standalone version of the Norton Security Suite. Choose your platform below.

Not quite accurate at all. You can install Norton without Comcast Constant Guard. You are assigned a unique key for Norton. As long as you are still an active Comcast customer, you key is still valid for Comcast updates. You don't need to be connected through Comcast to attain the updates.

Have Comcast and was in Europe last year and it wouldn't update. Removed it while in Europe and downloaded NIS from Norton site and purchased a license from ebay. All functioned as it should.
