Norton is free if you are a Comcast subscriber.

Not with my mom & pop cable company It was free with Verizon internet service as well until 2009. Before I found out about MS Security Essentials, Norton was costing me ~$50/yr.murphy wrote:Norton is free if you are a Comcast subscriber.
There is a reason it is free. It is reportedly rather lame. Just remember that Microsoft created the wholes in Windows they are now trying to plug with this security package.
Free Norton from Comcast is still a good commercial product. McAfee can often be found with a rebate equal to the purchase price. Zone Alarm Suite is also good. I have not used it but Nod32 is reportly good and it is not expensive.
Running your computer without a firewall and anti-malware software is not a good thing to do. If you are a Mac user gloating about the lack of malicious software, just remember that the Mac market share is rising steadily every year, making the Mac a worthwhile target.
Agreed- comcast provides a rebranded version of Norton 360 (minus only a feature or two at most) Works just as well as the norton 360 I had been paying for in the past and installed easily over my existing norton version just prior to when my norton subscription was to run out. (And you can apply to all the machines in your house. It's an actual quality move by comcast!)BackupBob wrote:
