WILL AVAST! FREE BE COMPATIBLE WITH NORTON SECURITY SUITE
« on: November 15, 2010, 07:15:56 PM »
I have signed up for a service bundle with Comcast which includes Norton Security Suite.  Will Avast!Free be compatible with that Norton Suite or will I have to remove Avast!Free?  (Avast!Free is currently working with Windows Defender, and with Super AntiSpyware).  I have Windows XP Home.  I currently have dial-up but with Comcast I will have high speed.

Just call Comcast and tell them you do not want Norton, which is probably not as effective anyway coming from your ISP...problem solved.  The AV's that ISP's offer are optional services.
iMac (Mavericks)/Safari and Firefox (NoScript/AdBlockPlus/BetterPrivacy/Ghostey)/
Vista Home Prem (same add-on's)/Avast Free/Online Armor Premium Firewall/MBAM Prem)/ Avast Mobile Security with MBAM Pro/ iPad 4th gen.
