Remove Xfinity if you want to use avast.
It contains Norton IS.

Actually Norton is separate from Xfinity Eddy, on their website it states that after installing Xfinity you should then download Norton http://constantguard.comcast.net/

"Once you have Constant Guard up and running, download Norton Security Suite for top-rated protection against viruses and other online threats."

It includes a link to download Norton, it still has to be downloaded and installed.

When they say included they mean that with the purchase of Xfinity you also get Norton for free included but it still has to be downloaded and installed.

I've had Xfinity for years but did not install Constant Guard because it does include Norton.

Yes, I can read.  I've also talked to Xfinity Customer Support, asked about Constant Guard and was told it included Norton Anti-Virus.

I thought you said you'd had it for years, you are so full of it you're about to burst ::)

Maybe this link will show some more http://constantguard.comcast.net/home/index.html Norton is given as a bonus for purchasing Xfinity.

Also look at the pic and read it for yourself Once you have Constant Guard up and running, download Norton Security Suite for top-rated protection against viruses and other online threats

Comcast and Xfinity are the same ISP.  When I have a problem with any of my services and a tech comes here to fix it the van the tech drives has Xfinity written on it.

It doesn't really matter, look at the info I have posted and read for yourself, Norton and Xfinity are two separate products - you are given Norton as a bonus for purchasing Xfinity - once Xfinity is installed you are then given the option to download and install Norton.

Can you not read or what, look at the pic and read for yourself, you don't have to install Norton as it is separate.
