Constant Guard, any good?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been using,
Microsoft Security Essentials, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Malwarebytes Anti Malware.
Now Comcast is offering the Constant Guard Protection Suite for free, in my area...
Should I be using it also?thinking.gif

As a rule of thumb, only one "realtime" scanner should be running. In your case, thats MSE. "Constant Guard" sounds like another form of realtime protection, its likely to conflict with MSE (two programs trying to scan every file you read/write at the same time).
Also, its provided by Comcast... that sounds fishy in itself.

BillyB29 Resolved the problem. Here is his response: I read an article elsewhere (tomshardware) and one of the members said that it was the new protection suite he had downloaded from his ISP. Apparently there was a keylogger embedded in the suite (why a protection suite would include an invisible keylogger is beyond me...) With this information, I uninstalled my new security suite that I too downloaded from my ISP. Please note we both had 2 DIFFERENT security suites. He had some funny named one which I can't remember the name of and I had Constant Guard from Comcast. I was originally only using the Norton Suite comcast provided, but figured since this is a new computer, I'd give it a try. Well I just uninstalled it and tried one of my games - and so far... so good. Looks like that may have been the issue. If you installed any NEW anti-virus or security protection suites, I would try uninstalling them and then give it a try. Worked for me.
So as you can see it was Constant Guard from Comcast.
Thanks
