ComcastinstallerMac_1312.pkg

As part of initializing a new cable TV interface box, a software package titled "ComcastinstallerMac_1312.pkg" was installed on my iMac desktop computer. What is this software? Do I need it? How can I uninstall it if it causes problems?

You don't need it, close it if it's running and go to your applications folder and drag it to the trash.

Thank you, but I can't seem to find it in my applications. Do you know what it is named?

It might not really be installed, but sitting there waiting to be installed.  Where do you see it, on your desktop?

Re: ComcastinstallerMac_1312.pkg

Showed up as one of those boxes to unpack while I was initializing a new Comcast cable box. I clicked it to move forward and it told me where it would be installed. I clicked ok and it churned then reported "Install Completed" (or something like that). After verifying that me cably box was working and I got all the channels I wanted, I began to wonder about ComcastInstallerMac and googled it.  That's when I saw the negative comments about it but couldn't figure out how to uninstall it - thus, my blog for "help."

What are you asking?  If it's not there, don't worry about it, you don't need it.

Re: ComcastinstallerMac_1312.pkg

But what is it? Why is Comcast dropping software packages on my computer?

Sure, you may not "need" it, but it must exist for a reason. What will happen if I run the installer? What exactly is being installed?

I got the same thing as someone said above.

How can I know what it was?
