Comcast Anti Spyware

How do I remove comcast antispyware as a process.

 

I cannot find it in my add/remove programs and it is running and using almost 100% of my cpu cycle causing my computer to hum like a jet.

 

Any help in removing this would be greatly appreciated.

It's part of the Comcast Toolbar. Remove the Tool bar.


Signature: 127.0.0.1, Sweet 127.0.0.1 and I recommend all of these Anti-malware tools and Procedures. (updated May 2010)

Always a good idea - even if it's not causing the CPU to bury the needle Smiley Happy

Navigate to the folder:  C:\Program Files\comcasttb. (note if your OS is 64 bit, the correct folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\comcasttb

 

 

Run the uninstall program.  Reboot your system and double check the process is no longer running (task manager).  You'll need to manually remove the folder called "comcasttb".
