How to get rid of the Introducing Norton popup

I do not want Norton.   I am perfectly happy with what the Mcafee that I have - which I did not download from comast.  Could someone please tell me how to make the "Introducing Norton" popup go away.  I cannot close it - it just reopens elsewhere on my screen. I have called comcast three times, Norton twice (they refer me back to comcast), I even have a comcast problem ticket number, but no one will call me back with a resolution to this problem.  This popup is a constant irritation and is worse than a virus.  I was told by one technician that I had to download Norton to get rid of the popup, but that is ridiculous.  Now I am wondering if it is in fact true.  I hate when companies try to force something down my throat.  I will get rid of comcast if I cannot get this popup off of my computer.

Understood!!

 

I have elevated this to our admin and agree with your thoughts.

 

I have not heard of these actions before, and am sure our admin will contact you in regards to your comments.

Hello pbarbe,

 

I apologize for the delay.

 

Are you able to send me a screenshot of the pop up please?
