Norton is it's own virus

Norton backup builds huge files, 62 GB on my PC, I have heard of others with over 700 GB.  Delete them and it will repopulate in a few days.  Security with Win 10 is very good so I uninstalled Norton.  Problem is that Norton is it's own virus, it cannot be removed by just an uninstall it is buried so deep.  You will get a pop us telling you to reinstall it, only way to get rid of the popup is to go into task manager and close it out.  I did that and removed the Norton program and folder that was causing the popup.  No dice, it finds a way to keep popping up.  How can Xfinity agree to let Norton install a virus on the very machine it is supposed to protect?  Shame on Xfinity.  They should pressure Norton to allow a clean, easy uninstall.

 

I bet Xfinity deletes this comment.
