Comcast is injecting SSL AUPM notifications into my applications rendering them useless

For the past few days I have been entirely unable to use one of my PC applications because when I open it there is a huge Comcast overlay saying they have a AUPM notice for me and prompting me to call their Comcast Security number. Said number left me on hold for over 2 hours with no response. This overlay has a "HERE" button that is supposed to close the overlay but does nothing. The only other thing I can press is an "About Constant Guard" button that takes me to a webpage overlay IN MY GAME that talks about Comcast's Norton Security. (No escape from there either)

After research I discovered that Comcasts injects these "Emergency" messages in people's HTTP browsers when you get close to or reach your data cap.. even though the message said NOTHING about that. Customer support knows little to nothing about this.. obviously. I haven't found anything online about them injecting these into applications. They could just EMAIL people when they are close to their data cap like a NORMAL ISP. SMDH

My data cap like everyone else's get reset on the 1st of every month and thus, on the third today, it shouldn't be happening, however it still is.

The first forum post that I created about this was deleted as well! It is almost as if Comcast is using these (what I think would be ILLEGAL) ssl injections to annoy customers to the point of just paying extra for unlimited bandwidth! Which is completely insane and terrible business practice. I have already left as many 1 star reviews as possible for Comcast Xfinity on all review sites (not that you can lower a 1 star rating any more...). 

I would love to hear from a Comcast rep as to the legality of these attacks on my computer, and a solution other than me dropping the ONLY ISP provider in my area. Will attach screenshot of AUPM notice when I get to my home computer.
