Xfinity Toolbar

I have tried to install the Xfinity toolbar for IE numerous times and each time it fails with the message "cannot start or run due to incompability with 64 bit versions of Windows. Please check with the software vendor to see if a 64 bit version is available."  I am running IE 11 under Windows 7.  I have searched support and these forums but can't find any articles or posts regarding this issue. Is there not a version for 64 bit Windows available?

Re: Xfinity Toolbar

Thanks.  I just thought it might be easier to use the toolbar sometimes instead of the Xfininty home page plus they are always prompting you to download it.

Good advice I'm sure.  Don't want to sway my love/hate relationship with Comcast/Xfinity.

Re: Xfinity Toolbar

I'm a bit late to the "party" so to speak, but I have had no problems with the Xfinity toolbar on Windows 7 SP1 x64 with IE11. It loads really fast, it's convenient, and I never get cut-off when viewing a live show or movie. I think it is well worth having it, but that's my opinion. IE11 has so many page load errors that has got nothing to do with the toolbar. So, I recommend using the toolbar.

Re: Xfinity Toolbar

That's great but it won't install on my machine which, I believe, was my original question.

Re: Xfinity Toolbar

Hi Anon 348144  :

Here's a link to some You tube videos on installing Xfinity on IE11. Also, when I did a search, there seems to be a conflict with the Norton Security Suite. Anyhow, if you'd like to try it, maybe one of these videos will help. Again, I personally like it and have had it since 2012. Even when I upgraded from IE9 to IE11, I didn't lose it. I know the majority feel toolbars are junk and in many ways, they are correct. However, I've never had a problem with the Xfinity toolbar and it is really handy if you can get it to instal. So, here's the link I found and I hope it helps. It's also located in my program files(x86), so I don't know why it's telling you, you need a 64 version for IE11. If worse comes to worse, you could use CHROME and they have an addon for the browser for the Xfinity toolbar. Good luck.
