I uninstalled the Comcast Desktop Software but bcont was not removed
bcont.exe on my Windows 7 computer is NOT in the registry key location mentioned in the file.net information. It cannot be removed by the control panel's add/remove applet; and it has a Verisign signature that is invalid.

I believe it is associated with Comcast as I just began their internet access right before SupportSoft began running.
