Program sucks up memory. Installed during Comcast toolbar setup. Navigate toC:\Programs\comcasttb and use uninstall.exe
Since installing the toolbar, I have been getting a window at logging off regarding an Access Violation+# at ComcastAntiSpyware.exe. Computer/C/Files/comcastantispyware/uninstall.
It is using 13% of my CPU
Get a reliable VPN service (paid) with a client on your pc side and create your own key, Comcast will simply see a locked conduit terminating at another site outside their zone of sight, sounds odd that you need another service to protect you from the prying eyes of a service we pay hundreds for.

Best practices for resolving ComcastAntiSpyService issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ComcastAntiSpyService. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
