So I want to end this process by task manager but I get a comcastantispy.exe error message: "Access violation at address 00423D88 in module comcastantispy.exe. Write of address 0000000D ". when I shut down my pc, I get this error message once again and my computer refuse to shut down, I have to try it again. What is comcastantispy.exe? Is comcastantispy.exe a virus or trojan? If so, How to remove comcastantispy.exe? Why comcastantispy.exe consume nearly 100 cpu times? Is there a comcastantispy.exe error repair tool could fix comcastantispy.exe access violation errors?
