Symantec Endpoint Protection Problem

Hello,

The other day I booted up my computer. Everything was normal until Symantec Endpoint Protection started to install without me running any install applications. I did have it already installed because my colleges provides it for free. Anyways, I am wondering why this happened and continues to happen every time I turn on my computer. Also, is there is a way to stop it. I am running the Home Premium version of Windows 7.

Check in your startup programs whether the updater is sitting there. If yes, disable it.

I cannot find the updater anywhere in my startup programs.

I guess then you have to check in the programs controls.

Well, this has never done it before. I even have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but I continues. Also I haven't changed any settings. Do you have any other ideas?

i am not familiar with this particular program. But knowing Symantec, I am sure there is a setting somewhere that does this.
What you can do is go on the Symantec chat line and ask them. They are always very helpful.

Looks like it works. I checked with Symantec, they say they don't support Beta OSes but if you were going to try to do it, this is how you should, not that they're saying nuthin'... You have to use version 11.0.4. Run (as admin) LUSETUP.EXE to install liveupdate, reboot, and then run SETUP.EXE....

Just thought that I'd share, this version of endpoint protection works great on build 7077-7100, it will not work on older builds.
