Windows 7: Symantec Endpoint Protection Problem

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.
