I am using SAV 10 in managed mode. I would like to lock down or disable the configure menu on symantec clients using the Symantec system centre console, so that users do not make changes to the file system auto protect or internet email auto protect setting.

How do I do this?

Hi anyirongo

On the management console right click on the server or group that the clients reside on.

All tasks - Symantec Antivirus -

Then on this menu there are various options relating to clients -
Client Auto-Protect Options...
Client Tamper protection options..
etc

You can set client policies here, and most setting have a radio button with a picture of a padlock next to it.
Configure the settings as you require then click the radio button so the padlock looks like it is in a locked position.  This prevents the client from changing the option.

cheers

Kevin
