I just got Symantec Endpoint Protection up and running, and one thing I'm noticing on the couple of servers I deployed it to is that in their C:/Program Files/Common Files/Symantec Shared/Virus Defs/ directory are filling up with files with .tmp for the extension.  They are being generated approximately every 6 minutes and using gigabytes of space and growing.

Any ideas on this one and how to control it?
