SEP client stops service on client machine

Hi, I am new here and have a issue with Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.03.  I have started migrating from SAV10.2 to SEP 11.03 in my network.  I have half XP 32 bit clients and the other half are Vista 32 bit clients.  I have migrated 2 Vista machines and 1 client the service keeps stopping and or crashing. When reviewing logs it is very vague in error explanations.  It does mention an error of 1846, which when contacting Symantec states LiveUpdate not updating Virus Definitions.....which they are updated.  

This is a daily occurance for this 1 Vista client.  I have tried removing, re-installing and still get the same end result....HELP!

Thanks for your time,
Melanie

you might want to try removing it manually i had a similar issue and for some reason the add remove did not work propertly but removing it manually or using a utility called cleanwipe might do the trick

when you said reinstalling? did you remove the software from add/remove programs or did you manually removed all of the files folder and registry keys?

I removed it from Add/Remove Programs.  Then I re-deployed it through the SEP Management console...

Ok here is waht you need to do.

Save it to the c: then you will need to rename it open command prompt and then type the following command

ren CleanWipe.txr CleanWipe.exe  then hit enter

Well the Clean Wipe program worked great, now I can't push the install to the client.  Any suggestions?

Thanks!

If the push failed you can try navigating to the parent-client install folder and launching the set up that way and see if you get it to work. I use a website and i resently formatted my SEP install since i was just testing so i cant remember off the top of my head the install folder but im looking at my SAV 10.1.5 and the install folder is under the following folder \\myserver\\VPHOME\CLT-INST\WIN32VISTA and im able to launch the set up manually when i need to by double clicking on the set up icon. Note that this folder is only for clients not for deploying a servers.

the cleanwipe.exe  downloads and extracts a UnEngVar.bat with the following PREDEFINED user defined vars with RYAN AQUINO hard coded and should NOT be. This would have been rebundled to include it.

UAppData=C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan Aquino\Application Data
ULAppData=C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan Aquino\Local Settings\Application Data
USERDOMAIN=thesystemshouse.local

UStartMenuPr=C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan Aquino\Start Menu\Programs
UStartMenuSt=C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan Aquino\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
