How do I bypass Symantec Antivirus from blocking me from rescheduling a backup job?

Recently I deleted the backup job in Symantec Backup Exe11d and replaced it with a new job.  When I try to schedule the backup job Backup Exe shuts down and the Symantec Antivirus Notification pops up with
Target:  D:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\BkupExec.exe
Event Info:  Suspend Thread
Action Taken:  Blocked
Actor Process:  C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe (PID 1736)

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Have you tried temporarily disabling your antivirus to see if it will run a backup or add the scheduled backup job to you rallowable tasks??

Yes I have disabled the antivirus....I did a test run & now it will let me choose to run according to scheduled but will allow to choose the dates...Backup Exe shuts down without any errors when I try to schedule the backup.... Any ideas?

There were some scheduling issues with backup excec 11d
see if you can run a live update and get the application to install all patches
reboot server and then create a new job
