Unexpected kernel trap mode after installing Symantec Endpoint Protection

Has anyone experienced a STOP 0x0000007F (UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP) (blue screen) message after installint Symantec Endpoint Protection?  This is happening on an HP ePC running Windows 2000.  I have found that if I boot into safe mode and disable the video controller, the computer boots up and Symantec works fine.  I have already tried updating video drivers with no success.  I have also tried applying the Microsoft patches as instructed on Microsoft's site regarding Norton with no luck.  I do have an IBM Netvista with the same graphics controller (Intel 82815) and SEP works on it just fine.

I have a case opened with Symantec, and they are analyzing a full memory dump that I sent them, but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this problem.  As I said above, it is only happening on the HP ePC.  I have also installed it on IBM and Dell machines, and have had no problems.

Hi

Have you tried the Norton Uninstaller Tool at this link:

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Run this program to completely uninstall Norton products and do a reinstall with the installer Norton selects from your version selection.

Hope it helps.

I will try the above tomorrow when I am at the office.  I do know that these machines had older versions of Norton on them.  I did not know about this tool.  I will run it and uninstall everything, then do a reinstall and let you know.  Thanks.

To find out, go to any SEP client, open the GUI, then click on "Help and Support", then choose "About"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Version 11.0.4014.26

Uucknaaa:  I have taken one of the ePC's, put in a brand new drive and reinstalled Windows.  This will take any remains of old versions of the software out of the mix.  I will be installing SEP shortly and will post the results.

After doing a fresh install of Windows, it runs fine.  If I use the image we have, I get the error.  At this point, I am going to see what Symantec says about the dump.  If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.  Thanks.

Well, after installing the wonderful MS security patches, I got this computer to blue screen again.  It looks like my problem may be one of the patches.  Oh well, thanks for your suggestions on this.
