Create the directory it wants - C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\data\temp\UploadTemp\

Temporary resources should never be included in any installation, it's sure sign of the negligence of the developers. More general and even better advise is exactly to wipe out Symantec and avoid it like a plague - based on my about 15 years' experience with this company.

Try the following:

1) Download and run "CCleaner" to clear all temp files in your system


2) Download and run "The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility";en-us;290301

3) Download & run Symantec CleanWipe from this link

(Rename it from .txt to .exe before running)

Restart then try installation again

That will pretty much wipeout Symantec. Is there any method short of reinstallation
