"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Sid F,

As per the article below "If you are using Symantec AntiVirus (SAV) 10.x or Symantec Client Security (SCS) 3.x unfortunately there is no facility to add Tamper Protection exclusions."


However you could disable it completely, see below article:
