Hi all,

 I have symantec end point installed , Im blocking the USB . Cd, etc using it. Also I have put a password to protect it so no one can uninstall it. I found that someone is using some symantec tools to remove it. I need some advises in how to deny such cases.

    Accepted Solution

    There is Symantec Removal tools that will remove Symantec (for use with problem issues) and it will remove Symantec even when there is a password.

    But you need to be adminstrator to run these removal tools, so make sure the users are in the normal (restricted) category and that no one (unexpected) does not have the admin passwords.

    You should try and find the tools that they are using to remove it.

    Further you should make use of Application and Device Control policy and deny the access to Symantec folders/files and registry to be accessed or deleted.
