    If you have AV properly installed, the messages will disappear by themselves. Check to see if that is occuring propgerly. ... Thinkpads_User

    Is your server R2? if not you may need to locate win 7 administrative templates for specific GPO settings.

    As Thinkpads already implied, that is by design.  To the best of my knowledge, there isn't a way to turn them off via GPO or registry modifications due to security and/or anti-malware concerns.

    This ended up being a Symantec issue... It was fixed by:


    Symantec is currently investigating this issue and it will be fully resolved in a future build of the product.  
    To workaround the issue, run a repair on the client which will re-register the SEP 12.1 client with the Windows Action Center.

    Go to the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features
    Click on Symantec Endpoint Protection
    Click Change
    Click Next
    Choose Repair, Click next, click Install

    Thank you and thanks for the update. I have clients with SEP V11.x (not up to V12 yet) and Action Center is not putting out any warnings with V11.x . Thanks for the heads up on V12. .... Thinkpads_User

    Agreed... thanks for the feedback!  Much like Thinkpads, I am managing Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.6 clients and it's always good to hear some feedback on the newer versions.
