A number of computers in our office network are having network critical programs dropout once or twice a day.
At first I thought it was an issue with one of our switches because it seemed to be only happening in certain departments, but what I've found is that it is the specific program that is dropping out, and not EVERYTHING.

i've been looking through the event viewer on the client PC's and on the domain server and the only similarities of events that I can find around the general time of the dropout is that LiveUpdate (for symantec endpoint and/or backup exec) started, stopped and deployed.

I've checked the liveupdate policies but it doesn't seem to be paying attention to the schedule I made.

but then again, how can I even be sure it is liveupdate causing the network interruption?
