Endpoint protection will not install because of error "The installation package is not supported by this processor".  
It has an Intel Atom processor and is 32 bit.
I have disabled Windows defender and it does not have Microsoft update KB2781197

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

I dont know that you will find one... is this processor an x86? is it listed on the documentation? Everything on Symantecs site is pointing to no besides the possibility it was the go version of windows 8.1....

Here are the processor requirements from Symantec. I don't see the Atom processor listed. I believe that processor below the requirement:

Processor

•32-bit processor: 1-GHz Intel Pentium III or equivalent minimum (Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent recommended)
•64-bit processor: 2-GHz Pentium 4 with x86-64 support or equivalent minimum

I think the Intel Atom processor is below them.
