If you dont have any permissions set for SEP then try re-installing it over the existing install and see if that fixes the issue.

Thanks,

Use the Symantec Manager to push it out again to this problem workstation.

Do you say above that you have no permission to remotely access the problem workstation?

My question is why the SEP cannot open by the uset?
The others ate OK.

Opening SEP requires the user to OK the UAC prompt.

For this problem user / computer, make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and see if SEP opens that way.

Since the issue is unique to one computer and another user profile also does not work, you need to back up the computer and reinstall Windows.
