Symantec AntiVirus Corporate 10.0.1.1000

I have the same version of SAV and use the same switches and it seems to work just great....except for one thing...

...after it's been installed, at each and every logon afterwards, an explorer window open to C:\PROGRA~\Symantec automatically opens up.

I can't figure out where the command to do this is coming from.

Bear in mind I am installing SAV10 as an unmanaged client, not a server install, or server dependent install.

Anyone ever come across this before?

Also, the tray icon seems to have disappeared, although the services are indeed running.

does anybody know how to get rid the update virus windows box if virus defination is old one month after installation...

i always update this

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\INTEL\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion]

"NoWarnPattern"=hex:24,02,13,00,00,00,00,00

and check registry

reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion" /v PatternFileDate

But the warning still comes out...

using sav 10.0.2.2000 now....

I know this is quite an old post, but just in case someone else is having the same problem . . .

I had exactly the same problem and it freaked me out no end trying to "google" for the problem cause it don't seem to exist - however the solution if buried deep inside the Symantec web site and is as follows . . .

This can happen if a registry entry that points to a Symantec application is formatted incorrectly.

To format the registry entry correctly

On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run.

In the Open box, type the following text:

regedit

Click OK.

Go to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

In the right pane, double-click vptray.

In the Edit String dialog box, add quotation marks around the entire path.

For example, "C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\VPTray.exe"

Exit the Registry Editor.

Restart the computer.

After fixing the reg setting I just exported it and then import it back at the install stage to make absolutely certain it's there!!!

Hope this helps

I have a Python script that I have been using for over a year that updates the XDB file. It does a lot of error checking, too. :) I have used it for SAV CE 8.x, 9.x and 10.x without any problems.

You would have to install Python from www.python.org, so this may not be practical for everyone. I run this from a scheduled task every afternoon around 5:00 Eastern.

You should verify AVPATH and TMPPATH variables.

Ok I tested the above code and when ran that line, it just opened up another command line window, and nothing happened. Is that what it is supposed to do?

It did not continue with my original batch file until I closed the new opened command line window...

This is my exact line of code:

START /WAIT "%CDROM%\Apps\Applications\SAV10\Symantec AntiVirus.msi /passive RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS"

Why is it opening a new command line window?? and not doing anything until i close that new window??

your problem could be Symantec AntiVirus.msi

ren the file name to sav.msi maybe help
