    Hey Mks, i had exactly same problem few weeks ago, and it was concerning all "fling's trainers", process was not responding, and only a black window appeared after a while.
    disabling and stopping SEP (with command "smc -stop") and no effect, but uninstalling completly SEP seemed to solve the problem, the trainers were running again, BUT i noticed a problem while SEP was uninstalled, when i was running the trainers or firefox , the "encyption service" was running higher and sending datas through network which was absolutly not regular (i am not using any encryption tool). For instance Firefox was very long to quit, and the encyption service was running max meanwhile. and i noticed that with SEP installed, nothing was happening... For me, something really nasty was running downthere, i tried several scans and notin been found, so i wasn't able to fix. So i did all from scratch, wiped sys drive and reinstalled win. All is fine now. I know this solution is worst you can choose, but i've tried to fix for several weeks before having no other choice than reinstall.

    Now, i'm doing some sys backups from time to time using Acronis True Image, just to avoid reinstalling win hehe.

    I tested Sajjo’s recommendation to disable Tamper Protection, then import the Reg Exclusions, unfortunately it did not work on Build 14.3.3385.1000. However I was successful to import the Reg Exclusions on Build 14.3.3580.1100. So it looks like the latest build has the issue resolved and Thank-you Sajjo for suggesting unchecking the Tamper Protection option.

    Steps I performed:

    1. As per Sajjo’s suggestion: disable Tamper Protector

    2. Rebooted system then Imported the Reg Exclusions

    3. Upgraded the system to Build 14.3.3580.1100, rebooted and verified the reg exclusions took effect.

    4. Enable Tamper Protector, rebooted and verified one more time the reg exclusions still in SEP

    Hopefully others will have the same success.

    Thank you digilifeluver

    Restored the system to old backup (win 10 "1909") and SEP 14.2 and things worked perfect then uninstalled SEP and reinstalled 14.3.3580.1100 but the exceptions list was not retained......again uninstalled SEP and manually cleaned up the system of symantec leftovers, then reinstalled 14.3.3580.1100.(worked)
    updated the system to (20H2-build 19042.844)....so far the games trainers are working right.

    the only changes made to this system was removing SEP and installing the latest release and I still believe SEP did some damage to the system on the earlier release following 14.2.5569.2100.

    Registry issue:

    Found this info on knowledge.broadcom.com Id=tech105814
    (In SEP versions 14.3 RU1 and later, exclusions are no longer viewable in the registry)

    The last version for Linux was 14.3 MP1 (14.3.1169.0100): Symantec_Endpoint_Protection_14.3.0_MP1_Linux_Client_EN.zip

    No more 14.3 RU1 MP1 (14.3.3580.1100) for Linux? Or how do I get it?

    OK I have this versions of SEP because I install SEPM from Full_Installation package (LostEd links)
    but I never have installed nor Linux or Mac versions of SEP....

    I'm sorry I cannot upload these packages anywhere...my internet connection is veeery slow and 40Mb is maybe 1 hour of my limited hours I have per month.

    And also I realize that I only have SL (Spanish) SEP and you want EN.

    Thanks for the offline updates. I thought those had not been available for a long time.
    When you say "last offine definitions" for SEP 12, do you mean the latest or do you mean they too will be discontinued?
    I'm already looking for a replacement AV, as I'm unable to install any SEP later than 12.2 on Windows 7.

    When trying to install SEP 14.3 on my Windows 7 SP1, I get a message that it can only be installed if you already have kb4474419 installed.
    When I try to install kb4474419, it always says "failed to install". Been trying for a long, long time to figure this out and so far failed. Suggestions from others always end in same message.
    Wish I had an answer.
