    Technically I love this software, very light and fast and effective.

    Only one thing I don't like is that when I try to run some KMS or patch file, it jumps out and deletes the file. Even when I select "Disable SEP" at tray icon, it still jumps out when I try to run a patch.
    "Hey, you are supposed to be disabled."

    Once I just couldn't run a kms file for office 2010 (I know it's old but I like that GUI better) under SEP and I had to unstall it, ran kms to activate office 2010 and install SEP again. Very annoying, I tried Mcafee endpoint security in a laptop. That one is fine, when I disable it, it IS disabled. No annoying pop up.

    Any ideas?

    Ah, let me try this one. I only did the disabling on the tray but didn't run the second step.
    thank you very much for the help.

    Seems to me that installation of Symantec Endpoint Protection is only possible on clean Windows installs. Every time I upgraded Windows 10 I've been forced to uninstall SEP first and after the upgrade, I've been unable to reinstall SEP. No matter what really and the same issue on all my machines. I just upgraded to 1903 which is my second upgrade on this Windows install. SEP install complains with "Installation interrupted ...". I've lived with the resource hog Windows defender long enough now, developed a habit of disabling the real-time protection which of course is bound to get nasty. I think I'm going to wipe my Windows to a clean install and see if the SEP install is happier there.

    edit:
    Indeed, Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.2.3335.1000 installs just fine on my new clean W10 1903

    Not trying to TC, but SEP is really a piece of s**t in terms of real world protection capacity, not to mention it's heavy on resources as well.

    LOL, I'm by no means an expert or tried many antivirus progs, but I used SEP for years and I'm happy with the performance. It has some annoying habits as disable all my pirated games, in more of an anti-piracy policy sense than the cracks being actual threats. It sometimes interferes with image writing, for example, making a Windows bootable USB with Rufus etc etc. But - Windows defender makes, for example, editing in Visual Studio a true pain, checking the same thousands of text files over and over again. I lived with the crap for over a year and now I'm so pleased to have SEP there instead ❤️

    I've also used SEP for quite a while, one thing I've not managed to figure out ia how to upgrade to a newer version of SEP?
    Should I just download the latest setup and install over the current?

    It is overly aggressive but you can tell it to exclude a folder for your KMS files.

    Yes, just run the installer and it will update... it will just say installing.

    Can you set the program to exclude certain files rather than folder?
