Now I’m in the process to migrate all anti virus clients to Symantec EndPoint Protection.
I’m very well aware of all Symantec Anti Virus Products, specially that I used to use Symantec Anti Virus Corporate Edition (now called Symantec EndPoint Protection) . The best thing that I like from Symantec that even though many people complains that Symantec Anti Viruses are very slow (and I agree ) but it very stable.
And talking about viruses, I prefer slow but accurate rather that fast but there are many viruses still slip away.
But, after many successful installation of Symantec EndPoint Protection, I failed in one computer, with the error message.
symantec endpoint protection has detected that there are pending system changes that require a reboot
After search the net, it’s not Symantec problem, actually more than Microsoft problems.
The solution is quite simple.
Open regedit (you should know where and how to run regedit 🙂 ), find the value PendingFileRenameOperations, then delete all the data.
The data should be like this:
After you delete the data, now you can continue to install Symantec EndPoint Protection without anymore problem.
