Symantec Endpoint Protection client RRS feed

  • Question

  • from its "readme":

    "After you install the Symantec Endpoint Protection client on Microsoft Vista and restart, you may see the following validation error:

    "The security processor reported a file mismatch error."

    You must then restart Microsoft Vista again.

    This problem may occur because a specific system setting is removed when a program runs with administrative credentials. The removal of this system setting may cause a BIOS validation check to fail. The BIOS validation check is part of the system activation process. Therefore, you may be prompted to restart Windows Vista, even though the system did not previously require a restart. For example, this problem is known to occur when you use Intuit QuickBooks 2007. This problem may also infrequently occur when you install other programs or device drivers.

    Contact Microsoft Corporation for the Microsoft patch to fix this issue". WHAT IS THIS PATCH?


    PS it looks like validation fails when Netbios stealth mode is enabled in 3rd part. firewalls like Endpoint or PCtoolsfirewall
