Issue



You modified the log directory settings in Symantec AntiVirus Scan Engine so that it uses the root directory of a partition (for example, C:\ or D:\). After the change, you cannot restart the Symantec AntiVirus Scan Engine service


Solution



To resolve the problem, use a text editor such as Wordpad to modify the LogDir= line in the symcscan.cfg file. Make sure that the path that you add is a valid directory on your computer and is not the root directory of one of your partitions.
