User Account Control (UAC) is enabled.
Note: To check if this document describes the computer in question, download and run a pre-install check with SymHelp.
User Account Control (UAC) is an integral part of the Microsoft Windows security model. It allows administrative users to log on to Windows with a "split token" - a limited user token is provided to logon, and when necessary the user is prompted to provide an administrative token to perform tasks that application developers and/or the operating system consider administrator-only tasks.
It should not be neccessary to disable UAC in order to install or adminster the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client, or the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), but it may be neccessary to run Symantec applications as Administrator, or start command-line applications from an elevated command prompt.
