Endpoint Protection Slowing Systems Down To A Crawl
Running Endpoint Protection 11.0.6 in my environment. Lately I have had many users complaining to me that their computer takes forever to startup in the morning. After doing some testing, I narrowed it down to when Symantec is updating definitions. It's taking on some systems well over 30 minutes to complete the update. During this time it is next to impossible to run anything else. I went through my settings. I don't have any startup scans running, or scans running after new definitions arrive. These systems are Dual Core machines with 1 GB of RAM running XP Pro. What is causing this to take so long just to update definitions? Do I need to disable Network Threat and Proactive Threat Protection? Will updating to the latest version help? Thanks for any help on this.
