HI,

Can you provide Snap shot ?

try re-installing the SEP and see if the client comes back.

or

This is a general error message indicating that communication with the server failed. Run the Symantec Endpoint Protection Support Tool to diagnose the problem.

Hi,

I think the Wininet.dll file is missing on the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

If the file is missing restore it to system32 folder --> reboot

Do a repair installation of SEP then once again reboot the machine.
