To modify installed features for an individual client

  1. Open Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Select Symantec Endpoint Protection, and then click Change.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Select Modify, and click Next.
  5. Use the drop down menus next to the individual component to either "This feature will be installed...", "This feature, and all subcomponents, will be installed...", or "This feature will not be available."
  6. Click Next.
  7. Click Install to modify the installation.
  8. After the installation completes, a restart is required if the change installs or uninstalls Network Threat Protection.
