Hello,

When was the Last time you restarted the machine? I would suggest you to restart the machine and check again.

Could you post us the SEP_Inst.log?

Secondly, try running the SymHelp Utility which may assist you to understand the basic issues.

Again, there is a known issue, Symantec Endpoint Protection client fails to install to recently updated Windows 8 computers. Please refer to below technote for more details. Check whether you are having the same issue.

You can work around this problem using one of the following:

  • Disable Windows Defender before installing the SEP client
  • Remove KB2781197 before installing the SEP client

Hope that helps!!
