SEP v12 Crashes Windows 7 with teefer2.sys BSOD
March 6, 2010. What a mess! I installed SEP Small Business v12 on a new Dell Latitude E5500 with Windows 7 Professional. SEP updated and then the computer rebooted. BSODs and endless reboots with teefer2.sys problems. Couldn't uninstall Network Adapters with "teefer2" in Device Manager; disabling all Symantec services and programs in MSCONFIG didn't help. Can't uninstall SEP in Safe Mode.
I finally got the computer running again by renaming \windows\system32\drivers\teefer2.sys to ...teefer2_sys, disabling all Symantec services and programs with MSCONFIG and rebooting in non-Safe Mode. Then unstall would remove SEP. I am afraid to reinstall SEP and may just give this employee - and future computers with Windows 7 - McAfee Enterprise 8.7i which seems to work just as well based on a recent minor virus (from Facebook) outbreak.
If someone has a way to SAFELY and RELIABLY install SEP v12 with Windows 7 Pro, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANK YOU!
