logging would be required to know the cause. I suggest you to open a support ticket if you still encountering the issue.

Hi AJ-O1,

Can you see some viruses in your network.

It is possible, if virus available in network/system. First you can see that.

Do check the event id and compare it with SEP release notes. Versions prior to RU 7 tend to have issues on SMC crashing out. New version seems to be having new pipe for SMC. Infact even RU 7 MP 1 had an SMC crash , but got fixed on just a reboot. Check the version and see if you can save time.

May be symantec service was corrupt due to hardly shutdown the system on the time of upgrading any new defintion patch/policy.
