does restart of the system supressed the message?

can you try reinstall/repair of the SEP client?

Simply Click on "OK" and Run a Full Scan.

This may happen when situations that may require an immediate restart include malware remediation, schedule urgency, and proactive threat protection against an imminent threat. As well as essential content updates.

Secondly on a kind note, please migrate the SEP SBE 12.0 to the Latest version of SEP SBE 12.1 RU1 and above.

I use the Symantec EndPoint Protection 12.1 on a standalone kiosk which can be used by different persons. Is it possible?

-        To deactivate this popup so that it doesn’t appear after an update.

-        Or if it is not possible to launch automatically a reboot?

Thank for your answer.

Hi Vhenzsk8,

I think you have restarted the machine and the problem is same.

1.Full scan the system and restart the machine
2.reinstall the client with the latest version.

Hope this will work.....


Thanks and Regards,
