Me Too!I have the same issue
Product(s): Symantec System Recovery (formerly Backup Exec System Recovery) - SSR 2011, Symantec System Recovery (formerly Backup Exec System Recovery)
Severity: Non-data threatening / major functionality
Status: Investigating/gathering information
Tech Note: More Information


The Symantec System Recovery (SSR) service (VProSvc.exe) causes a blue screen to occur when it is started.

A blue screen has also been seen when a backup starts or when the SSR user interface (UI) is launched.


Windows 2003 SP2 x86 Enterprise Edition (virtual machine running on Hyper-V)


At the time of writing, there is no workaround. This article will be updated when a workaround or solution is available.
