We tried enabling only the relevant features of SEP, it did not result in any significant improvement.

Only installing SEP Core or unistalling SEP completely seem to be the only solution.

The second thing that came to mind is related to the points I recently made about Windows XP file system decay.

The fact that Microsoft is not maintaining the XP file system (NTFS) in the same manner as their newer OS might be the key to this issue. Details are still emerging but the official Symantec statement is in an article titled SEP 12.1 Win XP Users Experiencing Blue Screen when running Proactive Threat Protection Definitions July 11th 2012 rev 11.

That was the first thing that came to mind when I read that “Proactive Threat Protection” software was the cause of a new rash of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) in Windows XP.

Scan the headers below for best practices in all areas of SEP and lots of links to helpful guides, as well as a way to get a free analysis of your SEP environment at the bottom using Symantec’s Best Kept Secret.

There are a lot of moving parts to admin work, so here is a list of Symantec’s guides to content revision configuration, server certificate updates, GPO, testing authentication, central deployment, Live Update, and clients with both SEP and Data Loss Prevention: If your users do not use a VPN, you should change the Live Update policy setting to use the default Symantec Live Update server – this allows remote clients to update any time they connect to the Internet.

Also, tune the scheduling frequency down to one hour.

It even explains the best way to use a MS-SQL database for large environments.

According to Symantec, an upgrade to version 12.1.5 will take much longer than you expect (sorry).
