SYMEvent.SYS Crashing Windows 2003

  1. I am new to the boards and I am not sure if this has been discussed, sorry. But recently my 2003 server has been crashing out of nowhere. When I ran a report and sent it to Microsoft. They responded by telling it is Symantec SYMEvent.sys that is crashing the server and symantec is aware of the issue. Does anyone know how to correct this issue?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Microsoft are correct. There is a problem with SYMEvent.sys on some machines/configurations.

    You have a couple of options. You can try turning off the live update. This can sometimes solve the problem.

    If that doesn`t work. Uninstalling the offending software, and using a different security programme will probably solve the problem.
