In my company, we use symantec endpoint prodection. But i have an update problem like this.

How can i solve it? Can Windows 7 block symantec update?

Ensure your Endpoint definitions are being updated. Put in a firewall exception for Symantec updates

Another issue (that my company sometimes experiences with this) is that Symantec doesn't start up as fast as Windows 7 would like after you first turn on and log in to the computer, so it will think that Symantec is turned off and warn you about it. After a few minutes Symantec will start up and the action center messages will clear themselves.
