  1. Click Start.
  2. Click Run.
  3. Type services.msc and click OK.
  4. Browse to and right-click Computer Browser, and then click Properties.
  5. Change Startup Type to Automatic.
  6. Click Start.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Browse to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Services.
  9. Restart the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Services.
  10. Log in to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager and run the Client Deployment Wizard.
