The customer has just installed the endpoint agent and is noticing that internet explorer loads slowly, opens pages slowly, and is showing high cpu utilization.


The endpoint agent was installed as a user that is not a member of the BUILTIN\ADMINISTRATORS group.


1. Sign in as a user that is a member of the BUILTIN\ADMINISTRATORS group.

2. Run this command from a command prompt to validate your permissions:  whoami /groups | find "Administrators"

3. If that command returns nothing, than you do not have the necessary permissions, any result is considered a positive indicator.

4. Uninstall the agent.

5. Reinstall the agent.
