You have Symantec Endpoint Protection MR4 MP1 with Network Threat Protection installed. If you launch an executable from a UNC path on a client, the client loses network connectivity.

Symantec has removed the download for MR4 MP1 and does not recommend migrating to it until a fixed build is released.
