Enabling, disabling, and configuring Tamper Protection
When Tamper Protection is enabled, you can enable and disable protection types for Symantec processes. You can configure Symantec AntiVirus to block or log attempts to modify the processes. You can also configure a message to display on affected computers when a tampering attempt is detected.
