So I’ve just received my new Windows 10 Laptop and want to install Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6. I received the following error “the wizard was interrupted before Symantec Endpoint Protection ( SEP ) client could be completely installed” (See Image Above)

Every time it would go through the process of installing,and then rolling back. The strange thing is that on some notebooks it worked just fine.

The Solution

1. The first step is to disable the windows defender real-time protection. If you not sure how to disable it go to –> How to disable Windows Defender



2. After running the setup again I got a prompted to reboot.


3. After rebooting and logging in disable Windows Defender again.

4. Go ahead and re-run the setup. Your installation should now proceed.
