Hello Jeff,

It seems like you are trying to run an update for the Symantec antivirus when there is already one that is running on your system. Do the following to fix the issue:

  • Press Ctrl+ Alt + Del on you keyboard, and the Click on Start Task Manager.
  • In the task manager windows, go to the processes tab and click on it.
  • Locate all processes related to Symantec antivirus that are running and then end them.
  • After that restart the computer.
  • After the computer has reboot you can retry running the update again.

Hope this helps.
