Symantec Endpoint Protection is the Waters corporate software used during evaluation. The customer is responsible for evaluating compatibility and, if necessary, finding alternative solutions if their AV software conflicts with Waters applications.
Add exceptions to the antivirus software to exclude folders and other related file extensions used by Waters applications during real-time virus scans. Full AV scanning should be scheduled outside of normal use or acquisition times in the lab.
Network Threat protection and Heuristic AV software should be avoided.
Real-time updates and full hard-disk scanning should be scheduled around system usage in the lab, when acquisition is not occurring, to prevent file and disk contention.
