PLEASE READ FIRST!

I've now been blogging here since 2007! ...Wow, has it been that long already?! Over the years, I've covered a wide array of subjects from scripting, troubleshooting, to the occasional hobby project. I have literally heard from thousands of you over the years with questions or even just offering me a bit of thanks!

Recently, I quit my full-time job and started work on an IT business, Rhythm IT Solutions, helping other IT departments manage their IT environments. We're offering consulting & professional services (Office 365 Migrations, Network Discovery, Firewall Management, etc...) as well as Endpoint Management (AV, Patch Management EDR, Managed Backup, etc...)



If there is something (on my blog or not) that you could use some additional help with, I would LOVE to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out to me using the contact links here or the contact form on Rhythm's website.

For those wondering, I do plan on continuing my work on the blog. So don't worry! There are plenty of Greg Strike posts yet to come! 😊 Thanks for stopping by!

I hope it’s just me but I find the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager very cumbersome and slow! Some of the most common (and supposedly simple) management tasks an Administrator has to perform are the most difficult to find. There is very little within the UI that is located where I would expect to see it. When I do find it, it takes forever!

One of the most common tasks I have to do is clear a computers “Still Infected” status so it doesn’t mess up my reporting. My personal belief is that this should be handled automatically by the SEP Client & Server, but for whatever reason, it’s not.

Here are the steps necassary to clear the “Still Infected” status:

Open Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console. Click "Monitors" in the left menu.
Click the "Logs" tab located at the top.
Select "Computer Status" for Log Type Click "View Log" Note: It is possible to create a new filter that will only display the infected computers. I find that SEPM runs a lot better when doing thins.
Infected computers will appear with a RED diamond on the left. All the clients depicted have green diamonds and are not infected. Click the computer you wish to clear the status on. Click "Clear Infected Status" at the top of the window.
