we have just installed the latest rapid pattern updates for Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6 MP5 . It Dates back to 12.09.2016 Release 31 and the problem is still there.. still looking at it... I updates the esr release on one Workstation to latest Version and the problem has gone.

i think old esr release and actual pattern files triggers the problem.. new esr and actual pattern files doesn´t have the Problem..
