In general, you always want to keep the protection technologies enabled on a client computer.
You might need to temporarily disable either all the protection technologies or individual protection technologies if you have a problem with the client computer. For example, if an application does not run or does not run correctly, you might want to disable Network Threat Protection. If you still have the problem after you disable all protection technologies, completely uninstall the client. If the problem persists, you know that the problem is not due to Symantec Endpoint Protection.
Be sure to enable again any of the protections when you have completed your troubleshooting task to ensure that the computer remains protected.
