Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you changed anything on that computer’s config? Like the Windows Firewall settings? What does it show on the PC itself?

    rRn malwarebytes (malwarebytes.org) on the infected PC. ( Free and easy product to use)The pop up that comes up is a sign of malware. Unfortunately, Symantecs is not the best product we are finding out, for spyware issues. After that is run and cleans your issues, you should be able to update your AV.. We have had this happen many times. due to spyware hosing up the dat updates.We run v10.1 and will probably be looking for something newer this next year. hope this helps.

    what i can understand with your problem, Antivirus server cannot able to connect to its clients right? now tel me if it is able to ping the system? That error occurs only when it is not able to communicate with the system like the client is not in the network or their is some network issues, i will be suprised if any virus or spyware is stopping it from doing that..
