ThinkVantage Away Manager and Symantec Antivirus Causing Excessive Log Files

Excessive log files can be generated by both the Symantec AV client and the Windows Application Event Log when running ThinkVantage Away Manager and the Symantec AV client.  These programs conflict with each other and generate several log events per second.  On the laptop of one of our team members, the Symantec log files had grown to 5GB in size.  There are two methods for stopping the conflict.  [more]1) Turn off Tamper Protection in the Symantec AV client.  2) Uninstall ThinkVantage Away Manager.  It is basically Lenovo’s version of Windows Scheduler and did not appear especially useful.

Symantec stores the log files at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5\Logs.
