“Symantec Endpoint Protection has detected that there are pending system changes that require a reboot. Please reboot the system and rerun the installation.”

When trying to install Symantec Endpoint Security the following error may show up:
“Symantec Endpoint Protection has detected that there are pending system changes that require a reboot. Please reboot the system and rerun the installation.”

The first step would be to reboot, but sometimes this is not possible because of important system services, or after a reboot the error still shows.
Please try the following:

  1. Open the Windows Registry using regedit.exe.
  2. Search for the entry “PendingFileRenameOperations” in:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  3. Restart the SEP installation; the install should finish without error.
