    Symantec endpoint crashed today on startup, then microsoft led me to a
    patch. the patch though (KB894391) is years old and for xp? I am not
    too worried about the problem (yet), but I wonder how many might try
    to apply a patch to SP3 that was meant for SP2. I don't plan to try...

    If you have SP3 it shouldn't let you install it.

    Why would you ask Microsoft to fix a problem for Symantec's product and/or
    even think about taking said advice if they did offer it?

    After all - you said, "Symantec endpoint crashed today on startup" and not
    "Windows XP crashed on startup."

    Just saying...
