I work for a company that employs Symantec Endpoint Protection. I have a user that has forgotten the password to their pst file. I've tried running a few password reset programs but Symantec treats them as viruses and will not allow me to complete the task. Has anyone else had this problem?

You'll need admin rights depending on how Symantec is managed, but if you disable Symantec it should allow you to run whatever you want to run. Click HERE for a great post on how to disable most common AV/Security applications.
I shouldn't have to note this, but I will anyway: Disabling Symantec is typically not a good idea. It's better to disconnect from your internal network before doing this as its possible for malware to remain inactive until such an opportunity presents itself.
