It was an issue with the one recently updated windows patch from Microsoft.
I remember I had updated the machine with latest windows patch, as I am sure there was no error
or issue in the Symantec as it was working fine till windows update. Then I tried uninstalling the windows
patch which was creating issue for running Symantec properly.
To Uninstall Windows Patch
Open Control panel then Program and Features, select Installed updates and select the one which you
want to uninstall. can check in Image – 2

Once after I remove the patch and restarted the machine, Symantec started working without any more error. Waiting for the next update patch or hotfix builds from Symantec asap.
