If Sophos Anti-Virus is unable to complete a update using either Update Now or its regular hourly update, an X will appear inside the Sophos menu bar icon.
Immediately after installation, run Sophos's Update Now to get the most recent version of the Sophos program and its virus definitions.
The first time you run it, Update Now may take several minutes, depending on your Internet connection.
In the log file I get the following error: Time: 02/09/2009 Message: ERROR: Download of SAVXP failed from server \\SERVER\Inter Chk\ESXP\ Module: CIDUpdate Process ID: 5276 Thread ID: 5712 anyone got any ideas?
These are the release notes for Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.3 for Windows Recommended versions, managed by Sophos Enterprise Console or standalone.
Some of the features mentioned in these release notes are only available on managed computers or if you have the appropriate license.
You may find that you cannot yet download and use the latest version on the list below.
Automatic updates Sophos Anti-Virus keeps itself current by checking hourly for new updates whenever your computer is connected to the Internet. This happens in the background and does not interfere with your use of your computer.
After the installation is complete, you can safely move both the Sophos Anti-Virus U-M installer and the Sophos_Anti-Virus_files to the Trash.
For more information about removing Endpoint Security and Control, see knowledgebase article 12360. (The option works correctly in the native 64-bit version of Windows Explorer.) This is due to a missing Sophos registry key, that has not been migrated during the OS upgrade.
