A company I know insist on using Sophos. I find it a resource hog and have always avoided using it myself. A couple of years ago the company using Sophos got hit by a virus that infected Sophos so that it quarantined some of its own executables and in so doing shot itself in both feet. One infected computer was completely hosed and effectively unrecoverable.

On another occasion the Sophos updater detected the latest update as a virus so it wouldn't install it. Sophos had to distribute a patch by email to be installed manually to recover Sophos' updatability.

My recommendation: STAY AWAY FROM SOPHOS.
Phil
