Re-distribution of the installer or other licensed Sophos files electronically or via physical media (such as recordable CDs) is not allowed.
Authorized users will always be able to download the latest version of the SAV software onto the target system directly from Computing Services' highly available servers.
There is no requirement for the general VCU community to upgrade to the new version of Sophos using the manual process. The most common reason this might happen is if you have another anti-virus program installed that you did not remove.
For those who wish to wait, we plan to schedule an automatic upgrade through Sophos. First, look on your control panel to see if there's another anti-virus program, uninstall it, and try to install Sophos AV again.
It is assumed that Sophos will continue to run on Windows systems prior to Windows 7 SP1 but this has not been tested.
For those systems that do not meet the licensing requirements we suggest using Microsoft Security Essentials.
If the problem continues something is interrupting the download files and when sophos autoupdate checks the files it sees a problem with them.
