Sophos antivirus configure updating greyed out
If you wish to perform a manual scan, right click on the Blue Shield in the system tray, select Open Sophos Anti-Virus and then select Scan my computer.
Your computer will perform two automatic scans a week during the evenings.
During the install process Sophos removes your current anti-virus solution. When your Windows operating system detects the removal of its anti-virus protection it alerts you with a warning message.
This appears as a small white message down by your clock.
Because we are in the process of replacing Symantec with Sophos and are actively installing a new anti-virus solution these messages can safely be ignored.
If you get a message saying Sophos has detected a virus, Sophos will automatically quarantine it. In some cases, it may be adware or hacking tools installed on your computer.
