Update on Sophos Issues

This is an update for posts

  1. Sophos IE8 add-on prevents IE8 from loading
  2. Resolution to Windows Security Centre not recognising Sophos Antivirus
  3. Sophos Antivirus on Windows Vista HP x64 not detected by Windows Security Centre
  4. Vista SP2 doesn’t recognize Sophos AV anymore

I’ve been in contact with Sophos support and they inform me:

The Windows Security Centre issue only affects 64 bit systems and will be corrected in the 7.6.9 version due out at the end of the month.

Sophos are aware of the IE8 issue as well.  IE8 will usually open if you use the link at the top of the start menu, or if you run as administrator.  To temporarily work around this issue, you can disable the BHO from within IE Options (this will disable the web scanning).  Sophos are currently waiting for more information from their Development Team on this particular issue

    [...] is not a fix for all the issues raised in my previous posts, but a workaround released by Sophos for Sophos [...]

    Did you ever find more of a resolution to the IE problem? I have found that PCs with Citrix online plugin and IE8 still have major issues with Sophos. They claim that they can’t figure it out. Not sure if they are really working on it.
