Interim fix for Sophos 7.6.8 issues on Windows Vista x64

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

Sophos is expecting version 7.6.9 to be released at the end of the month, and it include the registry key noted, and the fix is tentatively slated to be released in 7.6.10 at the end of July.  This will allow for proper and complete testing of the proposed fix for this issue

The packages to request from Sophos support are:

  1. "Windows Endpoint Security and Control 8.0 with SAV v7.6.8 S215 VDL4.42E" – for enterprise customers (distributed install)
  2. "Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows v7.6.8 S215 VDL4.42E" – for home/standalone customers.

This contains the following registry key set:
32-bit: HKLM\Software\Sophos\Webscanning\SuppressBHOLoader
64-bit: HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\Sophos\Webscanning\SuppressBHOLoader

Please get in touch with Sophos support to get the URL to retrieve this interim workaround.
