    Here is the reg setting to disable the message on clients in the meantime.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sophos\SAVService\Application]
    "DisableEndOfLifeMessaging"=dword:00000001

    what is the easiest way to push this setting out?
    an example of a startup script would be great

    or can it be done via gpo?

    any help would be great

    The article mentions how to push out the change to all clients using the share that they update from. That may be the easiest way.

    I have created an adm file to do this through group policy, just copy and paste the below into notepad and save as a .adm

    CLASS MACHINE

    CATEGORY "Sophos"

    POLICY "Disable Sophos Expiry Msg"

    KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Sophos\SAVService\Application"
    EXPLAIN "This policy disables the expiration of sophos 7 messages"
    VALUENAME "DisableEndOfLifeMessaging"
    VALUEON NUMERIC 1
    VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0

    END POLICY

    END CATEGORY

    that adm didn't work for me. I used reg2adm to remake it and got this instead, which does work:

    CLASS MACHINE
    CATEGORY SOFTWARE\Sophos\SAVService
    POLICY Application
    KEYNAME SOFTWARE\Sophos\SAVService\Application
    PART DisableEndOfLifeMessaging NUMERIC
    VALUENAME "DisableEndOfLifeMessaging"
    END PART
    END POLICY
    END CATEGORY

    Sorry if this is a bit of a simpletons question but what do I do with the adm file in AD. At home at moment so cant have a look. Presume I just import it from the File menu and it then affects all users or do I have to do it with individual GPO's?

    How did you run the reg setting with a startup script, any chance of a copy of the script?

    regedit /s \\domain\netlogon\sophosmsg.reg
