    Surprised you say that about Sophos, I've had no probs with it at all, it runs like a dream. I've had no probs either in education or out in Industry. Norton is another matter though.

    Sophos standalone doesn't work on Vista yet, but the enterprise console does have Vista for an option

    I'm not a fan of Sophos either, they have improved the latest one, but when it did a definition update for example this big window would pop up and the machine would grind to a halt, totally unacceptable. Now the later one does not have the box, but still goes dead slow when updating.

    Re: VISTA and antivirus

    Sophos here - no problems on the machines we have tested, installed automatically via GPO as soon as the machine hit the domain with no tweaking required on the enterprise console at all.

    The only problem we have had with Sophos in nearly seven years of using it properly was caused by a corrput copy of the install CD last year when the LEA upgraded us last year.

    The latest version (6.5) seems the best yet in terms of resource appetite.

    SAV10.2 is a free upgrade for licensed users.
    Get your LEA to pull a finger out and download a copy for you!

    Re: VISTA and antivirus

    Vista doesn't really need an anti virus product as it's the most secure operating system ever invented!
    And anyway, if you do feel the need to have one why not use Microsofts own Onecare Product, it's wonderful and all you will ever need....

    Arrggghhh...
    Bill plse take the twigs out from beneath my fingernails,
    please......

    Of course I use AVG on my own machines, it's quick and lite but I still haven't been able to get the AVG Antispyware product to work properly with Vista yet which ran fine under xp.
