    sophos not what you'd expect

    Since last week sophos has gone mad!

    sophos.jpg

    Every half an hour or so it creates new processes and tries to eat 100% cpu. I found setting the sophos processes to low priority keeps my computer working. Otherwise everything is so diabolically slow I'm forced to hard reset.

    I've also got 24 instances of conhost started by the sophos account. Sophos described as "xxx program" seems odd.

    First is to check is reinstalling sophos tho...

    How many users is it impacting? Have you raised a support ticket with Sophos?

    No it was just my computer. Anyway it hasn't happened since I uninstalled and reinstalled it so far. So hopefully it stays fixed.

    Strange. Finger crossed that's the end of it.

    Its done the same a few times for me the last couple of weeks usually deploying it again solves it, but I have noticed the new Sophos for mac is playing up to a point of completely locking the machine
