    Thanks for the heads up! The related/linked article on slow logons looks like it may be a problem i'm experiencing here.

    Re: Warning all Sophos Users

    Just upgraded our only server 2000 to server 2003. Left it this long because it is the server than runs the Sophos central installations. After reading your post i upgraded it and all is well.

    Cheers

    Re: Warning all Sophos Users

    well, small warning for you, i hit this kicking and screaming but it was with XP not 2000, take a read of http://www.sophos.com/support/knowle...icle/3024.html

    Also there are a few permission issues too, but i think that was down to the BGfL cocking something up rather than Sophos but i cant remember what i changed now.

    But even after all that, i would still reccommend V5 its tons better then V3x

    Sophos breaks for us about once a week! It gobbles up RAM by the GB! It ate 2.5GB of ram last week! So we are getting fed up with it. Sophos support are running out of ideas, and so are we. Here we come Symantec

    Re: Warning all Sophos Users

    I think sophos is no good in my opinion. It takes up so much resources on the computer it stops some of our workstations from upgrading SIMS.
