    right click on IE and start without add ons ?

    See if its still the same if so then its not an add on and if its fine then it may be an add on or ie ( try a full repair / restore on ie 7 that or un install and use ie fix ( requires OS disc at same SP level as OS on the computer ) then re install ie 7

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\PCENT is definitely where Policy Central is installed. I don't recall there being a file called c32cs2.exe and it may or may not be a false positive.

    We're getting the same sophos messages too.
    File "C:\WINDOWS\system32\PCENT\Profile\FRCU\C32cs2.exe " belongs to virus/spyware 'Mal/Generic-A'.

    Virus/spyware 'Mal/Generic-A' has been removed.
    Thought it was just us but there must be something up with PCE or sophos....

    BUMP.

    Has anyone in Birmingham had the updated PCE through yet? We had a text for Link2ICT almost a week ago now, saying it would become available overnight and downloaded automatically..still nothing

    Ours updated automatically.

    We did have an issue with some machines reporting that they had updated to 3.0.0.8 via PCE but in fact were still on an old version. Forensic software fixed it remotely. So far all is well

    Ours hasn't updated.... We have our own install hosted internally, guessing the update has been applied to the bgfl hosted servers.... can't find a way to tell ours to update though.

    Have a look in System Options - Network, have you filled in the correct info? If so then call it in to the service desk or ring forensic software directly.

    I've installed v3.0.0.8 on quite a number of machines now. Interestingly IE does seem more stable overall, but browsing speed still isn't that great.

    On the same workstation on Monday, IE7 with the latest June security fixes was already running, but I also installed FF 3.5 and there is a massive difference in browsing speed. BBC.co.uk and Sky.com took about 10 seconds to fully load, but with FF it took about 2 seconds and this was at the same time...

    The problem is I am reluctant to deploy FF 3.5 as there's no straight forward way to specify homepage, proxy settings etc with GPOs and no automated way of patching either. IE is much better to manage in my view.

    I agree but I also find FF very slow to load initially compared to IE - once it's running it is fairly quick.

    Well one test I'd like to do come September is to take a laptop and a desktop with IE7 or IE8, FF 3.5 and Policy Central v3.0.0.8 installed and try it from home as this takes the school proxies out of the equation.

    The reason I want to try this, is because at home I run IE8 and FF 3.5 and the speed is pretty much the same with both browsers at the same time.

    Ours is also internal, we had problems updating to 3.0.0.7 but Forensics applied a fix for it to update. I figured this would sort it for the long term, but maybe it doesn't.
