Policy Central and Sophos
Has anyone else had issues with Policy Central when Sophos is installed on clients? Forensic are saying the the Sophos Add on in IE7 causes the policy central client to crash IE7! Sure enough, when i disable the sophos add on, IE7 works fine, or when i uninstall PCE client and renable the Sophos add on it works fine.
If anyone else has had this problem, how have you overcome it? Have you had to run IE7 with No add ons? as im not sure if i could do a GPO specifically telling the Sophos Addon to be disabled

Sorry to reply to your post so late...
several things make PCE unhappy, the main culprit is java. It has supposedly been fixed in a recent patch and I have seen some improvements but im not 100% its completly fixed now.

How are things now with PCE. Looks like we are about to sign up and any advance warnings would be appreciated.

Tons of problems with performance between PCE/Sophos/IE7
Not sure where the issue lies.

None here between Sophos, PCE and IE8 (Vista SP1)..

Since the last PCE update we have had no real problems.
We had an issue of it not blocking sites like youtube correctly but Forensics have given us a fix for that which seems to be working on the few clients I have it on for testing. We should be rolling it out to all clients next week.

We have experienced issues with PCE/SOPHOS/IE7(&6) but we are moving most of our clients to IE8 now which appears to be stable.

Apparently there was an issue with a single version of Sophos (7.1 something I think) and PCE 3004 which caused it to hog a constant 20% of the processor but this has been fixed.
Recently I have to say updates from Forensic have been few and far between for PCE (used to be nearly every fortnight now every couple of months if not more) so hopefully the system is finally settling down.
What I must add is that the support from Forensic is great and we have developed a good rapport with the product managers and support staff they helped no end when we were first having teething issues.
We dont use PCE for site blocking as we have ISA filtering and LEA Filtering in place (pointless feature for most secondaries imho) but i can understand how that would be annoying if it did not work
