    every virus it found, even when set up to destroy with as much viciousness as possible, it just displayed a message and let the virus do its stuff.
    I think we just get caught out with its name - its just called Sophos Anti-Virus - just cause its called that doesn't mean it actual does anything about a virus - its just Anti them

    regards

    So far the best deal I've found is AVG at around £12k every 2 years for the same number of machines. Did think about Avast but the quote was $$$'s even with an education discount.
    I'm surprised your AVG quote was so high - our renewal this year was in the region of £2500 for up to 30 servers and 450 clients - and it would've been a lot cheaper if I could have committed to a multiple year job.

    I give up! too many figures running around my head and too much looking into licensing and getting quotes over the past few days. Did I really put £12k? Ooops, It was/works out at around £1200 per year. So £2500 every two years is pretty much bang on.

    I'm going to drown myself in a cup of coffee and get my head straight.

    The forefront quote I mentioned earlier was right though - even if the vendor was quoting for the wrong product

    If Ray's prices are correct - which, being MS I'm sure they are, then Forefront is looking like the way I'd go after all - Oh hum!
