    Sophos Improvments

    The January release of SAV (which will actually be released around 19th Dec) will include code to significantly improve performance on machine with less than 256 Mb of RAM, so you should see a substantial improvement from then.

    YAY! Hoorah! I have been calculating how much it would cost to put all my machines to 512 and its far too much, but as I always say I will wait to see what it does!

    I remember when Dr Solomons AVTK did the same thing to PCs with less than 16MB RAM (IIRC) many years ago (goes off to find pipe and slippers...)

    They really didn't like the answer, I mean REALLY didn't like the answer.
    Because they don't have the money to buy new PCs.

    Re: Sophos Improvments

    This is very good news... i've had a very large number of complaints in one of my schools about computers running slowly... to be fair it is taking about 10 mins to log on since sophos has been installed, which is ridiculous.

    The Celeron 300MHz/128MB RAM machines just about die a slow death when asked to do anything at the same time as running sophos.

    it was because of this problem we finally had to get rid of sophos,
    our pcs were too old and slow,
    we have switched to nod32, it has a much lower footprint and we find it works a lot better, has a good remote management tool as well,
    im not sure where sophos is now , but i do remeber it needed to reinstall the whole program on every update, and on a monday morning with 400 people trying to logon at the same time , the network would grind to a halt.

    Wow, our 2ghz P4's with 256MB ram die painfully when the scan starts up (even though it is lunchtime when it is running, people still complain). How in <insert your choice of deity here>'s name did you get it to work on those machines?

    This is good news, as our Bursar doesn't like it when I turn around and say things like '30 of our computers are too old or too slow to do X' accompanied with an order form...

    I had never even heard of NOD32 before your posting. What are the costs to education?
