Since last week sophos has gone mad!
Every half an hour or so it creates new processes and tries to eat 100% cpu. I found setting the sophos processes to low priority keeps my computer working. Otherwise everything is so diabolically slow I'm forced to hard reset.
I've also got 24 instances of conhost started by the sophos account. Sophos described as "xxx program" seems odd.
First is to check is reinstalling sophos tho...
