    Any feedback on this? We have to wait for our source to the net to upgrade before we can push it out across the enterprise, but from what I have seen it looks a lot slicker... moving away from that nasty Windows95 kinda interface, now looks more like a kind of MMC snap in.

    Cheers to Mick for getting the screenie :D - Kinda reminds me of Giant/MS anti-spyware.

    Now Symantec need to catch up, again.

    Alright. I've been trying to figure this out. Do you need an EM Library key to auto-update?

    [Only on my home PC]

    Definately looks slicker - more XP look and feel and defiantely seems to do a full system scan quicker on my home PC.

    You are meant to be able to set it to automatically download updates from the Sophos server but I can't get it to work. I can't seem to get it to recognise the latest ide files either.

    I have just started using this at home. Very slick as you guys say. For you who are having trouble updating you do need the EM user/pass. Not rolled it out at work yet though

    Just as well Freakzilla, check this out:
    (the following services are part of Sophos 5.0.2
    SavService.exe, ManagementAgentNT.exe, AutoUpdateAgentNT.exe, RouterNT.exe, SAVAdminService.exe, ALsvc.exe, ALMon.exe and all appear in services.msc)

    Is the memory footprint quite stupid or is just me?
