What to do

    • If this driver does not exist browse to the AutoUpdate cache:
        • On Windows 2000, XP, and 2003: C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\Cache\savxp\drivers\i386\
        • On Windows Vista, 2008, and Win7: C:\ProgramData\Sophos\AutoUpdate\Cache\savxp\drivers\i386\
      • Right click on SKMScan.inf and select 'Install'.
      • Once the installation is complete, open services.msc.
      • Locate the 'Sophos Anti-Virus' service, and restart it.
