What To Do
Restart the SAV service
You can often resolve the issue by doing the following:
- At the computer which is showing the error, open Windows Services.
- Restart the Sophos Anti-Virus service.
Check folder permissions
If the problem persists check the folder permissions where the file
SAVI.dll is located (e.g.,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\SAVI.dll).
It is also worth check the file permissions of the DLL files in the same folder as well as the folder permissions itself. Compare these permissions to a working computer.
Example of checking permissions of the SAVI.dll file:
If the problem still persists re-install Sophos Anti-Virus on the affected computer.
It is also recommend that you check for any other error messages or software that loads during boot up that might cause the computer to start up very slowly.
