Exclude the Sophos for Microsoft SharePoint folder from indexing:
- Browse to C:\Program Files\Sophos\ in windows explorer
- Right-click on the 'Sophos for Microsoft SharePoint' folder and select 'Properties'
- Click the 'Advanced' button and de-select 'For fast file searching allow Indexing Service to index this folder'
- Click OK
