You have one or more files with a $$$ file extension that very large (over 1GB in size) in one of the following locations:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\Temp
First seen in
Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 2000+
These are temporary files that have been extracted by the scanning engine while scanning an archive file larger than 1MB and are removed when the scan has successfully completed.
If a scan has been forcibly terminated (not cancelled) through ending a Sophos process then the file(s) will remain and must be removed manually.
What To Do
- Stop the Sophos Anti-Virus service (SavService.exe).
- Delete the $$$ files.
- Restart the Sophos Anti-Virus service.
