Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows, standalone installation
What to do
- Ensure that you can access http://es-web-2.sophos.com via Internet Explorer.
- Check for other vendors security products, for example a firewall, which is blocking access. Remove these products if they are present. Once removed Sophos Anti-Virus should now update successfully.
