Sophos with or without Firewall


Because the Sophos firewall can be very aggressive, we only recommend you installing Sophos Anti-Virus incl. Firewall if you are already familiar with firewall configurations.

Download the latest Virus Identity Files (IDE)

If you are using an older version of Sophos Anti-Virus and do not update your virus protection automatically, please download the IDE files to identify and disinfect viruses, worms, trojans and spyware. The link can be found here.


Sophos Boot CD


In some cases it may be necessary to scan an infected computer offline in order to successfully remove malware. Sophos provides a tool for Windows which allows for a quick and simple creation of a bootable ISO image. Further information and the download link can be found here.
