While one can always visit online antivirus scanners from well-known security software to scan one’s PC – or get a particular file scanned with an online malware scanner using multiple antivirus engines, some prefer to have a standalone on-demand antivirus scanner installed locally.

In this post, we will see some of the free on-demand second opinion antivirus scanners which you can use.

The Uof R has licensed Sophos Antivirus for Windows 7/10, and OS X systems (10.9 and above) to be available for use on University owned equipment, including Evergreen machines, Evergreen opt-out equipment, machines purchased with APEA funds or any other Windows or Macintosh systems purchased with University funds.

It is assumed that Sophos will continue to run on Windows systems prior to Windows 7 SP1 but this has not been tested.

We have to create a new OS-Images for all clients again.

Note: The Sophos antivirus scanning feature is a separately licensed subscription service.Some of them are standalone, while some of them, you may need to install.Let us have a look at the standalone virus scanners first.regards Arne Hi, I managed to install Sophos using the following guides: Sophos in disk image Unidesk Guide I've also noticed that in the kmssetup.cmd, just before REM COMMANDS TO RUN EVERY BOOT there is a GOTO END that needs to be commented out, otherwise, the commands that are supposed to run at every reboot will not run.I've installed Sophos in the OS layer as it creates a user.

Now we are not able to start sophos at the clients. - The old version of sophos run well - After the Sohos-Management deployed the update, sophos could not update the version on the clients - we build a new OS-Layer by using the unidesk desciption for sophos an deployed it to a desktop - Sophos starts in the new version, but coud not start the "Sophos Anti-Virus" service. regards Arne We are having similar problems but only on 27 of 75 MM's which is really strange. On the machines with errors, the sevice runs but they have the error: Could not find a source fo update packages.
