    "Can't install"

    December 11, 2011  |   By Fred_Mane


    Absolutely none


    Will not install.


    Tried installing numerous times. Says it can't connect to Sophos server. When you click the help link it takes you to a forum thread with several pages of posts from disgruntled users. Some managed to get it to instal by clicking their date/time in toolbar. If this product can't even install properly, I will not trust it to protect my system. Free is nice, but too often, you get what you pay for. Moving on to something more reliable.

    In such a case, it is always helpful to let us know what Mac and what OS you are using. Then, if the reader is using the same, he/she can save himself the trouble of trying it. But if yours is a different configuration, your experience may not apply.
