Sophos Update is a utility that enables the automatic updates of IDE for Sophos Anti-Virus. The software was develloped for Windows 2000/XP and Windows 98/ME.
March 2005 Sophos came with a new version version of Sophos Anti-Virus (v 5.x) that supports automatic updates. This utility cannot be used for this new version, because home users can also update directly from the Sophos update servers. Sophos Update can only be used for the 3.x versions of Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP and 2003.
