Every computer that connects to the Luther network must have an accepted anti-virus software. Sophos is supported on Luther's network and is available for Mac or PC. You can see a complete listing of supported anti-virus software on our anti-virus software page. However, if you decide you would like to download new anti-virus software, you will need to uninstall any other anti-virus on your computer. These are the steps for uninstalling Sophos.
Note: This is a process that should ONLY be done on personally-owned computers. If you have a Luther workstation and have a concern regarding Sophos, contact the Technology Help Desk.
Prior to installing a new anti-virus program, it is important that you remove your old anti-virus program. If you would like assistance with this process, please contact the Technology Help Desk.
Sophos Anti-Virus for the Mac comes with a pre-existing removal tool. Follow the instructions below to remove Sophos from your personally-owned computer.
The Sophos shield should no longer appear on the menu bar in the upper right near your clock. If it does, repeat the above steps or contact the Technology Help Desk for assistance.
