Sophos Firewall on a windows 7

How to install Sophos Firewall on a windows 7 client using SBE.
The remote registry service needs to be started on the client, by default ths windows 7 service is stopped.

Using services.msc start Remote Registry - Service. This assumes that the windows firewall is off, not to sure which ports need to be open.

Then using the Sophos SBE console push the firewll to the required windows 7 client.

Just need to see if I can deploy the Sophos Antivirus the same way, until now we have installed locally on the client and updated from Sophos SBE.

Fake Anti Virus System Tools

Have just been removing Fake Anti virus from a clients PC.

Found this on You tube, worked like a dream

I used the "RogueKiller" software in safe mode, it removed the startup files for the "system Tools" fake av.

I then ran my antivirus to make sure that the system was clean. I have had the pc running for a while and used IE and still no fake AV.
