Anti Virus Download

I'm trying to install a Sophos anti virus program onto a Windows XP driven computer. I have downloaded the files, but they stop installing in the middle of the process, and I cannot get them to finish the update install after several tries. Any clues out there?

Redownload the files, sometimes they get corrupt.

Sophos Download

Tried it 3 or 4 times, same result, they get hung up on the installation phase....It has to be something deeper into the system hanging things up.

Why Sophos? That's usually not installed on a home computer. It's a network AV app.

Also, it won't run at all on an AMD64-class box.

Anti Virus Download Problems

My Laptop, but company network. The company administrator can fix it, but I wanted to see if I could do it with my DYI backup team.

Too many variables, I'm afraid. Not the least of which is your company's IT people allowing you to load security software that's configured for their network.

It's like downloading a generic version of Contivity and expecting to be able to VPN.

Somtimes you have to bite the bullet and call the help desk at work.
