Uninstalling the Home Edition (free) version of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac is different to the Enterprise (paid for) version. However it's really easy to do.

Even simpler (though it's based on Spotlight having previously indexed the file) is to type 'Remove Sophos' into Spotlight and select the uninstaller...

The posts above are for version 9. To uninstall version 8 it is basically the same process except that the uninstaller has a different name.
Note: You can also locate the uninstaller for version 8 by searching for it in Spotlight (like the post above this one suggests). Searching for the words 'Sophos' and 'remove' in any order should find it. The only thing to note is that the version 8 uninstaller is called 'Sophos Remove' and not 'Remove Sophos Anti-Virus'.

Lost misplaced the removal app? Ran the uninstaller but it's still there? We've developed a removal tool to help whisk SAV for Mac off your computer. For more details see the article below.
Please post any feedback and comments to the main MacTalk board to let us know what you think.
