My Sophos anti malware software has stopped working.

Did simply installing MacBooster 8 cause the issue. Or did you actually run MacBooster functions, and then the issue occurred.

Sophos first blocked MacBooster 8 and would not allow me to install it.

I then  gave permission for Sophos to  accept MacBooster 8.

I was able to run the software but the Sophos Shield went orange with the message real time protection not working appeared.

I was unable to reinstall Sophos on this computer but Mac Booster 8 is working.

I  managed to reinstall Sophos on another iMac with the same operating system.

On this computer Sophos is working but MacBooster 8 is not.

When i try to open the app I get the message "You do not have permission to open the application MacBooster 8 app.. Contact your computer or network administrator for assistance."

Thanks but I had seen this post already while trawling for an answer.

I have contacted Sophos support and following their advice I have now uninstalled MacBooster 8.

I think I will just keep the software and reinstall it when I feel my computer is slowing down as I rather have continuous protection against ransomware etc
