We are in the process of releasing 9.6.8 to the classic Home Edition user base. This new update includes performance and stability improvements to the existing engine.
All existing installations should get this update within the next hour or two.
This is a good time to remind everyone that although we'll continue to offer maintenance updates for this product periodically this "classic" Home Edition version of Sophos Anti-Virus, but you should not expect this will last forever. We really encourage everyone to look at upgrading to the new Sophos Home product, as that version will get all the new consumer-oriented features going forward.
