So i'm very desperate in wanting to know how to uninstall Sophos.
I'm pretty sure it was installed without me knowing on a random website and every time I go to control pad on windows to uninstall it, it comes up saying "Tamper Protection must be disabled before uninstalling".
Since it was randomly added, I do not have a Tamper Protection Password and don't know what to do.
Could you please help as I am desperate to get this Sophos off my computer as I never wanted to get it in the first place.
It´s sound´s more difficult then it is. log In in your Sophos Firewall, go to Antivirus. You can set an new tamper protection password. After that you can use the new password for uninstalling.

Since i never wanted Sophos i don't know what that is. I don't know where to go for "Sophos Firewall, go to Antivirus" and you say log in but i have no log in??
How do I uninstall Sophos Free version form my mac, thank you.
In reply to Richard Laroya:
I need an answer as well.
It is gobbling my data download limits as I use a phone for internet connect.
Sophus is just malware :(
In reply to Alan Johnson1:
Finally figured it out. Spotlight > type Remove Sophos > click on icon > Run > Restart computer
Have successfully removed Sophos that was gobbling my data on it's own updates.
Sophos used 500Mb while I used 50Mb over a day
Now use AVG, no issue at all.
