8. VERY IMPORTANT: Please leave your computer ON and connected to the
internet for several hours. It now has to communicate with the Campus Sophos
servers to retrieve Autoupdate information. Then, please email litinfo@ucsd.edu
and let her know that you just installed Sophos and she will do a little
housekeeping with the update server. When she is done Sophos will now run in the
background, run updates and scan files to keep your MAC Safe.
