On-access scan ability to cleanup adware/pua
Request for the ability in on-access scanner to be able to remove/cleanup adware and pua's automatically and not have to do it manually or use the scheduled scanner
Ok we understand PUA are not viruses and can't be cleaned up /removed systematically in each case BUT there is a real need for customers to automatize the CLEANUP action (as available as possible action) in order to not need a manual intervention that is especially painful because only effective when clients are online.

Voting for this as well; again not sure why this isn't already baked into the product.
As an Admin, I should be able to simply login to the cloud console, find the affected machine, and select an option for the PUA or whatever alert is there to be cleaned up.
It makes no sense to alert me that something was found and blocked successfully, but then force me to touch the actual client and scan it from there.
I've used McAfee, Symantec, Trend, etc. and all admin consoles all have this by default.

I really want this feature in the Sophos Cloud application. I see the current tool as a virus reporting and quarantining tool but not actually a virus cleaner. When you manage a large enterprise environment it is not convenient to not have an auto clean option.
