Allowing savservice to start delayed or have the updates check non running services more frequently

Sophos Endpoint. We have had issues with savservice freezing the PC after login. If the savservice could be started automatically but delayed that would solve our problem. Currently we have savservice set to manually start. An hour after login the update feature checks to make sure all services are running and if not savservice gets started. If admistrators could CHANGE the time frame from and hour down to a few minutes. We wouldn't have a system on our network unprotected for an hour after restart.

    Hello,
    Delaying the startup of any protection based software, especially antivirus software is a very bad idea, lot's of malware takes advantage of systems at startup so delaying by even a few seconds can result in bad consequences. If you are having issues with machines on startup you should raise a support request whereupon the issue can be investigated.

    Darren.
