Speed up download time

The Sophos Anti-Virus updates on a MacBook Air are incredibly slow. This happens at least once/day when the computer is awakened. So downloading email messages is delayed 5 or 10 minutes while Sophos works. Very frustrating. Is there another way?!!

    Are you using a cabled or wireless connection? Wireless can be flaky and slow.
    What sort of specification is you MacBook Air? MacOS is memory hungry so consider a memory upgrade if possible
    Have you tried running Activeity Monitor during the Sophos Update to see what CPU, Memory and Network resources it is using?
    Do you close applications or just minimise them like lots of Mac users do?
