USB drives scanning automatically.
We need an option that allows USB drives to be automatically scanned upon insertion.
The we will scan on-access of files, there is little benefit to scanning on insert and lots of downsides (someone plugs in a large USB drive and triggers a scan that impacts performance)

At least a "virusses in autorun.inf" test should be possible on plugging in a device MS Windows is able to autostart from. Don't know if that meets the intentions of the initial poster.

I already miss this option from Kaspersky! It forced a full scan of all DVD, CD, USB devices. I realize that Sophos scans upon folder/file access but I prefer the device to be fully scanned upon detection. You can always add an admin option to bypass the scan.
should be "basic" of an AntiVirus solution.
it is not always possible to generally block eg. unknown USB Sticks
