    2. Reboot into safe mode (msconfig.exe)
    3. Stop Sophos Antivirus service if it is running (sc stop SAVservice)
    4. Import tamper protection registry entries
    5. Reboot into normal mode (msconfig.exe)
    6. Uninstall Sophos (appwiz.cpl or "C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Endpoint Agent\uninstallgui.exe")
