    Sophos runs quietly in the background, unnoticeable. That is, unless your computer is really lame, in which case it can slow your computer to a crawl.

    I have two Linux computers:

    * One is about a year old, 64-bit, 4 GB of RAM, running Linux Mint 18.2 xfce 64-bit. I haven’t even noticed that Sophos is running, except one time when it detected some malware.

    * The other is from 2008, 32-bit, 2 GB of RAM, running Linux Mint 18.2 xfce 32-bit. Sophos slowed this computer to a crawl, so I uninstalled Sophos. Now the computer runs at an acceptable speed.
