Reset scanned file checksums

The list of scanned file checksums is reset when a Sophos Anti-Virus update occurs, or when you restart your computer. The list is then rebuilt with new data as files are scanned by Sophos Anti-Virus.

You can reset the list of scanned file checksums from within Sophos Endpoint Security and Control if you do not want to restart your computer.

To reset scanned file checksums:

  1. Click Home > Anti-virus and HIPS > Configure anti-virus and HIPS > Configure > On-access scanning.
  2. On the Scanning tab, click Purge cache.
