Security log - 529 -Sophos_AU_Client

Hi,
After un-installing Sophos security centre on my small business server I am receiving hundreds of errors:

Logon Failure:
       Reason:            Unknown user name or bad password
       User Name:      Sophos_AU_Client
       Domain:            Server-Name
       Logon Type:      3
       Logon Process:      NtLmSsp
       Authentication Package:      NTLM
       Workstation Name:      Server-Name
       Caller User Name:      -
       Caller Domain:      -
       Caller Logon ID:      -
       Caller Process ID:      -
       Transited Services:      -

I have checked this link http://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/article/14567.html but because I uninstalled the program the registry entries are not there. Also none of my client computers have there sophos settings pointing to my server. Any ideas?

It looks like the server itself tries to log on with  the username Sophos_AU_Client. So check if the uninstall left a Sophos service running on your server...

Ok  I have figured it out. Sophos AV auto-date settings are pointing to \\server\sophos\sav...(this was created by the security console) and is using sophos_AU_Client as its username. but when I try to remove update details its all greyed out  :(

I'm not sure whether I should open another question because I fixed the above issue by reinstalling sophos anti virus, but now after I did this the following automatic service will not start
 : Sophos message router
Could not start the Sophos message router service on the local computer
error 1053:the service did not respond to the start or control request in timely fasion.

Do you think you could help? I have restarted the server twice but that didnt seem to fix it.

It seems the entire Sophos installation is messed up...

Have a look at this Sophos KB article:

http://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/article/14449.html

But I believe it might be better to call Sophos support. Or you can open a new question and find someone who has a similiar Sophos installation that you can compare to.

Thanks,calling Sophos was the correct thing to do, basically I needed to uninstall Sophos remote management, this was a bit of an obvious thing to do, after the uninstall it the sophos message router automatically disabled, it was also recommended that I re-install Sophos Anti-Virus.
