This is a runtime error. This error occurred when your application program failed to lode some of its important files. The best way to solve error is to stop installation this software and replaces this driver software with its new version if available.

Other option is this error is about missing .dll. So you need to identify that missing dll and then install that dll from other source. You can search missing dll and install it in here. Go to run option then type “regsvr32 c:windowssystem32dllfile “.

Also you can download a run time error repair tools in order to solve this problem.

You have registry error because your registry doesn't have right permissions for that job. Your system is set in a way that Sophos don't like and he thinks that he can be modified by another app. You can't install or even upgrade if you don't have access to the registry.

Here is what you can do:

1. Go to the registry entry and search for HKLMSoftware

2. Click with your right mouse button on registry key -> permissions

3. Put Administrative rules and edit permissions. Give you full control

4. Re Install Sophos

This should work.
