This is often seen if you are using a USB modem for your broadband connection.If the reason shown indicates a more significant problem than Sophos just needing a reboot then see the entry Sophos isn't running properly. The symptoms are usually that you see a red cross every time you start up the computer, but if you try a manual update, it succeeds and the red cross disappears.
