I have been informed from IT that it was caused by plusrun and plus not having digital certificates which I was able to show them that this was not the case. our IT are going back to Sophos for adding the EXE's to their whitelist. Hopefully this will resolve permanently but in the interim they have removed the Intercept X from the pc's and lo and behold yippee I have the app running again. Thanks all.
I must say I am surprised. Why would the same AV block the EXE on some
machines and not others? If you find out what was different between the
machines, please do post a follow-up as I'm sure AV's will "byte" us
again at some point so every bit of knowledge helps...
