Heimdal Security

heimdal-security-logoHeimdal Security has offered DCT readers five (5) licenses for their Pro Security program. Each license is good for three years and currently valued at $87.99 (US) each. This software can run along side your current Antivirus and/or Anti-malware program without conflict.

“Heimdal PRO doesn’t rely on analyzing malware’s code or its behavior. Instead, Heimdal focuses on:
  1. Closing vulnerabilities and mitigating exploits by keeping vulnerable 3rd party programs (Flash, Java, browsers, etc.) always up-to-date. According to US-CERT, that stops more than 85% of attacks targeted towards vulnerable software.
  2. Blocking incoming attacks, ransomware, banking trojans, phishing attempts, drive-by attacks, etc. – by scanning & filtering all your HTTP, HTTPS & DNS traffic.
  3. Blocking malware’s communication to cybercriminal-controlled servers, in order to prevent botnet inclusions & communication, data leakage, ransomware dial back, etc. This is actually the reactive part of Heimdal PRO, protecting from data exfiltration, encryption key download, etc., even if the malware succeeded in infecting the computer.”

This contest has expired, but you can still read all about this great program at Heimdal Security Review And Giveaway

  1. I started in 1986 on a tandy 1,000.
    This has be baffled. I currently am running a HP Pavilion s5302f.
    When I updated to Win-10, the boot had problems. The notice would say my fan was not working, and turns off.
    Looking at the fan, it is working and after three restarts, it opens Win 10. HP states on line they do not have a BIOS update for HP Windows 7.

    Do you know of any work around for this problem.

    1. Hi Jerry,

      The only thing that comes to mind would be to change the fan settings in UEFI/BIOS to manual rather than automatic, at least until you can figure out a proper solution to the problem.

      Here’s a note on the HP site:

      HP does not provide Windows 10 drivers on HP.com for HP computers sold prior to August 2013. Microsoft has made most of the component drivers for these products available via Device Manager once the product is running Windows 10 with an active Internet connection. To see if your HP computer was tested to work in Windows 10, go to HP Products Tested with Windows 10.

      Here’s the link for that page: https://support.hp.com/ca-en/product/hp-pavilion-slimline-s5300-desktop-pc-series/4079861/model/4196220/document/c03785459/

      Windows 10 does have some driver and chipset issues with older computers. Perhaps the DCT Forum would be the place to start asking your questions? Somebody there may be able to help you. Here’s the link to the DCT Forums: https://davescomputertips.com/forum/

      Good luck,
