Updating bios on dell

The MB folks got it sorted out within a few hours and I was then able to update the MB installation and carry on. Hi, every developer of third party AV's tells you how well integrated into the system it is.. Malwarebytes uses technology developed some time ago and now superseded by MS, it does promote itself as a total protection suite, and you have no choice, the full version is downloaded and you have to opt out of it, after a period of time, to continue to use the free version.(which is only an malware detection and removal util) The fact is MS offer a better developed protection suite, the argument that somebody has used such and such for years without problems, can also apply to the millions who use defender without problems.

The spring update contains new security features and will increasingly make third party AV's less attractive, and users will begin to learn they don't need them.

Another thing that has struck me here is that according to msinfo32 the BIOS mode on the desktop is now "legacy".

The mode on my Dell laptop (same age as the desktop, and nearly identical software outfit) is UEFI.

It is supposed to deal with some kinds of threats that lie outside the scope of standard AV programs.

This wiki How teaches you how to update the BIOS software for a Windows computer.

lang=en I didn't find it anywhere in Settings (maybe I didn't look in the right place? The BIOS version showed as A12, dated 2/5/2018, which is the most recent issue and the one that contains the mitigation for the "Spectre" vulnerability.

EDIT - I just ran a scan at the Dell Support site for this computer.

Download the file, save it to your desktop, restart your laptop in Safe Mode, then execute the the file you saved earlier, when it is done, restart the laptop normally.

Visit Stack Exchange I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a vista laptop, but Dell is providing the BIOS update in format currently my bios version is A09 but on the driver download site the latest version of bios is A011.
