    Welcome to the Forums patricia2626!

    From what little I remember about Heimdall (haven't used it in a year or so) you SHOULD be ok. Keep in mind that I used the free version and paired it with ........ geez..... either Avast, Bitdefender or Panda A/V's. Sorry I can't be more specific as when I tried Heimdall I was looking for totally new protection package. But it played well with whichever one I had at the time. Back up everything important (which you should be doing anyway), make a restore point and try it.

    The offline Malwarebytes is inconsequential to the rest.

    I have a layer security (always) and the most important thing that I do when I layer security apps is that I "exclude" each security folder/process on all of the security applications I have. On your part, do exclude Malwarebytes in Sophos Home and Heimdal and vice versa. That way those 3 will not interrupt or block each other out.
