Annoying trial message

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the free version from the Malwarebytes site.


I looked in the Protection tab and see there is an option to buy the Pro version  and another option to try a 14 day free trial. I did not choose either of these options.


I keep getting an annoying pop up message on the taskbar saying that my PC is not protected because my trial has expired and has 0 days remaining.


Can someone help please.

Thanks both. I think this latest download must have changed as the option you have outlined in red is no longer there, only the other two options and I didn’t miss to check or uncheck a box.


I was clicking around what I had downloaded to try to find out what to do and as I mentioned above I clicked on the Protection tab and in there were options to buy or take a trial and definitely appeared that I have the free version.


The pop up is a bit strange as it says the trial has 0 days remaining when I'd only just installed it.


I clicked on the pop up and another box came up with options to buy or trial but also a 3rd option to cancel the trial so I clicked on that and it’s all gone and I just have my frre version.


Thanks for help.

Thanks, I downloaded it from the Malwarebytes own site and the free version is working fine now thank you so I do not want to disturb it.


I would like to buy the Pro version but have not done so before as I was told that it would conflict with my Avast.  Would it please?

If not I will buy it.


I have used it for a very long time and do like it.

Thank you I did not explain my question very well - sorry.


I should have said that  I run the free Avast and the free MBAM.


I understand that the free Avast is running in real time and I run an MBAM Quick Scan once a week.


If I changed to MBAM Pro I understand that would then be running in real time also and my question is would there then be any conflict?


Thanks for help

Thanks, I will buy it then.


As I have said, I have used MBAM for many years and I do like it so I am sure I shall enjoy the Pro version.


I should have asked if it is a one PC only purchase? I have 2 Home Pcs and 1 for travelling.


Thanks again for help.

Hi, mygoose:


Licenses for home computers for personal use are currently valid for "lifetime" (no renewal required), but are valid for use only on ONE computer at a time.

1 license - 1 computer.

However, the license can be transferred, e.g. if you purchase a new computer.


Also, there is a discount for multiple licenses purchased during the same transaction.

So, if you want a license for each of your two computers, the best time to purchase them is at the same time.


Hope this helps,
