Add Malwarebytes to a second desktop

Recommended Posts

Hi TDoremi :)

If you want to install Malwarebytes on a computer that is currently infected, the best thing to do would be to seek assistance in the Malware Removal Help section. This way, you'll be able to download and install Malwarebytes on your other computer without problem. Be aware that you are free to download and install the free version of Malwarebytes on your other computer (assuming it's for personal use). So you can download the setup from Malwarebytes website, move it on your infected computer and launch it from there. However, Malwarebytes have a special installer (using Chameleon technology) for users who wants to install and run Malwarebytes on systems that are already infected.


In order to seek assistance in the Malware Removal Help section, all you have to do is follow the instructions in the thread below, and start a new thread over there, providing the logs and other information asked.

Good luck!

Hi, @TDoremi:

I agree with @Aura about getting a bit of free, expert help cleaning the infected computer.

To answer your original question a bit more directly, if you have a 1-PC consumer/home license (either lifetime or subscription), it can be legally activated on only one system at a time.

So, in order to install MBAM Premium on a second computer, you would need EITHER to TRANSFER the license from one system to the other (you can run MBAM Free on the other computer), OR to buy a second license for the second computer (if you want MBAM Premium on BOTH systems).
