I have chosen to remain with the original Malwarebytes. My online time/use does not justify spending money on the big guns. I'm quite happy with the original and know that at some point I'll not see the same support for this version. By then I'm liable not to be on the internet any more anyway.

Why am I posting? I'm begging someone to do something about the nagging popup that shows up every day wanting me to upgrade. I'm over it now, I've made my decision, I'm perfectly aware that I can upgrade later if I want. But nagging everyday is causing me to second guess my reasons for continuing with Malwarebytes at all.

To disable your Malwarebytes v2 from upgrading to MB3 do the steps below.

1. First You need to disable Program Updates, Go to Settings -> Update Settings and Uncheck -> Check for program updates when checking for database updates


2. Next Verify that you have Enable self-protection module Off - Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Enable self-protection module


3. Lastly go to folder C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and delete file mbam-setup.exe (its a hidden folder so you will need to show hidden folders)


4. That should do it... (you can reboot your computer to verify it won't nag you again)
