'Cracked' version of Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

Whilst installing a wireless router for my brother today, I noticed that my 14 year old nephew had the MBAM protection module running in the system tray of his laptop. When I mentioned this, he casually told me that he had downloaded MBAM from some 'warez' site. I told him that this was not a good idea, and I offered to buy him his own licensed version. I uninstalled this 'warez' version of MBAM, and downloaded the latest free version from the MBAM website. But when I installed it, it came up as a fully licensed version again with the ID and Key showing in the 'About' tab.

Is there any way I can get rid of this 'warez' license information and replace it with a genuine license which I will buy for him?

Here's the link to the cleaner http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-clean.exe

The instructions for uninstall, clean, and reinstall are:

* Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add/Remove programs in the control panel.

* Restart your computer (very important).

* Download and run this utility. mbam-clean.exe

* It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).

* After the computer restarts, Temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here

Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent

Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.

Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray. Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.
