Setup file name does not match name in instructions

Recommended Posts

This may seem pedantic, but I haven't used MalwareBytes before and want to use the trial.

When I go to this page, I'm told in step 1 that I should expect a file with a filename with the word "consumer" in it.

However, the file I get is has some kind of ID number instead of that word, and a much longer string of numbers after the build number than I'd expect.

Perhaps the instruction simply needs updating (and a video I saw on this site which said the same thing), but I want to make sure all is okay before proceeding?

Downloading from that link gives me mb3-setup-consumer-3.8.3.2965-1.0.613-1.0.11983.exe But whatever the file name downloaded from the link you posted will be legit.

From that same link, I get the file named below, that being said, they are both correct.

mb3-setup-37469.37469-3.8.3.2965-1.0.613-1.0.11270.exe
