Something else?

Thank you,
Jo-Anne

The same thing happened to me There really is no trial version
anymore ---the so-called "trial" is now just an ad for the not-free
version.

Thank you for supporting what I said. I uninstalled Malwarebytes
yesterday. So far so good. I guess I'll look for another program for
when I need to do scans.


I use MSE real time, and have the free Malwarebytes installed, but only
loaded and run once a week.
It's fully up to date and gives no system problems when used like that.

Thank you, Ed. I've read here that you can't get the free Malwarebytes any
more. (That's what I had before Malwarebytes updated with the trial
version that I didn't want.) However, on its webpage
https://www.malwarebytes.com/pricing/ it looks like you can still get the
free version. I'll try going back to that one soon.

But it does happen to some systems.


Thank you, Andy! I uninstalled Malwarebytes yesterday, and so far so
good...

I also got the free trial on an update. Been there and did not like it. It
tended to slow my computer down and I did NOT ask for it.
I'm a bit late with this, sorry.


1.. Launch Malwarebytes. You will see Malwarebytes. | Premium Trial
displayed at the top of the Dashboard.
2.. Go to Settings My Account tab.
3.. Click the Deactivate Premium Trial button. Click Yes, when prompted
with the confirmation window.
4.. Once complete, you will notice that Malwarebytes 3 will revert to FREE
version.

Thank you! I wish I knew to do that before now. I uninstalled the
premium trial version and will look into installing the free version
again. I'm not sure it's available as a download, but the website shows
it...

I have the premium version which I bought before Version 2 and I t never
expires, It has been grandfathered by Malwarebytes and is a lifetime copy.
You don't see that happening too often.

Only those who got a life time lic before they changed over to per month or
year subscriptions came to be.
And a bunch of us said what about us who bought a life time lic?
And then they said users like you and i are grandfathered
