My friend has downloaded the free version of Malwarebytes but it keeps saying that his free trial has come to an end. Please can someone help me help him to get the 'proper' Malwarebytes that is free and isn't a trial?
I think this may be a case of clicking buttons without reading what's on the screen. When you get to the last screen of the setup program for the free version there are 3 check boxes, all of which are ticked:
Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO
Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
All your friend needs to do is to remove the tick from the "Enable free trial" box before clicking the "Finish" button.
Mind you. I've had the free version for years and got a message a couple of weeks ago saying that my free trial version was ending. I just clicked it off and haven't seen it since, and it still seems to be working.
