You must be downloading from the wrong link - Malwarebytes free version does not charge you for removing threats.

I agree with Sea Urchin, I have used MBAM/ Malwarebytes/ Antimalware many times and it has never at any time demanded money, the only thing you have to pay for is if you want active protection which will/should stop malware installing in the first place.

I to have malwarebytes,and never had to pay.
