Thought I would post to let you all know that my MWB premium lifetime license has been revoked by MWB for being fake,it was purchased 3years ago from eBay,I had no idea it was fake,rep tells me thousands of users have the same code

According to the MWB rep it's fake if not purchased from MWB,it is £29.99 for a year now

I tried to update my malwarebytes premium to the latest version last night but was refused access. MBAM stated that my licence, a lifetime one bought on ebay, had too many devices connected to it. I have contacted the original seller to ask for a replacement that will work, however I'm not holding my breath in anticipation.

Sometimes windows updates interferes with malwarebytes and is classed as having to many devices connected to it.

I have had that problem a couple of times. Running their repair tool solved it for a while till the next Windows update.

I had to prove to Malwarebytes that I had a valid version of Malwarebytes before they would let me install it again.

Maybe it means you are running the same one on different computers, Not sure if you do that or not. I used to with no problems but not anymore.

Best of luck hope you get it resolved. They will tell you that you can only buy it from Malwarebytes but that is a load of rubbish. Every security company has resellers who are entitled to sell it.
