  1. Free alternative to Malwarebytes Premium?


    Malwarebytes Premium again and again protects me from computer nasties from the web that Windows Defender simply does not.

    Malicious websites etc.

    I only have the Premium trial. I can not afford to pay for a Premium licence. Is there a free alternative to Malwarebytes Premium that works just as well?

    :)

    Malwarebytes Premium icon no longer in System Tray after latest update

    Yes sorry I did mean premium. I did correct in my last post but you must have read it before the correction.. It seems lots of people in the malwarebytes forums are having some troubles with it staying on. I suggest you post with malwarebytes or look through
    their forum to see if there is a solution.

    Free alternative to Malwarebytes Premium?

    How do I get rid of the Malwarebytes Premium trial?

    I've used Malwarebytes for years, when wanting to do a scan for viruses. I use the free version, running it manually when I want to. My wife recently performed an AV scan using Malwarebytes when something suspicious was going on with my PC and I wasn't there. Apparently she choose the Premium trial. I don't want the Premium version, so I uninstalled it. I thought that would take care of it.

    And I was wrong.

    I installed the free version - making certain that it was the free version, from MalwareBytes' website. The instant I got into it, it immediately popped up the message, "Your Premium trail expires in 3 days". I do not want this at all.

    I'm sure some will say, "Hey, just wait 4 days and its gone." Well, remember what I said about my wife pressing the wrong button when running it? This PC is used by all members of my family - I have to be certain that no one else comes along and selected the "Upgrade Now" button.

    So, how do I get rid of this Premium trial for good?
