What to do to convert your trial version of MalwareBytes AntiMalware Pro back to the free edition. If you are not careful during program updates to un-check the little box that says “Try 14 Day Trial of The Pro Version” you will end up with the trial version of this program and it will eventually expire and start to popup annoying messages and you will need to follow the below instructions in order to revert back to the free edition.
- Download and run mbam-clean.exe from HERE.
- It will ask to restart your computer; please allow it to do so – this is very important!
- After the computer restarts, download the latest version of Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware from HERE, then temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and run the installer. (Ignore all ‘Recommended’ or ‘Sponsored’ software which are prominently displayed on the mirror sites — they are ads and MBAM does not have any association with them.)
- If you only want to run MBAM Free, then un-tick the option for the free trial of PRO during the setup. Also when the program performs an “Program Update” be sure to un-tick this every time.
