Yes John I looked for that box each time I downloaded it and from different sites including the official MBAM site but it didn't give that option.

That is strange...
I've never seen the trial option checkbox not displayed.
The MBAM (Home User ) installer is the same for all versions - Free, Pro, Trial.
The difference is if a user accepts the trial or enters a license key - to enable the PRO features.
I can't test an install now as I have MBAM Pro on all my systems...

Just to be sure - there is no download available directly from MBAM...the most "directed" download site is to CNET (download.com)...
Where exactly did you download from?

Just a thought.
Maybe the trial option isn't displayed if a user Reinstalls, and chose the trial in a previous install...
Just guessing here.

If that's the case, maybe using the mbam-clean utility would help...

IT's ok I found another way around it and got the box to untick this time.

Thanks David I just found a way after clearing it yet again with Revo

Forgot to mention this was clean install of 7 so I am the only one who has tried putting it on.

Cool!
Glad you got it sorted and thanks for posting the solution.
FYI, I always use the mbam-clean.exe utility to uninstall MBAM whenever i need to.
I do use REVO, but not for security programs...

Quote:
  • Download and run this utility. mbam-clean.exe
  • It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).
  • After the computer restarts, Temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here
    Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent
    Launch the program and set the Protection and activation. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
    Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray. Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.

Thanks David yes I always uninstall AV's with the appropriate uninstaller and I always check the regedit HKEYS > Software as that Norton particularly always seems to leave a ref to Symantec in there (both HKEY's - USER and LOCAL MACHINE)

Here is how it worked for me.
I was using the free Malwarebytes Anti Malware for a long time.
I received a option to upgrade to Pro with a trial period and I accepted.
I use it for a while and then mail a check.
I received a email that they had processed the check and gave me the proper registration number. I registered the program and the programs works.

And if one opts not to go with the paid version after the trial ends...
...does the stuff that Malwarebytes has running all the time stop running all of the time?

To the best of my knowledge when you go back to the free version of Malwarebytes Anti Malware all active protection stops.
I don't know if you have to uninstall the Pro version and install the free version again.

Malwarebytes Database Version
I just ran the updater in Malwarebytes, and was surprised at the change in version numbers, as can be seen in the screenshot. I suppose they may just have decided to use a different system, but I'm wondering if it might indicate something more nefarious, like someone else slipping into the picture?
