Yeah the porn site mode real time protection stops and you are back to manual scans.

I have the paid version, since I won it in a contest. Prior to that Iused the free version. The only difference is the real time protection, as mentioned above. Just make frequent scans to make sure that you are clean.

Those types of sites are training films.

With the Pro version you can set up a schedule for automatic updates and scans.

Which would put you worse off then if you never tried the trail. The stuff would keep running all of the time (but it does not good) until you uninstall Malwarebytes.

According to the last post in this 20 January 2012 thread:
How to stop trial early? - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help - Malwarebytes Forum
Quote:
Also we are listening! An End Trial button is going to be included in a future version.
I do not see that button during the trial period... so one must uninstall Malwarebytes to end the trial early.

By 19 August 2012:
Keeps telling me it has expired - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help - Malwarebytes Forum
Quote:
When the notification comes up stating that it is expired, click on the tooltip balloon message. It should open up a window with the option to End trial, click on that option and this shouldn't occur again.

Please let us know if you have further issues.
One can hope that this End Trial button will truly revert Malwarebytes back to the free state - without the service and the apps running all of the time.

This was just a curiosity. I'm not so curious as to want to test it thru an entire trial. I uninstalled an old version of Malwarebytes from a friend's computer after seeing the notice pop up that the trial had ended and then I re-installed Malwarebytes without opting into the trial. I was just wondering if someone had tried to revert to the free mode via another path.

Your can right click the tray icon and remove the check marks and it should stop all the Trail features until it expires.

Thanks. I had not clicked around enough to find those. Unchecking them and then restarting does stop all but the tiny scheduler service. If that service is manually stopped and disabled, starting the Malwarebytes app will restart and re-enable it. One must manually delete any scheduled events to prevent the Malwarebytes app from restarting and re-enabling the scheduler service.

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.
Yes Bear I have a disk I bought ages ago but the full version doesn't play with Kaspersky too well or else I would use the full on stuff.

I uninstalled Malwarebytes today as it kept picking up a Trojan.Zaccess virus which turned out to be a False/Positive.
I found this out when I D/L Sophos Free Virus Removal tool, which picked up three other viruses. After some googling I found out that Trojan.Zaccess was a False/Positive.

Malwarebytes Database Version
