real time protection stops and you are back to manual 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
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
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.
