A boxed version of MBAM Pro comes with an installation disk and a card with the installation key printed on it. I would copy the key over to a text file to keep on your computer so it can get backed up (you do make backups, don't you?) and keep the card itself in a safe place. I posted instructions on the other thread on how to transfer a license but, if your drive does go belly up and/or you do have problems moving the license, just contact MBAM from their website and they will help you out.

Btw, don't bother to use the installation disk. If you already have the free version installed, just put in your installation key to unlock the Pro version. If you don't have anything installed yet, download the latest version from online; you would have to do that anyway since the version on the disk will not be the latest one.

I'm just saying that if the computer fails, it may not be deactivated correctly and it may be impossible to move to another computer without requesting Malwarebytes for help.

Good grief, you're going to worry yourself into an early grave! Even if the computer fails and if you have to get help from MBAM, it's not that big a deal. As long as you have a copy of your license key somewhere (as I mentioned earlier, you should keep backups of it), you will not lose the use of it, no matter what.

I am very tempted to go pro with Malwarebytes I have RoboScan AV and Winpatrol running so would I benefit from going Pro ?

Yes if they don't have real time protection. Maybe if they do because Malwarebytes PRO is advertised to stop zero day exploits.

I believe so,
The pro version provides real time protection,
So chances are it would block a threat instead of finding one after the fact,
Are these other utilities free versions ?
If so I would take the pro version all the way to the checkout line

Yes that's what real time protection does. It gets what the av doesn't.

Both RoboScan and Winpatrol provides real time protection is there any documentation on compatibility ?
