I don't know if C|Net actually provides the current version of MBAM or if that is a typo since the current version is 1.46. Regardless, it is likely a rogue that is giving the message to purchase the program. MBAM is free for personal use.

I suggest you try the random installer from here:

It runs as explorer.exe and the Window name is random.

The C|Net link may be legit but it is extremely out of date and would require a hefty update.

Win 7 32 Home Premium, Win 7 64 Pro, Win 8.1, Win 10

It's basically whatever you feel comfortable with.

I have McAfee (which came with the system) and MSE (Which I trust more then McAfee)

The reason for that being that MSE Caught a couple of worms/viruses going around the school that McAfee didn't.
