Malwarebytes not playing

Have a problem similar to what happened to my brothers machine just a while ago.

Have a machine for set up and I have downloaded MBAM now at least eight times and try as I may I end up with the trial version.

None of the downloads giver me the untick the trial version I am obviously doing something wrong though I am lost for a reason.

Have tried the official site with email, Cnet, Filehippo etc etc

Any ideas please before I give this one a miss?

Try uninstalling malwarebytes using RevoUninstaller . Choose Advanced mode let it scan for left for over registry keys select all then click delete . Once the delete has been completed click on the Next button and let it scan for left over files and folders do the same as you did with the registry select all click on delete then next and restart after it says successfully uninstalled .

Have you tried using the MBAM clean utility for the uninstall?

When done installing MBAM, uncheck: Enable free trial of Malwarebytes

Otherwise, you will be going in circles....

Set up Malwarebytes PRO
How often should I setup MBAM PRO to scan and how often should I change my antivirus to scan? I scan using my antivirus every day since I am delusional that I might get a infection. Side note: I finally will get to start using the software that I reccomend but don't use. Yippee!!
