Windows 7: Malwarebytes - Free Update - Do I Need to Uninstall?

Malwarebytes - Free Update - Do I Need to Uninstall?

I just installed a 'free update' to Malwarebytes. When the update finished I was informed I was running a 'free trial' of Malwarebytes Premium. I don't want that!

I searched and was directed to this URL:

Access Denied

It told me how to deactivate the premium trial. I followed the instructions and found I was in an endless loop.

Is my only option to uninstall Malwarebytes?

I don't want to live with nag popups. I don't want my machine cluttered with trash left behind because Windows Uninstall does not do a complete job.

If so, does the uninstall require the use of a 'special procedure.'

thanks,
baumgrenze

Why not, that is one of the best Malware programs available!
Free trial is Premium real-time protection, excellent.
It reverts to free after 30 days.
Here's a screenshot for you.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

My concern is a reported conflict between Avast and MWB_Premium.

the conflicts will not happen when using the very latest versions of both Avast and Malwarebytes Premium [upgrade both of them if you don't have the recent versions installed; just do NOT use them both at the same time]


here were some forum topics about that (which were reported about a year ago):

Avast IS in combination with Malwarebytes Premium?
