hi !

I started the trial yesterday, today it´s expired ?

MBAM was installed 120215 (15 feb), and i´ve been using the FREE version since then.

i would really like to try the PRO version, to see how it works together with other antivirusprograms....

I´m currently testing Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP).

please go here and run the tool

http://malwarebytes.org/mbam-clean.exe


once its done running reboot the computer then redownload malwarebytes and disable your anti virus and reinstall mbam and try using the trial again


their exclusions im sure that can be set up but i dont know about FEP but im sure someone knows

Thanks for the reply.
I have already done that, found info here on the forum.
I uninstalled, ran mbam-clean, and cleaned up registry manually, then i reinstalled MBAM.
And now it´s running since yesterday without any errormessages.
Exclusions is no problem, i´ve already found instructions here on MBAM, and entered mutual exclusions for Online Armor, Forefront and MBAM.

The trial on Free Download versions only lasts a short time, just to give you an idea of how it works -
It is not a long term trial, like some other programs.
If you downloaded it 120215 (15 feb), then it will be expired by now -

Yes of course it would have expired now, if i had started the trial 120215 (15 feb) !
But, as the subject says: "started the trial yesterday, today it´s expired ?"...
You´re supposed to get a 30-day trial aren´t you ?
And now when i accidentally hoovered my mouse over the MBAM-icon in the taskbar, i saw a small "ballon" telling me that i have 12 days left on the trial.
This must be a bug...

i´m confused...
i just did a search for some more info, but i can´t find any information regarding the lenght of the trial.
One post in the forum says "14 days", however i thought i read "30 days" somewhere.
How long is the trial-period ?

Which is NOT what you were supposed to do.

Download and run the tool, let it do its job then reboot. After that install a fresh copy of MBam Pro and start the trial. The trial is 30 days.

Unless I stand corrected, the trial is only 14 Days unless they changed something I was not aware of.

No, I think you are correct, I was convinced it was 30 days ( can't see anything on the main site ) but it is stated as 14 days in the forum.

ok, if it is 14 days, then everything is ok.
i just thought i saw 30 days mentioned somewhere.
but it´s a bit weird that it isn´t mentioned on the product-pages....

I know this is an old post, and refering to a different version of Malwarebytes but its from Rubby Ducky (CEO of Malwarebytes) where he mentions the trail and the days, its located HERE.
