When I purchased Malwarebytes from Dell, I was told that I could use it on up to 5 computers.
What that a false statement? :) :blink:

Thanks for the reply. Makes it very expensive to buy for home use (more than one computer) so will keep with the free. But thanks so much for the prompt reply. I was about to purchase and would have been so disappointed to find I could only install on one.
Cheers!

Look for discounts at Cnet Downloads, 10% for 1 program .... and Malwarebytes offers discounts at times.

Hi Lonnieg and welcome to malwarebytes.:)

It depends. How many license did you by? Only one can be used per computer so if Dell told you that, I would ask for a refund as they weren't honest about it. Personally, I have been displeased with there support as they don't listen.

I'm not a staff member just another Malwarebytes' user.

Advice: Hug your dog, cat etc everyday! :)
