Hello-

I was wondering, I downloaded this program and selected the free DOWNLOAD and it ran the scan, but at the end it wanted me to purchase or register before it would clean the computer? I followed your download link ....

{The first thing we want to do is to download and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) which you probably can't do....that's why you're here.

Any help would be appreciated -- I thought it was free...?

Thanks, Michelle

It is free and it will clean your system for no charge. The paid for version includes the ability to be permanently on and scanning your system, whereas the free is an on demand scan only

Ok, well, what did I do wrong then? I downloaded the program from that site ran a scan, and now it wants me to pay to remove the things found?

I've downloaded this program to other computers several times, and never had this issue? I even clicked free version when I downloaded?
