I tried to install Malware bytes, only to get message "Subscription expired." Is that something new?

Is there an alternative free adware program I can use.?

Hi,

 

Nothing new It only means that you already used the trial period and now you need to purchase or revert to the Free version.

I keep getting notified that my trial has expired, how do I revert to the free version?

SleepyDude: Thanks. I <<tried>> to DL the free version but was denied because my "subscription ran out." I must have done something wrong; will try again. I'm not banned from getting the free version again, am I?

SleepyDude: All is fixed! Even though I get a screen saying "Subscription has expired." I hit the Scan button and the app WORKED.

As they say, "I'm an old man and have seen many troubles and most of them never happened." Thanks for your help. .... Batpark

When I open malwarebytes I get: (1) a message "Your subsciption has expired.". (2) a button to purchase Premium, and (3) a button "Scan."

 

Hitting the SCAN button starts a scan even though I did not upgrade to Premium,

Yes, that's exactly what I see. I don't recall ever asking for the Free Trial. What I did not realize is that my Free Malwarebyte was still active all along.

 

Now that I have scanned with it and deleted all those bad files my system is running really well.  Thanks for your help.   ... batpark
