Malwarebytes trial expired box pop up in taskbar.

Client started getting a Malwarebytes popup next to their clock in the system tray. Worried about this being Malware itself I didn’t click on it. I uninstalled the version of Malwarebytes that was currently installed and reinstalled the a new downloaded free version.

I also ran CCleaner to clean the registry. It didn’t find anything related to MalwareBytes. I then re-installed MalwareBytes.

What I should have done is in this Forum post. MalwareBytes makes a cleaner for uninstalling their product. If the customer continues to get the pop up I will log back in and uninstall the current version >> run the cleaner >> re-install a new download of MalwareBytes. Below is the link I found.

I hope this helps someone else.
