Hello to my friends at FreePCHelp...!
I have a quick question regarding the above issue.. It appears that my Malwarebytes Premium trial has expired.. Is there a free MWB program I could install? Please let me know about this and send a link as well for download, if that is an option.. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I think that if the Premium trial period runs out MBAM will defer to the Free option if you don't purchase an activation code.

Starbuck may be able to confirm this for us :)

That is correct..... the premium version does revert to the free version after 14 days.
Basically you lose the realtime scanning and update options.
So you have to manually update MalwareBytes and manually run scans.

You can revert the Premium version to the free version anytime you want.
If you decide that you only want to run the free version:
From the Dashboard click.. Settings >> My Account >> Deactivate Premium Trial.
