How to Automatically Reset Your Malwarebytes Trial

Are you using the free version of Malwarebytes and frustrated that the trial version is only available for a limited time? Well, worry no more because we've got a solution for you! Here's how you can keep your free trial going by automatically resetting it every time you turn on your computer:

Make sure Malwarebytes is not running while you're doing this, or you may lose your free trial and have to completely uninstall it.

  1. Disable Malwarebytes from your startup apps: Before we start, you need to disable Malwarebytes from your startup apps. To do this, follow this tutorial:
  2. Download the self-extracting archive: Download the self-extracting archive from here: The password is "Trial".
  3. Create a new folder: In the "C:\Program Files\" folder, create a new folder called "Malwarebytes Reset".
  4. Move the files: Move the "vbs" and "bat" files from the extracted folder to the "Malwarebytes Reset" folder you just created.
  5. Open Task Scheduler: Search for "Task Scheduler" in the Start menu and open it.
  6. Create a new task: Click on "Create Task" in the right-hand panel.
  7. Name the task: Give the task a name, such as "Malwarebytes Trial Reset".
  8. Set the trigger: Click on the "Triggers" tab, then click on "New". Choose when you want the task to start (e.g. "At log on") and set the frequency (e.g. "Daily").
  9. Set the action: Click on the "Actions" tab, then click on "New". Browse to the "Malwarebytes Reset" folder and select the "Malwarebytes.vbs" file. Click "OK".
  10. Save the task: Click "OK" to save the task.

That's it! The scheduled task will run the "Malwarebytes.vbs" file every time you start your computer or at the interval you've set, which will reset your Malwarebytes trial.

Do not rename any of the files, as this could cause the reset process to fail.
