    I have Win7 and MalwareBytes.

    It is not in my MSCONFI List but it is in my System Tray why?

    And it always tells me that my Trial will be up soon.

    I need the FREE Verson can anyone help me?

    I do not know how many time I try to get it.

    No worries. When the trial period is over, it turns into the FREE version.

    The free version does not actively protect your system. It nice to use as a 'second opinion' if you wish. You do need active protection. What are you using for active protection?

    That's normal.
    The new version no longer relies on the Registry's 'Run' keys to start a component, but instead it now uses services, which is why you won't find it in Msconfig/Startup, even if correctly installed.

    There is only one download type for MalwareBytes now.
    By default, it'll be the 14 trial version.
    But If you decide that you only want to run the free version:
    From the Dashboard click.. Settings >> My Account >> Deactivate Premium Trial.
