Here you go: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

 

Just remember to uncheck the Enable free trial of MBAM Pro option:

Note: A 14-day trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO is available as an option when first installing the free version so all users can test the real-time protection component for a period of two weeks. When the limited time period expires those features will be deactivated and locked. Enabling the Protection Module feature again requires registration and purchase of a license key. If you continue to use the free version, there is no requirement to buy a license...you can just use it as a stand-alone scanner. Users who have previously completed the trial will not be prompted to start the trial upon upgrade or reinstallation.

If you don't want to test it out, then do as Union_Thug indicated.

IObit malware fighter is a brilliant free malware remover,

 

its one of the best i have come across,

 

i find IObits advanced system care 6 is brilliant and this runs along side IObit malware figher, i find these 2 are all you need, plus advanced system care sorts all sorts of problems out and really speeds any computer up, im currently testing the advanced system care 7 Beta version as that seems to do a lot more, i know all the computers ive installed these on are working a whole lot better and much quicker than most other laptops and computers,

 

i find norton and avg tend to slow things down so if you use microsoft security essentials then use IObit malware fighter then that does a very good job, then i use advanced system care 7 to do a scan each day or each week and that keeps things running at their best, plus it has many other features that most will find very helpful and will really help speed a sytem up,

In regards to IOBit (EvonSoft.com) products, please read:Although, the Malwarebytes team no longer has an issue with IObit, the vendor's dubious methods would not warrant a recommendation from me to use or trust their software. Further, IOBIT has even been placed into the Installers Hall of Shame.

Advanced SystemCare is an optimization suite and registry cleaner by IObit that purports to improve performance, make repairs and tune up a computer.

Advanced SystemCare Free...Why waste money on expensive "registry cleaners" to fix your PC when Advanced SystemCare Free will repair, tune, and maintain it for you for free


Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.

There is no doubt that Iobit is the culprit and it is only trying to be a clone of Malwarebytes or some thing like that.So, why opt for the thing which is trying to be a clone, when the original Malwarebytes is available as a free version and the major advantage of Malarebytes is it does not have any hidden or unwanted programs or applications like toolbars, pups, pops etc. I just forgot to mention the main thing that there is nothing like Registry Cleaner.I can guarantee you that they can only increase the problems or destroy your registry completely if you use these Registry Cleaners. thankyou.

You're welcome.

Edit: I noticed you edited your post to remove the question about ThreatFire which was in the email notification I received. I removed that info from my reply here and included it in the new topic you started.
