    Well, I didn't see any other way to do it. It gave me an option to pay and option for free version. I downloaded the free version like you said, but it says it's a trial.

    No. Everything is green. But, I did download the free version. Maybe they are giving me the trial version for free right now.

    I'm using Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Pro together in Windows 8.1. They work very well together. Very low overhead, great protection. I have had no virus or malware infections since I started using both. If I try to click on a questionable website, I get a warning message.

    I recently tried Kaspersky 2014 along with Malwarebytes Pro. Kaspersky often was taking 100% of the CPU or Hard Disk and no scanning was going on. The same thing happened with Kaspersky on Windows 7 and my Dell Inspiron 1545. After about a week, in each case, I got rid of Kaspersky and re-installed Microsoft Security Essentials or Defender. Our cable provider offers Kaspersky 2014 for free, but it just takes up too many resources for what you get.

    I just uninstalled mine and installed new download and all is the same as before. Don't know what happened with your's but if you have a chance to evaluate it, go ahead.

    How do I need to evaluate it? Uninstall and Reinstall?

    I fixed it. I had to disable the trial. It's now like yours.

    I just had reason to install myself and I also almost missed the pre checked box to take up the pro trial, wish they didn't do that sort of thing
