Hello JamieM908,

Yes Malwarebytes will revert to free version on its trial ending, all realtime protection will cease, as will auto updates. The free version is still worth keeping for ocassional scans...

Delete KVRT.exe from your Desktop, or the folder it was saved to, also delete this folder if still present: C:\KVRT_Data

Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Downloads\FRST64.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST64 to uninstall

That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...

Next,

Remove all System Restore Points: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/33593-delete-system-restore-points-windows-10-a.html#option2

Create clean fresh Restore Point: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/create-system-restore-point

Run Windows Disk Clean Up Utility - https://neosmart.net/wiki/disk-cleanup/

From there you should be good to go...

Next,
