Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Protecting Internet Explorer when I dont use it. in Anti-Exploit Beta Posted May 12, 2015 Yes I can see in the logs the couple of instances where your Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) was launched by svchost.exe. This is probably some software or PC configuration that is launching your IE to perform some background task. It doesn't mean it is malicious, just that it is relying on IE to perform some task. There's two things I can think of doing here to make this go away:1- Disable the system tray balloon notifications2- Disable the MBAE shield for Internet Explorer Personally I would do (1) so that IE is still protected, just in case. Also you could hunt down the application/task that is launching your IE in the background. It is probably some scheduled task or part of some application's update checks. If you're interested in investigating I suggest you start with Autoruns and ProcessMonitor. PS: Moving this to the Questions sub-forum as it is not a product bug.Thank you for the swift response. I have no problem with the notifications themselves since I like to stay aware of how my computer is doing, I will probably try to find out during what circumstances iexplore.exe is launched because im paranoid. If I were to try to investigate how exactly would I go about doing this?
