I have an issue with the Exploit Protection function. I was recently advised to install malware protection. I decided I'd first test a few free services and decide on the best one. I installed Malwarebytes, and shortly after uninstalled to try Microsoft's malware protection service.
I had difficultly with the uninstall in that I was unable to remove the mbae64.dll file ("access denied"). I used the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Complete Removal Tool to remove the file, success! I was able to delete the file and folder.
I later decided I'd prefer to use Malwarebytes 3.0.6., after the reinstall, I've noticed that the Exploit Protection service is off. When I attempt to start the service manually, it goes from "Starting" back to off. Any advice please?
My system is: Windows 10 Version 1607 (Build 14393.693). In conjunction with Malwarebytes 126.96.36.1999, I am also using AVG AntiVirus Free Edition, vers. 16.141.7998; and SmadAV 2017, vers. 11.2.
