Just found this thread after having Stopped Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit for the past few months. Windows XP SP3 and Fx ESR. I couldn't even run a Batch (Command) file that simply invoked an old DOS program with a parameter, namely \dclip41\dclip towers.dbf.
However reverting to 126.96.36.199 worked fine as did also the 188.8.131.52 Beta which I'm currently running, though only for the past 24hrs.
I avoid any tendencies to update by blocking internet access via my firewall, so these are blocked:
The tendency for software to update on install and then ignore the update flag is very rude and displays a disregard for the needs of the user.
PS why do I need a stronger password than my bank needs to post to this forum?
