I have followed with interest the topic "MBAE won't run" by JS Hill as I have the same issue though obviously not the same as the previous thread has been fixed and closed. I have 32bit Windows XP Professional (I need it for programs that are unsupported on other OS). But the set-up differs in that I use "Avast" anti-virus and "Privatefirewall 7.0" I have run Chkdsk etc. etc. and everything appears clean of disk errors and malware but when starting: mbae-svc.exe -install I get the message: ......... CmdInstallService(600): Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Service failed to start. Trying to start the service via services.msc momentarily starts the service (it is seen in the task list) but then stops almost immediately. I have two Windows 7 64bit PCs and an old Vista 32bit PC with the same Avast & Privatefirewall 7.0 set-up and MBAE runs with no problems. The only other unusual feature (of all these PCs) is that the OS & Programs are on SSDs with most everything else running on spinners using NTFS junctions. The same set-up is used across all OS; XP, W7, WVista. Any ideas about the XP failure would be gratefully received. Thanks
