  1. On Wednesday, November 10, 2021, I found this in McAfee's Quarantine section: Item: mbae.dll | Threat: GenericRXQL-XZ!F2A56B293D17 | Detected: 11/6/2021 11:12 AM Full Path: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\LKG Threats Detected GenericRXQL-XZ!F2A56B293D17 Item: mbae.dll | Threat: GenericRXQL- mbae.dll is Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Anti-Exploit dynamic link library. I suspect that something is tricking McAfee into quarantining then deleting the file so exploits can run amuck on my PC. https://www.registry-programs.com/process/list/mbae.dll.html says: The legit mbae.dll process is located in the e: \ \program files\ \malwarebytes anti-exploit \ folder. If it is located elsewhere, it could be malware as a virus can have any name. https://www.shouldiblockit.com/mbae.dll-856ef24d278cd512a4b10b593a1f3a1d.aspx [from 2016] says: Typical file path: C:\Program Files\malwarebytes anti-exploit\mbae.dll Here in 2021, however, there is no malwarebytes anti-exploit subfolder. A search on mbae in my C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware folder yielded the following: mbae64.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware mbae.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware mbae-api-na.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware AeShim.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware mbae64.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\LKG mbae-api-na.dll C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\LKG mbae64.sys C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\LKG mbae64.sys C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware Should I leave the mbae.dll file that McAfee put in quarantine, or restore it to C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\LKG ?
  2. Hi MalwareBytes Support, I tried to anticipate what you will ask for to help solve this problem. I included any logs that I know how to retrieve. I do not know how to retrieve any other logs nor do I recognize the acronym FRST nor can i find more information on it here https://www.malwarebytes.com/support/guides/mbam/ I really did try to look. If you need more information please tell me where it is as I am fairly computer literate but dont understand your acronym references. Thanks.

  3. I'm aware of various problems, such as iexplore,exe crashing, but this one seems to leave a working but very slow and busy laptop. At the moment I have turned web protection OFF and this has returned to laptop to useable, so I have a fix of sorts. Process Explorer shows that the thread running mbae.dll is using 9-10% of the processor, in each running instance of iexplore.exe whether this be in the foreground or background. It appears to prevent iexplore.exe from closing down completely as well, thus the degradation is cumulative. I'll happily provide more information. I'm running Windows 10 Home, fully patched but not creators yet, i3 processor, 8Gbyte memory, Norton internet security
  4. I'm on 3.0 and tried to manually update to the latest version, but I got the error message in the first screenshot while trying to install it. I then uninstalled Malwarebytes, and got the same message while trying to install it again. I read somewhere that I should delete the mbae64.sys file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers, then to try installing it again, but I can't (see 2nd screenshot). Apparently the file is being used by something, but I can't identify it in the Task Manager. I'm running as administrator and even restarted.. nothing helps. I looked inside the Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware folder and there is this mbae.dll file inside (3rd screenshot). I had Anti-Exploit installed before 3.0, but after 3.0 I don't know why this file is still exists. My system has been acting wonky ever since this went down.. some programs will open, but won't stay running. Please help.
  5. Hi Since around August 18th we've been seeing crash reports with mbae.dll on stack. This looks similar to what's been reported here: All reports are from Windows 8.1 or 10. Here's an example stack we see: >61b6d3df 1c3df mbae.dll >61b79011 28011 mbae.dll 61b78f7c 27f7c mbae.dll 61b81370 30370 mbae.dll >61b78f98 27f98 mbae.dll >77890ace 8face ntdll.dll 61b78f7c 27f7c mbae.dll >7783fc08 3ec08 ntdll.dll 61b78f7c 27f7c mbae.dll >778215d2 205d2 ntdll.dll 61b78f7c 27f7c mbae.dll >778214a6 204a6 ntdll.dll >7520dbf3 2cbf3 KERNEL32.DLL >01062f13 41f13 40 opera.exe exit_or_terminate_process(unsigned int) >01062ea9 41ea9 ef opera.exe common_exit(int,_crt_exit_cleanup_mode,_crt_exit_return_mode) 0105c840 3b840 0 opera.exe __except_handler4 >0106304e 4204e 11 opera.exe _exit >01059663 38663 107 opera.exe __scrt_common_main_seh(void) 010596c4 386c4 0 opera.exe _wWinMainCRTStartup 010596c4 386c4 0 opera.exe _wWinMainCRTStartup 0105c840 3b840 0 opera.exe __except_handler4 >751f8cc4 17cc4 KERNEL32.DLL Memcrash logs needed >77879674 78674 ntdll.dll Memcrash logs needed >77879643 78643 ntdll.dll Memcrash logs needed 010596c4 386c4 0 opera.exe _wWinMainCRTStartup Since Opera is based on Chromium, the root cause may be similar to but that's just guessing on my part.
