Bought Anti-Exploit but cannot find a way to activate it


Recommended Posts

Purchased anti-exploit today.  Received Malwarebytes instructions to download.  Totally unable to find the program on my PC.  Step 2 of the activation instructions is: "Open anti-exploit (double click on the orange shild icon on the traybar next to the clock".  Huh?


Is the traybar the set of icons at the bottom of the screen?  If so, there is no orange shield on the traybar.  There is also no Anti-Exploit icon on my desktop.  Here is what I have done so far:


Uninstalled Anti-Exploit from the control panel

Rebooted my pc

Assured that the C:\Program files dedicated to Anti-Exploit were removed

Rebooted my pc program again

Re-downloaded anti-exploit

Rebooted my pc

...and I still cannot find the Anti-Exploit program so I can start step 2 of the activation instructions.




I use Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Windows 10

My browser is Microsoft Edge.  

I also tried with Firefox...and same utter inability to find Anti-Exploit after I install it.

I have downloaded the file 4 times so far and installed it 4 times so far, each time going through the uninstall and redownload/reinstall steps in my earlier message. 

I had Anti-Exploit Free up to 2-3 days ago and a pop continuously comes up to say that I am no longer protected.

I do not know what else to do to make sure the Anti-Exploit Premium software I have purchased, downloaded and installed is indeed activated. There is no Anti-Exploit icon that I can open. 

I have also gone into C:\Program files and open/run the application file but even after that I have absolutely no clue if the program is working.

Thank you for your response.  Please help me.
