MBAE Free 1.09 and a no-show GUI

Recommended Posts

Many months ago, I installed MBAE Free on a Windows 7 laptop belonging to a friend who lives in a care home. EMET 5.2 is also installed but browsers are strictly omitted from EMET's protection list and Java is absent from the system. Yesterday I noticed that the MBAE icon was absent from the system tray at the bottom left of the display. Task Manager showed that the MBAE service and mbae.exe were both running but i was unable to verify if MBAE protection was active. I was not able to make the MBAE GUI appear.

Has MBAE recently been modified to behave this way when EMET is installed?

It does not recover after a reboot. I hope to visit the old codger whose PC it is next week. Is your diagnostics data logging software the same as it was a year ago? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MBAE but without success.

I removed MBAE and enabled EMET 5.2 for web browsers pending that next visit. The only web browser in use is Google Chrome which self-updates.

I am puzzled because I did a system restore to the time when I last attended the system and MBAE was working. After the system restore, MBAE still did not behave as it should. MalwareBytes AntiRansomware and MBAM 2 Free both work correctly.
