Exploit Protection disabled

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I noticed that the Exploit Protection in MB 3.1.2 turned off shortly after awakening my laptop from hibernation.  I'm also running Emsisoft Antimalware (EAM), which I've run in conjunction with MB for a few years now, but I have had no problems with MB until now.  After trying the various fixes mentioned in other posts, including entering into EAM the long list of exclusions suggested for SEP users (worth a try, no?) and numerous reboots and cold boots, I still cannot get Exploit Protection re-enabled.  I think I saw an EAM version update installed just prior to MB conking out (it's pretty quick -- I saw the tray icon disappear and reappear, indicating a probable restart).

I've run MB-Check and FRST64 and attached those files, and I await further instructions/questions.

Hello @occupied

Thank you for the logs. It seems some of your files were not correctly replaced during the upgrade process and hence your Anti Exploit will not turn on.

Here is how to fix the issue.

1. Download the latest MB 3 installer from : https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mb3
2. Run the installer on top of your existing product. (Note you don't have to uninstall anything, just run the installer again)
3. After the install your issue should be fixed and you should see Anti Exploit turned on.

Please let me know if that worked.

Rats -- that's the first thing I was going to try this morning, but dealing with other crises got in the way, and I forgot.  I have just downloaded and reinstalled.  And yes, it's working now.  (shaking my head)

Thanks for your reminder of the old tried-and-true.  :rolleyes:
