When I click "Show in Folder" for a chrome download, malwarebytes force closes chrome despite being whitelisted for exploit protection

Recommended Posts

So I download a file.

I press CTRL + J in Chrome to get to the downloads view.

Then, under that download, I press "Show in folder"

But MBAM, with the "Exploit Protection" option being enabled under the "Protection" tab in Settings, force closes chrome with a notification that an exploit was prevented.

This does not happen in Windows 7, but only on my Windows 10 computer.

I disabled exploit protection for "Google Chrome (and plug-ins)", but the issue persists.

I am using Windows 10 1703 (Creators update) fully updated, with "sfc /scannow" in admin CMD returning no integrity violations.

If I disable exploit protection completely, there is a horrible red warning sign on the icon which I do not like...

any ideas? note I have QTabBar for Windows Explorer installed. This issue persisted when I was on 1607 with MBAM 2 and MB Anti-Exploit (Anniversary Update)
