Hello @skitterismycat

Can you please try this :

1. Download the latest installer from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3

2. Run the installer on top of existing product. You don't need to uninstall anything.

3. After install let us know if the Anti Exploit corrects correctly.

Thank you.

Same problem....this also fixed it for me.  Thanks...Al

I've tried the clean tool, reinstalling, etc.

Somehow you ended up with"installer_version" : "3.1.2", installed.

Can you please try this :

1. Download the latest installer from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3

2. Run the installer on top of existing product. You don't need to uninstall anything.

Gotcha -- thanks for the input and directive. Downloaded latest installer from supplied link.  Yet I still am left with the Exploit Protection slider in 'stubborn' mode (it won't enable.)

Logs attached, and I appreciate your time.

 

Kindly :)

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe    REG_SZ        ~ RUNASADMIN

Go to the folder C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\
Find the file MBAMService.exe  and right click on it and choose Properties
In the window that pops up click on Compatibility Tab
Remove ALL checkmarks. Malwarebytes has issues when you change these settings,

Then please restart the computer.

Then use MB clean again and this time be sure if it does not offer the new install after the reboot you use the current version from the link you just downloaded.

Ok -- done.  Exactly as stated.  Yet.... (sigh) ... still no Exploit Protection.

 

I'm open and willing to keep executing suggestions, as your time permits.

 

Logs attached.

Have you enabled any non-default exploit settings in Windows Defender?

None.

 

The only setting which looks a bit 'off the beaten path', yet seems to have some logic to it, is seen in a screen snippet attached.  I'll take your commentary on it, of course.

All is set to default under "System Settings". 

 

I would like you to add these files to your Anti-Virus exclusions list as mentioned in this FAQ HERE (my list below includes the exe files as well)

Done.

Sorry my friend; still no dice.

(I even did a 'token' reboot after adding the exclusions, just in case that would've made a difference.)

Just turned off WinPatrol & WinPrivacy; Nada.

'twas working (the Exploit Protection) within the last day or two!

I thank you profusely (virtual handshake, if I may) for your volunteering efforts. When folks go out of their way and spend this much time with me, whether the problem is solved or not, I am just a grateful for a peer to be willing to be of service.

I am impressed, and thankful.  I'll see what I can do, and follow up if I come up with a solution.

@Tonality

Just to make sure that nothing is getting in the way of a healthy installation, can you do the following

  • Remove Malwarebytes
  • Boot to safe mode with networking (make sure to select this when booting to safe mode)
  • Attempt to install Malwarebytes 3 again (in safe mode with networking)

Report back and let me know how everything installs.

Will do -- with note below before doing so:

FYI: On my own accord, after reading a post wherein a member installed the beta iteration (v3.4) over the latest production version, reported no signs of any protection services turning off or not enabling (eg, the real time protection services.)

Having done so (late last night, with usage thereafter and this morning), my current installation of v3.4 beta has/is running like a champ: no issues. 

I do understand the disclaimers/implications of running (any) software which is issued in a beta compiled state. Having said this, shall I continue with your suggestion? (I'm fully willing/glad to do so.)   Or shall I leave "well enough alone" running beta given things are back to 'normal'?

I'll await your input suggestion before proceeding.

Kindly.... Tonality :)

Staying on the beta should be fine... they do have a bug in it where it causes a BSOD on some systems, and they are working on that... if you are not getting any BSOD's then your not affected.  I am running the beta myself on several computers and have no issues.
