Thank you for reporting this issue.  I've seen a few other reports so far of similar problems with the latest MS preview build.  Do keep in mind that Malwarebytes does not guarantee compatibility with any beta/test operating systems/updates, so until build 18323 is released officially to non-preview users, it is not guaranteed to work properly.

That said, if you haven't tried performing a full clean uninstall/reinstall of the software using the official Malwarebytes Support Tool then that might be worth a shot to see if it corrects the issue:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)
  3. Click the Clean button, and allow it to restart your system and then reinstall Malwarebytes, either by allowing the tool to do so when it offers to on restart, or by downloading and installing the latest version from here

Noticed  also a message telling it is unable to load the Anti Root kit driver.

Yes, based on the logs I've been seeing from users affected by this issue, it appears that the root of the problem is that, for whatever reason, Malwarebytes is failing to install its drivers for the affected protection components as each of them uses their own driver, just like Anti-Rootkit does.  So whatever has changed in the Insider Preview build of Windows 10 is apparently affecting Malwarebytes' ability to install and register its drivers.
