Malwarebytes closing my browser (Seamonkey) when I try to open folder after

Recommended Posts

I look at BSOD Windows 10 problems and constantly download zip files that contain many different files, including mini dumps. Starting earlier today, after I download the zip file, I then right click on it as usual and select Open containing folder. Malwarebytes is now closing my web browser with the following error:




I also attached the mbst-grab-results.zip file. The zip file doesn't get deleted, just the browser gets closed.  seamonkey.exe is unchanged, still the 8/13/2018 version running.

The only new software I have is called QTTabBar which I installed on 3/18. It extends File Explorer, adding Tabs and a bunch of other neat stuff. Funny, that's right around this time this started happening but I didn't pursue it until yesterday. I'll uninstall it and I'm pretty sure that will resolve this.


I see I posted the wrong image a 3rd time and still no way to edit, rats! Here is what I wanted to post and the QGroupOpener and QT stuff is what reminded me I had just recently installed it. Back in a few.

Thanks for confirming!

As a workaround for the time being, you can make an adjustment to Malwarebytes' settings.

  • Open Malwarebytes.
  • Click Settings.
  • Click Protection.
  • Click Advanced Settings.
  • Click Advanced Memory Protection.
  • Uncheck Malicious Return Address Detection for the Browsers column.

This should allow you to reinstall the program without experiencing the Exploit Protection blocks.
