Exploit Protection won't enable

Recommended Posts


Please try excluding Malwarebytes' files from your antivirus' real-time protection to see if that resolves the issue.  The list of items to exclude may be found in this support article.  Restart your system once the exclusions have been created to see if Exploit Protection starts and remains enabled as it should.

If it does not and the issue persists then please perform a clean installation of Malwarebytes to see if that fixes the problem:

  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

Please let us know how it goes and if the issue is corrected or not.
