I am using MBAE Beta version

1.13.1.443

When this is turned on, clicking on the "Margins" button on Microsoft Word causes the program to hang for few seconds and crashed.

Then later, this message box showed up:

The workaround is turning off the option "Detect penetration testing attacks"

Hope this will be fixed.

Sincerely.

Yes, I took a risk turning that on.

That is why it is off by default. It is also a setting in premium but is also off by default.

What you encountered is currently expected to happen.

I just run anyway, right? Just re-ask to make sure that this version is not malicious.

VirusTotal said that it is safe. My antivirus also said so.

Oh! Right yesterday and today I noticed a weird behaviour. Yesterday, MBAE suddenly vanished out of nowhere. So I ran the installer again. MBAE appeared back. I double-clicked it, it ran with the settings, logs intacted. Then, I closed the window. I tried to run MBAE again. But it didn't run. Later, this appeared. The Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit service is taking too long to start. Please reboot your computer to restart protection.

Today, MBAE vanished again. I ran the installer again, and this appeared.

Along with this notification again:

Now I will do a reboot and tell you how it goes.
