There are several, recent reports at both Malwarebytes forum and KL forum about some sort of new problem with MBAE, KIS and Chrome (and even other browsers).
Affected users report different versions of KIS (2016 MR0, 2016 MR1, 2017 MR0), different versions of Windows (7 and 10) and different browsers (Chrome, Fx, IE).
There does not seem to be anything in common among the reports except MBAE.
Malwarebytes staff members seem to be aware, but there has been no official word about a cause or a fix.
Naturally, forum mods at KL forum recommend disabling/uninstalling MBAE (this does seem to resolve the issue).
I am on KIS2016 (not 2017) under both Win10 (1511) and Win7 (both 64-bit) and have NO issues with my browsers (Fx and IE 11), despite running both MBAM Premium and MBAE Premium.
And, for at least one user reporting the issue at Malwarebytes forum, the problem appeared to have spontaneously resolved on its own.
So it's clearly not a universal issue affecting all users.
I have no idea what's going on*.
With the long holiday weekend in the US, it may be several more days before anyone from the MBAE team at Malwarebytes can formally address the problem.
*Malwarebytes recently announced public beta testing of their new product (curiously named Malwarebytes Malwarebytes 3.0 -- they dropped the "Anti-Malware" moniker). It contains both the MBAE *and* MBARW-beta modules. It is being marketed as an "AV replacement" (whatever that means). Perhaps the 3rd-party AV vendors have begun to treat the new product as an incompatible competitor, rather than as a complementary anti-malware product?? (There have been other, new issues with both Symantec and MS security products, too.)
