I've been using this for a while, but the icon stopped appearing in the bottom right corner of my screen.

 

I uninstalled and freshly installed but with no success, it is still not appearing.

 

Also ... my malwarebytes icon also doesn't appear anymore unless I actually do a manual scan.

 

Both malwarebytes free and avast report no viruses or malware.

 

I tried the compatibility report/options for anti exploit and it says I am using windows xp service pack 2, but I am using windows 7 and there is no option in this report to select windows 7.

 

It seems that anti exploit is not running at all even when I click on the exe file nothing happens, and I also have my doubts that malwarebytes is running automatically too.

Are you sure the icon is not just hidden? Check your Notification Area Icons settings ...How to Manage and Hide Notification Icons on the Windows Taskbar in Windows 7/8/10

If Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is running it will show in Task Manager as mbae.exe *32.

no, I have looked there. Anti exploit is not there at all. 

 

I also see there is a brand new version of malwarebytes ? I've got the current update, but the original was installed 3 years ago.

Microsoft updates sometimes will cause issues with it.Did you update your system recently?

From what I understand, Malwarebytes 3.0 will automatically uninstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware Beta stand-alone products if present before it installs/upgrades so that probably explains why the MBAE icon no longer shows.

I have the most recent win10 update failing to install (as they often do - could be related to my modified hosts file :smash:

 

But, when restarting after this morning update on malwarebytes (premium) to new version the win10 update also tried to happen - again - with the restart and screwed things up. Malwarebytes could not start/reach the service.

 

The fix was to download the "trial" version of malwarebytes and install it - it upgraded and properly repaired the existing installation and Malwarebytes is working again..

Malwarebytes 3.0 combines their previous Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware programs along with malicious website protection into one product which is just called "Malwarebytes".

If that is what you installed, then you already have everything you need.

Yes.

A 14-day trial of Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium is available as an option when first installing so all users can test the real-time protection component and all protection features for a period of two weeks. When the trial period expires those features will be deactivated and locked. Enabling the Protection Module and other features again requires registration and purchase of a license key. Malwarebytes turns to free mode after the trial expires...it does not provide any real-time protection and therefore, it cannot be used to block or prevent malware infection. If you continue to use the free version, there is no requirement to buy a license...you can just use it as a stand-alone scanner to remove malware and rootkits.

If you are purchasing a license for Malwarebytes 3.0 you will have anti-exploit protection so I'm not sure why you need to do a fresh install.

 

Anyway, see Post #2 in this topic for a list of alternate prevention tools.
