After Anti-Exploit automatically upgrades itself, it may show as disabled. This is caused by Windows not performing an uninstall correctly, so there will be two startup entries for Anti-Exploit.


Normally, a reboot of the computer is sufficient to fix the issue.  If it does not, please try the following:

  1. Uninstall Anti-Exploit
  2. Download and run the MBAE-Clean tool from here.
  3. Reboot the computer.
  4. Download and install the latest version manually from here.
