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, follow the instruction below.


Remove and clean install Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit

  1. Uninstall Anti-Exploit.

  2. Download and run the MBAE-Clean tool from here.

  3. Reboot the computer.

  4. Download the latest version from here.

  5. Manually install the application.
