"works great on Win7"

October 20, 2014  |  By markwauk

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.03.1.1220

Pros

easy install
doesn't interrupt other programs

Cons

free version lacks ability to add other programs
I don't like that I have the premium version of malwarebytes and have to buy this separate software for anti-exploit

Summary

I don't know about win 8.1 but win 7 64bit is great

"The free version is awful."

October 19, 2014  |  By swanjame

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.03.1.1220

Pros

None. It is dangerous to your computer, particularly on Windows 8

Cons

It interferes with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (I have the premium version, which I love). It interferes with Firefox. It interferes with Windows 7 to the point of causing Firefox crashes.. It interferes with Windows 8 to the point of causing Firefox crashes, system crashes, and occasional BSOD. Some of the other reviewers mentioned problems with uninstalling it so I won't cover those.

Summary

Just plain awful.

"uninstalled-residual files remaining"

August 05, 2014  |  By mebtz

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit BETA 0.9.2 beta

Pros

Didn't realize it was running most of the time.

Cons

Beta expired. Downloaded new version and still got same error that beta expired contact them. Was annoying popup every time I went to a website and I work online so I uninstalled through my Control Panel. Got message uninstall successful but there were remaining files that could be deleted without worry (manually). But when I go to the folder in my programs directory delete or send to recycle bin is not allowed because it's "open in another location" Task manager won't allow me to end the process because "access is denied" and I'm the administrator. Super annoying beeping pop ups downloading files or opening websites. Argh.

"August '14 - Easy Install"

August 04, 2014  |  By gregrubin

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.03.1.1220

Pros

Easy Install

Cons

Non-yet, but will update

Summary

Having read all the old reviews I decided to try the program being an avid user of Malwarebytes. The install was easy, actually fast and almost transparent. I'll update as time goes on. Four stars for now.

"Mediocre and blocks false positives"

December 30, 2013  |  By Not-My-Problem

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit BETA 0.09.4.1000 beta

Pros

The software shields your applications.
It's lightweight, and doesn't slow down your computer.
Is actually compatible with Norton 360. (Finally!)

Cons

The uninstaller is broken, forcing you to uninstall it manually by deleting the .program files using a file remover.
The program will block legitimate programs from running, such as this Java download manager that I was using on Google Chrome. (It blocked it, thinking that I was being attacked.)
The beta expires, and you will be bombarded with warning messages when you open your browser.

Summary

I'm disappointed, because I expected more from Malwarebytes. I know that it is a beta, but why was it so unstable. Also, the whitelist didn't always work, and the beta expired. Why would it expire? Do I need to buy the beta in order to continue using it?

"It might be BETA but works fine... no issues so far..."

November 15, 2013  |  By melen001

 |  Version: Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit BETA 0.09.4.1000 beta

Pros

I have read a few reviews and I'd say it's 50/50 or a draw. Some have problems and some don't and it's still to early to make a judgement. If we take into consideration that Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit BETA was formerly ExploitShield by Zero Vulnerability Labs and that it has performed quite well in the past should indicate that MBAE BETA should be up to par. Sure it's BETA software and we should expect BUGS but still it should perform at least like it did in it's previous version, ExploitShield. Like the easy of installation and no configuring is needed. Just install and let it run. Very little memory consumption and not intrusive at all. I have been using it for a couple of days with no issues at all and.so far, it seems to do it's job well. I will be updating my review in a few days so I will let you know. I have been using Microsoft's EMET but I have uninstalled it to just see how MBAE BETA performs.

Cons

At the moment I have not encountered one single issue. It can use a few more options and features which I consider has very few.

Summary

Good with no issues at the moment. Try it. You won't even notice that it's on your PC. Just don't forget that it's Malwarebytes and they are excellent at what they do.
