Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit prevents exploits from compromising vulnerable code with three layers of security around popular browsers and applications.
Popular software programs contain millions of line of code. Bad guys exploit flaws (vulnerabilities) in the code to deliver malware. Except when they can't. Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit wraps three layers of security around popular browsers and applications, preventing exploits from compromising vulnerable code. Not an antivirus, but compatible with most antivirus, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is a small, specialized shield designed to protect you against one of the most dangerous forms of malware attacks. And it's free.
Shields browsers and browsers add-ons
(including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera)
Protects browser components, including Java, Adobe Reader, Flash, and Shockwave
Shields PDF readers
(including Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Reader)
Shields Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint
Shields media players
(including Microsoft Windows Media Player, VideoLAN VLC Player, QuickTime Player, Winamp Player)
Ability to add/manage custom shields
What's new in this version:
Added Layer1 self-protection mechanisms for MBAE DLL
Since adding anti-exploit free I have had no zero day exploit events. Not even one.
Bogus flash player update pages appear to block anti-exploit free. Anti-exploit says it's running, but really is not (when closing and restarting the browser, the icon and message do not appear in systray). Clear the browser cache, restart the computer, and everything is hunky-dory again.
A functional little program, with the exception that bogus flash player pages have found a way around it.
Stopped browser from proper function... & slowed the computer. So after uninstalling it, things returned to normal. ---Evidence that Malw.bytes anti-exploit caused it.
Not advisable as of March, 2016 in Windows 10 PC.

Disregard my 1-star review. -- I found out that it was the ASUS "Webstorage" software that was jamming up my PC, which I uninstalled, and things are better. Look out for that if you have ASUS. ---- Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit may be better than I thought. Please consider other reviews.
People are over the Iobit and malwarebytes thing... =_= I think it's you who is still stuck in the past. Please stop posting disruptive anti Iobit reviews in the Iobit malware fighter page since you never use it. Posting links and reviews from websites is not a real review, you have to actually use the product from Iobit if you are going to tell them to stop using it and try something else.
It's a good time to mature ^_^ I have used many Anti malware products and I will never write unfair negative 1 star (fake) reviews just because I'm a big fan of a curtain software product. It's not helpful for those that have to read disruptive (fake) reviews to see if they should try a product out.
None. It is dangerous to your computer, particularly on Windows 8
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.
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.
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.
