Malwarebytes | Anti-Rootkit BETA - Free Rootkit Scanner & Remover mind you it is beta but it ran ok for me a while ago.

Thanks , actually i have run that beta version in the past but not since i have had the new Mbam , i will do that . I have Kaspersky and do have a recently burned RD from them , Bit Defender RD came up empty but i'll try Kaspersky again.

Britton, yes , when that message popped up the first time i did reboot and then a did a full scan but again it came up empty.

The message does go away and is not a re occurring problem , just every couple of weeks i see it. Computer has been running very well with no issues but rootkits are supposed to trick you into believing you have no issues so i'm always paranoid regardless lol.

Thanks all

I do have check for rootkits enabled and my system is clean , i ran multiple rootkit scanners with UAC turned to not notify while scanning and i know about Defogger but thats a non issue.

Everything including an on demand scan from Emsisoft is also clean.
Best answers I found on Malwarebytes:This has been around since Mbar BETA 1.06.0.1003 (rootkit scanner, not malware scanner).
Probably just got carried over to the 2.0 version when they incorporated rootkit scanning directly into their Malware scanner (as opposed to having a separate utility)

MBAM Anti Exploit

Tried it when it was known as ExploitShield by ZeroVulnerabilityLabs - it's now been taken over by MBAM. It doesn't support all browsers and can conflict with some security software. I've seen browsers refusing to launch with protection enabled.

They are slowly ironing out the bugs so if you're running a common browser give it a try. Personally I tried the MBAM version for a while but tend to stick to EMET instead.

Suggest keeping an eye on the current known issues:

I just saw this. I had posted about the new version, no longer Beta

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.03.1.1220 (Out of Beta)

I too have used it since it was ExploitShield, with no issues I might add. I have numerous other active security programs running, and none of them conflict (including MBAM Premium, SAS Pro, Zemana Antilogger, Keyscrambler, Hitman Pro Alert, EMET). This is a very worthwhile program to try if you have not yet. A Guy

Hmm well my Windows Explorer keeps crashing and it might be this although it has done this in the past. It could possibly be my provider of course.

Windows Explorer crashing?

It seems unlikely that MBAM Anti Exploit Shield would cause Windows Explorer to crash but earlier versions might have caused Internet Explorer to crash or even fail to launch.

I've suffered explorer crashes myself in the past. Once it was down to a corrupt media file located on my hard drive and it was tricky to track down the file that was the culprit and other crashes have been down to third party software or context menu shell extensions. Just in case you're interested it might be possible to figure out the probable cause using methods like the ones in these threads:

Windows Explorer crashes when trying to open certain file properties see Post #3 and onwards.

File Explorer crashing (constantly), mostly in directories with images

Basically it's possible to obtain a crash dump for each windows explorer crash then look at the dump for clues.

Yep well it probably was just coincidental Callender I have fixed the problem now anyway - although I do not know what was causing the crashing.

Just wanted to add here,

Here is how to test if malwarebytes anti-exploit is working properly:

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...ing-correctly/

With it enabled it did block it. (Ironically, malwarebytes pro did not) Here is the scary thing, I tried the following antivirus products in vms:

-Avast
-Kaspersky
-panda
-antivir
-avg
-Norton Internet Security

None of them detected the exploit happening. That is possibly bad. The av's might not see it as a threat, I do not know how malwarebytes designed it. They said they designed it with normal exploit methods but didn't go into further detail. I reported it to the vendors, and it will be interesting to receive their responses. I will be coming back to this post and updating with a link to the vendor forum to get there responses.
