Besides the custom shields of the premium version do you think the free version is effective enough ?

Hi:

Sorry, but that is a question only you can answer.
All I can do is provide the resources for you to research it and decide what's best for your system and computer usage.

Again, you can purchase the Premium version with a 30-day money-back guarantee, if you decide to go back to the Free version.

Thank you,

I've never used MBAE as the free version doesn't offer any protection for me.
I do use MS EMET, it's free and very customizable.
I've never had any conflicts or other problems with it.
Here is a tutorial by Brink:
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)

I found it worked great for a while. Then, about 3 months ago, it started blocking IE (which I use sometimes). After the flash player debacle a couple months back, I noticed my flash player was extremely slow in coming up & froze the browser 1/2 the time. Finally, I did some investigating & while MBAE was engaged, I noticed in sysinternals process explorer it would start, launch, then shut down & launch again. It did this for 5 mins straight. Once MBAE was turned off, it launched with no problems.

Other people have reported similar problems of this nature, but not everyone, so it seems to be erratic on which system has probs. Recently I advised someone having probs to turn MBAE off & it solved the problem. I have no idea if it's Flash or MBAE that's the root of the problem, but they apparently don't like each other anymore. At least on my sys.

@DavidE:

MBAE and EMET differ, as explained in this FAQ
Also, if you use a browser with/without plug-ins, or Java or Adobe Reader, MBAE Free protects those, as explained in this recent post

@Borg386:

Each computer is unique, so it's hard to generalize about MBAE "not working" with IE or Flash or any other program or application.
The MBAE Product Manager actively assist users with issues in a forum reserved for this purpose.
Nearly every problem or conflict can be resolved.
If you would like free, expert help with MBAE on your system, you might wish to start with the advice in this pinned topic: [README FIRST] >>> Posts here need to include MBAE logs <<<
Then @pbust will be more than happy to assist you in a new topic in the support section HERE or at the Help Desk

Thank you,

I don't have Java or Adobe Reader.
I use Pale Moon as my main browser, and Foxit or Nitro Reader for PDF's.
Does MBAE free protect those ?

thanks!

The most recent version of MBAE free does protect Pale Moon. In fact, every time you open Pale Moon you get a popup telling you that MBAE now protects Pale Moon. I hope that goes away.

The earlier version did not protect Pale Moon.

Thanks, i didn't know they added Pale Moon.
I might try it on a test system to see how it works for me now that it would add some protection for me.
The popup would be annoying.

This new version of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit introduces protection for a lot of new browsers, which is something many of you have been asking for a long time. In addition to the main browsers, MBAE Free now also protects Maxthon, Seamonkey, Palemoon, IceDragon, Cyberfox, Tor Browser Bundle, Waterfox and some others.

The popups are explained HERE, as well as the fact that they can be suppressed in the program settings.
