    What are alternatives to Malwarebytes?


    My MBAM Premium 3.0.6 had the "Exploit Protection" not initializing problem again this morning. My system was a cold boot with the problem. Restarting Win 10 fixed the problem, but it shouldn't be happening.

    I'm open to alternatives. MBAM does not leave me with a good feeling anymore.

    I used HitmanPro once to fix a client's PC that was infected and MBAM did not fully clean. One to consider.

    I'm pretty sure you don't need my advice from reading your posts and the experience you obviously have so, I'll just throw this out there FYI : Latest Version of Malwarebytes

    The version I have is the latest. There was an update a couple of weeks ago that "fixed" the problem. Obviously it hasn't completely fixed the problem.

    Have you sought actual assistance at the MB forums?

    I've looked at their forums. Didn't see anything that would "permanently" fix the problem. A friend who has a PC security business says he gets the same thing occasionally. A bug that needs fixing.

    Malwarebytes made an error with version 3 by turning into a full AV (too greedy?), but there is no turning back, so they are desperately trying to fix all the bugs, but keep failing. It is pity, it was a good product.

    "Looking" at the forums and their staff looking at your logs are 2 different things. I am aware you are not just an average "end user" but another set of eyes can help even the best of us.
    My clients and I are not having any issues with MB 3.

    The friend who is in computer security and is active with MBAM (and who promotes and sells MBAM) is having the same intermittent problem. If he can't get it resolved, no one can. I've had the same, intermittent, problem on both my production Win 10 installation and my Insider version. That is two different Win 10 installs.
