Malwarebytes recently acquired ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, a vulnerability, exploitation and security research company. With this acquisition, ZeroVulnerabilityLab’s ExploitShield is now part of the Malwarebytes family and is now called Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.

Anti-Exploit-Tool Malwarebytes

April 2020 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


The Anti-Exploit Tool Malwarebytes is not an antivirus software as we generally understand it. It runs in the background, uses minimal resources, monitors applications and prevents vulnerabilities from being exploited.

There is not much to configure after installation. Just leave the default settings. However, you can specify exclusions, if necessary. If there are incidents, you can see them on the Logs tab page. The tool can even protect and block exploits of vulnerabilities that have not yet been detected by software vendors.

This version protects the following software and applications :

Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Java, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player, Winamp Player, QuickTime Player, Windows Script Host and Windows Help.

It is currently in beta and can be downloaded from its home page

UPDATE: December 08, 2016 The software is no longer available as a standalone tool. Look at McAfee Raptor.
