    Internet Explorer & Google Chrome not starting: faulting module path

    Hi, I have a friends computer who's IE & Chrome won't start. When starting either browser they don't display in Task Manager. The Application logs in Event viewer list the following faulting module:

    Faulting application name: chrome.exe, version: 54.0.2840.99, time stamp: 0x582209d1

    Unfortunately, I am assisting them remotely so it is difficult to try more involved methods.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    it sounds dumb, but it's a legit question... have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling at least chrome? My brother has a similar issue once and reinstalling seemed to fix it.

    Yep. This was the first thing I did including deleting all chrome related stuff from the appdata and programdata folders. I also tried disabling and enabling IE from the windows features menu.
    Forgot to mention, both SFC and DISM found no errors.

    I have thought about uninstalling KIS 2016? I did disable the firewall to see if it was blocking either program but it wasn't.

    If you are running Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, or the release build of the new Malwarebytes 3.0 (3.0.4) there is a clash with Kaspersky which causes this. It's fixed in Malwarebytes 3.0.5.

    I installed MBAE when I re-imaged their PC. It was working fine with KIS but I will remove it tomorrow and see if it resolves the issue. Thanks.

    Success! Removing MBAE resolved the issue. Does this indicate that KIS incorporates a similar from of protection?
    Many thanks.
