Malwarebytes problem using Google Chrome

Every time i open Google Chrome Malwarebytes jumps in and stops various websites some are different but this one comes up fairy often.

I open the same sites using Firefox and get no problems.

Post an image of Malwarebytes' recent reports. If Firefox okay then it has to do with re-directing with one of Chrome's add-ons I would suspect.

Disabled all the Chrome add ons and just the same.

I did Google it and it seems there has been lots of problems between Malwarebytes and Chrome for a few years.

That was one of Malwarebytes images that I posted. There are loads of them.

I can stop them by turning off exploit protection on Malwarebytes but i do not want to do that.

I'm using Vivaldi (chrome based) and have a list of blocked websites. 15 in all. Usually clicking on a search result in Google. Otherwise have no issue. I agree not to turn exploit protection off. I'd just use Firefox for now until Chrome or Malwarebytes get an update.

Just turned the computer on and no problems found. Not got a clue as to what the fix was unless running C Cleaner maybe.

Saying that it will probably come back.
