Since yesterday I have been unable to open 2007 Excel and Word files (I did not have the problem previously despite having 16.0 R37)
Windows 10 Pro
McAfee Total Protection
Release Name: 16.0 R37
Same Problem with MS Office 2010. Need to kill EXCEL.EXE from Task Manager and turn off Real-Time Scanning before opening Excel, or stuck "running virus scan"
Just ran an update and running McAfee VirusScan Build 25.0.134, Engine Version: 4557.0, Last Update: 9/12/2021.
It's been almost a month. Is McAfee going to fix this or going to tell users MS Office 2010 is not supported? You will be surprised how many people are still using legacy MS Office b/c they have perpetual licenses.
The VirusScan on my computer is Build: 25.0.134, Last Update 9/17/2021. Engine version: 4562.0.
BTW: Don't disable copy-and-paste in your "About" dialog so I can copy-and-paste the versions of the components to your support please!!!!!
Re about I have been suggesting this for many years when I was one of the volunteer mods here. Why they cannot do it is past me one would think it is simple.
I will pass the suggestion onto a contact for inclusion (hopefully) in a new update.
Have just run a quick scan and the following result has come up - the reason I'm not able to run 2007 word or excel without turning off real time scaning?
