Live Safe is stopping Excel opening files with error message OLE

If Real-time scan is turned on I can't open many Excel files. Excel freezes and eventually comes back with an error of "Microsoft Office Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action." This is happening on a number of different PCs with Windows 10 and a number of versions of Excel i.e Excel 2003, 2010, 2013. This just started happing the last couple of days. If I turn real time scanning off, Excel works fine. I tried to add Excel and Word to the Excluded files without success. Anyone have solutions?
