Sorry for breaking the rules. I am new to this forum and don't know the proper way to post a question or respond. As my screen name implies, I truly am computer challenged. I had Office 2010 installed on my laptop in April -- all has been fine, but now I am receiving a message that it is not activated. When I called the person who I bought it from and who installed it, he told me I have to turn off all antivirus programs to reactivate it. That's all I know. I have not tried to reactivate it yet. Thanks for telling me how to turn Malwarebytes off. If you don't mind, how do I turn it back on once I have reactivated Office?
