I'm running Windows 10, patched from a long-standing Windows 7 installation.
I have a lifetime sub to MBAM and heard I could update to 3.0 by doing an install over. Seemed to work okay, but ever since, the Anti Exploit program won't let me open any MS Office files, either using Excel and Word or even Libreoffice. This is with a wide variety of files. If I turn off Exploit protection then it works as expected.
Being a curious monkey I went into Manage Protected Applications and I see that I can turn off protection on a per item basis, but I'm assuming that's not a good idea.
Oh, I also created a custom listing for Excel to try out - how do I delete it? There's an option but apart from toggling protection On or Off, the delete option remains greyed out.
This is the typical text of the Report, and I've attached my log file. Looking through the log file I'm seeing a lot of Warnings and Errors which seem to be related to json files - I don't have Java installed, if that makes a difference.
