I have a premium subscription; everything has been working fine for many months. Today MB started blocking MS Word because of a payload exploit. Word opens, and then is immediately closed by MB, even before I open a file. So, it's an application thing, it seems, not a file issue. MB pointed to a file Roaming/Grammarly/Updates/GrammarlyAddInSetup6.7.139.exe. This is the normal location for Grammary updates, it seems. There were files in there going back a year with different version numbers. (Could be old exploits too, I suppose; but I doubt it.) I am running the latest version of Grammarly, of course. I checked the Word file I was trying to load with VirusTotal - clean. I did a full scan of my system - clean. I checked the Roaming/Updates/etc folder for the file reported by MB - the 6.7.139.exe file does not exist. I deleted the whole Grammarly/Updates/* folder just to be sure, in case the file was hidden (although I have hidden files showing). The problem still remains - when I boot Word, it is immediately closed by MB, even before I open any specific Word file. I have attached a screenshot of the error. I'm not sure what to do next; working in MS Word is my daily business, so my business is down, and I am blocked. Help! Thank you
