Office Click To Run detected


Recommended Posts

The screen shot provided happened the other day.  I have had Office 2016 installed since Nov, 2015 so it was installed prior to Anti-Ransomware.  I had Anti-Ransomware running for several weeks with no issues then this was detected.  the program stated that it was quarantined and I thought nothing of it.  Then I started getting Office errors "Office is Busy - We're sorry, <program>.exe can't be used right now because Office is busy. We're either updating or helping you add or remove some programs. You can try using <program>.exe again after we're done. It shouldn't take long".  Just reinstalled Office and will see how it goes.  For now all is good.

Hello @cpatrick08 and :welcome:

It is disappointing to read your testing system is having MBARW Beta issues but each computer is unique. Problems that seem "the same" frequently are not.

The same is true for solutions. Solutions may often need to be individualized for your unique testing system.

It is less confusing for everyone if a "One Member Per Topic" policy is adhered to instead of posting to the topic of another member.

Development Team Members, Staffers and helpers will be able to more easily provide both you, and the OP/Topic Starter, with individualized assistance.

Please start a NEW, and SEPARATE topic by left-clicking this >>Start New Topic<< link now.

Thank you always for your patience and understanding.

Same problem here although after it was reported it didn't affected the Office 2016 365 installation.

The MalwareBytes had been running for weeks without any changes to the Office products so not sure why all of a sudden it considered it a threat. There was nothing listed under MalwareBytes quarantined tab and all Office products worked as normal.
