When trying to load an Excel file that has been on my Windows 10 PC for years, I receive the message "Exploit automatically blocked."  As soon as the message pops up, the file closes.  When I scan the file with Malwarebytes, the program does not detect any threats.  Nor does my virus scan (McAfee).  Assuming the warning is not a false positive, is there a way to clean the file so that I can recover it?  Thanks.

Are you using the current 3.2 version of Malwarebytes? 

Let us get a clean install of the current version.

We have another tool called MB-Clean which will automate the whole process for you.

 Tool can be found at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb_clean

1. After downloading the tool run the tool.

2. The tool will automatically clean up the older possibly damaged installation and will ask you for a restart.

3. Restart your system and then the MB-Clean tool will prompt you to re-install the latest product .

4. Click on "Yes" to reinstall MB 3.×.

5. Now you will have the latest product installed.

Please let me know if you are still seeing issues after the latest product install.
