It's an intermittent problem so it's hard to say if it is still an issue. I haven't made any changes to anything so I would assume it is still an issue.

To restate (and rephrase) my original question - is there a setting within MB that affects how it interacts with Excel? Does it do any type of checking in Excel when a file is opened or activated?

The only possible interaction I'm aware of might be from a potential perceived exploit for some functions that Excel might run or how it's launched. But those would show in our logs and fully block the operation.

We can do some generic general maintenance and clean up of the system if you like. Let m know if interested
