Microsoft Office and Office 365 vs Malwarebytes


Staff member
I have noted a conflict between Malwarebytes and MS Office 365. Though both Microsoft and Malwarebytes continue to apply fixes, these fixes may be overwritten, depending upon how often one updates the software.

Users may notice Powerpoint crashing while starting up, even with Safe Mode.

The conflict occurs as part of DNS web protection on office365.com, mistakenly interfering with cloud syncing.

If PowerPoint fails to start, even with Protected Mode, disable Malwarebytes protection for Powerpoint, or other Office apps only.
