Desktop computer Dell XPS 8700, running Windows 10 Professional 64 bit, version 1803.  Avast Premier AV, Malwarebytes Premium fully updated.  I am working on a newly created MS Word file (actually an invoice to a client).  Every time I save the file, MB reports that it blocked an exploit.  The most recent report is shown below.  Any idea what is going on here, or what I need to do about it?

The Am I infected? What do I do? forum has been closed...see here and we do not provide malware removal in this forum.

If you need individual assistance with a possible malware infection, you should follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide. When you have done that, start a new topic and post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team. If HelpBot replies to your topic, please follow Step One and CLICK the link so it will report your topic to the team members.

If you choose to follow the above instructions, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one to avoid confusion.

Thanks

I have posted to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware and Malware Removal Logs forum, under the title "Curious behavior, not sure whether malware or not"  I'm not sure how to create a link.

 

The FRST.text file was MUCH too large to post (even 1/4 of it was too large) so I attached FRST.txt and Addition.text to the message instead.

 

EDIT - Oops, I think this should be the link: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/679995/curious-behavior-not-sure-whether-malware-or-not/

Now that your new topic is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member...nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the information or any log(s) you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your system is clean.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response because the Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers but your topic will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

I advise checking your new topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, please follow Step One and CLICK the link so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Good luck.
