Cannot auto update Excel Charts in Word Unless Viruscan disabled

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what to turn off in Viruscan 13 so that I can auto update a bunch of linked Excel files in Word? I can do this on other computers without McAfee installed and it seems to work on mine if I turn all of McAfee off, but is there any way to fix this - I assume its easy?

Thank you,
George

Make sure that Excel, Word and any other application associated with it has full access in the firewall.

Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center
Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Configure (left)
Click Internet & Network (top left)
Click Advanced (right)
Click Program Permissions (left)

You can modify or add programs there.

If necessary try disabling VirusScan:

Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center
Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Configure (left)
Click Computer & Files (top left)
You can disable VirusScan in the right-hand module and tell it for how long.
