McAfee causing a "problem" opening Word documents - not solved
In an earlier thread "McAfee causing a "problem" opening Word documents", a solution was posted saying that the problem had been fixed in a software update. The poster recommended that a new thread be started if this was not the case. Although my McAfee product is fully up to date I am still getting the issue.
The original poster described the issue as follows which is the same for me:
For the past few months, whenever I open a Word document, I get the pop-up "The command cannot be performed because a dialog box is open." If I select "ok", the document opens. I read on the internet that anti-virus real time scanning can cause this and sure enough, when I turn off McAfee real time scanning, Word documents open without the pop-up. Does anyone have any ideas?
My environment is Windows 10, Microsoft Word 2007, McAfee Internet security 16.0 R18.
I would be grateful if Sanjay (who posted the solution) or someone else could help me with this.

As you said RTS seems to be the issue try and this cannot be a full solution try excluding the word file as exclusion works for RTS but not for scheduled scans , Will be a pain but I am interested if that works.
Alternatively exclude the word exe file though that probably is a real long shot.
