    Security essentials flagging my excel doc as being a virus


    After a recent 365 update 3/17, I have an Excel doc with VBA and Macros that Security Essentials is flagging as a virus. It deleted and/or disabled all of the macros and vba code and will not allow me to upload the backup file from a thumb drive. The excel doc has been working fine for months...until this update. We made the file an exclusion but it still flags it as a virus. Any ideas???

    :)
