Specs: Win10, Intel core i7 2600/ 4GB
When I try to set a hyperlink in Excel 2010 and 2013 it advises me that there is a system error possibly from an anti-malware program. Is there a possibility to see a list of all installed items, so that I can uninstall them one by one ? I have apparently too much protection.

✔ Best Answer
Go to "Control Panel > Programs and Features". There you will see all installed items.

Right click the Taskbar and choose Task Manager. There is useful information there about what is running in the background and at Start-up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thank you all for your answers.

Before asking Computing.net I had first put my question on the internet. There I found that many of the MS-Office suites suites and in many of their details this hyperlink blockage had appeared spontaneous in the follow up of time. SO i think that there is something wrong in the MS software I tried to recollect when this snag started for me and if there was a relation with the time I or MS updated my PC, but my memory was not long enough. I had also looked for malware with my AM software, nothing found.

As the internet also suggested that my antivirus might be the cause, I consulted Bitdefender and the provided me with a pretty long list of protection items to de-activate to see if that improved the situation. None of these items made a difference. Finally I decided to switch over to Libreoffice which had no problem in making hyperlinks
