I am running Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 on Windows 10

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A simple Google search on "HxTsr.exe" gives lots of links for resolution of issues with this executable file, initial reading of the headline entries makes it look like a Malware executable but further investigation shows that it is being reported by Anti-MalWare when it shouldn't be, they refer to it as a "False-Positive".

It is contrary to EE rules to post blind links but here is a link on MS Community website:
