Recently, Windows Defender notified me that it identified that WellsrPro may be malicious, and since then it doesn't work.  When I start Excel, I get several popups that say, "Cannot run the macro wellsrRibbon.  This macro may not be avaiabole in this workbook, or all macros may be disabled.:  How do I fix this?

An email is going out about this this morning! There's a line in the code that uninstalls an old version of wellsrPRO if it's available and then installs the correct version. Apparently Microsoft doesn't like automatically installing an add-in with a macro like this so they started flagging it. I just sent you an early email with a new version of the code that removes this line so Windows Defender is happy. Sorry about that!
