McAfee virus detection deletes valid file

Is this the Enterprise version of McAfee? I'm not sure if the same  
applies to the consumer versions:

In the On-Access Scan Properties you can set an exception in the  
ScriptScan tab.
Failing that, you can tell it to exclude scanning a specific folder  
(where the actions and the script reside).

If it's the Enterprise version then ePO can push the exception/s to  
all users, so you don't have to change each one individually.

If the above doesn't help it may be that the security settings in an  
Office app are triggering McAfee.
