I have read the Microsoft website and it would appear that this is to do with Office,I do not have any part of Office installed and it does not appear in Control Panel,Add & Remove.Many moons ago I had Works 2003 installed and this probably had Office on it but I took it off because I never used it just kept Works suite 7.I presume it is not doing any harm and I'll just keep refusing to allow it to run will that be OK.?

I have read the microsoft page but as I have said ti seems to be concerned with Office products of which I have none installed also typing commands is OK if you know what you are doing and how to undo,I'm afraid I am not too well verse in issuing commands etc.so I think I'll leave it alone and just deny every time it appears.Thanks for your trouble.
