Are you running this version on Windows on your Mac?
If the update request comes from MS, then go ahead and update Office.
If you used MS Office for Mac, you would not have this virus worry.
Had Microsoft Office 2009 installed in Imac version 10.6.3.Use mostly Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. I am prompted to update Microsoft Office. My question is, should I update? I fear by updating, I will be getting viruses.The Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel is used basically for keeping track of household expences. Thanks for any advise.
