Curious Update Request.
« on: August 17, 2014, 08:25:30 AM »
Hola. I return with more needs  :cheesy:

Nothing too deep. I keep getting hassle from a box opening that asks me to update Microsoft Office (Which i never use) and it is doing it even when i am working with my studio hardware and software. It will not go away and because it is not downloading via the standard method that windows uses, i feel it to be suspect and refuse to click "OK" I run Microsoft essentials then ADWCleaner and after a few minuets, it popped up again (See Photo)
I have had an Office Update via the standard method for updates because i have looked in the log, thus i feel this is a little curious.

Any ideas if this is Legit or should i try and seek it out and destroy it ?

Thank's.

Mike.

Hello. Thank you for the reply and help.

Ok, seems legit. After a spate of issues, i did not want to install, download or mess with anything unless i am sure it is safe or else Shane will end up spending another 4 days fixing me up .... AGAIN    :cheesy:

Thank you for the help.


Have a great day.

You're welcome and it's best to check with all of the malware that's floating about these days.

You have a great day too.

Tom.

Normally, anything MS related that needs updated will come through windows updates. So it was good of you to be cautious when something out side of windows updates asked you :wink:

Thank you Boggin for letting him know it was safe :-)
