I've been avoiding installing MS Office, because I have had a lot of problems with macro viruses, in the past. Two weeks ago, however, I gave in. I installed Word and Excel. Now, when I look inside my User Preferences, I see this s(tuff). Screenshot #1 shows that "Roxio Toast Prefs" are of type "Microsoft Excel Preferences". The same screenshot shows that DivX and OfficeSync Prefs are also of type "Microsoft Excel Preferences". More instances will show in a second screenshot, in a second post. Does anybody recognize this behavior? I'm not sure if I have composed this post correctly. Let me give it a try... -and thank you! My system profile, in brief: G4 Quicksilver 933 MHz, running OS 10.5.8.
