    I am a regular Mac user and have always used Office rather than pages. Recently both Word and Excel have stopped working. As soon as I open a page, it immediately crashes. This has never happened before. I really have no idea whether I have a virus or whether there is something wrong with my computer.

    Can anyway give me advice?

    Is this Office 2011 for OS X or Office 2010 for Windows? In either case, have you applied all the latest updates?

    I bought my computer in 2008, and have never updated office (i'm sorry!). It appears that I have 10.0.0, which leaves me wondering how my computer is still working.

    I am using OS X 10.05.8 but my version of office seems to be really old. There seems to be a lot of advice on the web for office 2008 and later. But nothing really for the earlier editions.
