Guarding Against Macro Viruses
Macro viruses are malicious programs designed to attach themselves to
Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files. When an unsuspecting victim opens an
infected file, the virus can spread and do something nasty, such as deleting
your files or your entire hard drive.
To stop these pests from wrecking your files, get an antivirus program, avoid
downloading or accepting any files from unknown people, and turn on Office
2010’s built-in macro protection feature, which can disable macros or restrict
what macro viruses and worms can do even if they do infect your computer.
To turn on macro protection, follow these steps:
1. Load Word or PowerPoint.
2. Click the File tab.
A pull-down menu appears.
3. Click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
4. Click Trust Center.
The Trust Center options appear in the right pane.
