    office security updates?

    My OS is WIN7 and I do not use MS office.

    I have not been installing the security updates that relate to office.

    Am I exposing my self to exploits by not installing them or protecting myself from bad patches by not installing them.

    thanks

    I wouldn't expect you to be exposed, unlike IE updates which are required even if you don't use IE - Windows uses the IE engine for some things.

    cheers, Paul

    IMHO, if MS Office is installed on the computer, I would update it. Better safe than sorry.
