Go online to

You have caught a virus that only affects Microsoft word documents. It is harmless to macs, but as usual, very dangerous for PCs, so you will have trouble emailing it out. Go to the Intego website (or another site for virus repair software), download and install the program, and run it.

Once all virus are gone, those errors will go away.

If you have multiple computers in your network be sure to run it on the other machines too so it doesn't end up re-infecting you.

Once I go to the website what do I choose? There are many options and I am not sure which to pick.
