Please Help! Office v.X "invades" Preferences


If you are running Office v.X, I need your help. The Preferences folder inside my System Folder (the one that Classic uses) is full of Preference files that have purple and white icons and Microsoft Entourage Preferences listed as the "kind." These files are system or third party-related and do not involve Microsoft applications. Somehow, the file associations have all changed. A handful of my Files in Users/Library/Preferences have also changed.

Microsft says they cannot duplicate this and that there have been no other reports of the problem. I have found nearly 50 other Macs owned by various individuals and companies that have the same problem.

If you see these in your System Folder/Preferences folder, please post a reply here and note the version of OS X that you are using. Also, please tell Microsoft. Thank you.
