Update details

List of issues that the update fixes

This update for the 2007 Office programs fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Application errors may be sent to Microsoft without notifying you
Some 2007 Office programs that run on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 use Microsoft Application Error Reporting (DW 2.0) to report problems to Microsoft. If an unsafe COM control is detected, these programs may unintentionally send problem reports to Microsoft without first verifying that you have granted permission for the reporting operation. The problem reports that may be sent to Microsoft do not contain personal information.

This update makes a change to Microsoft Application Error Reporting (DW 2.0). This change helps make sure that DW 2.0 problem reports are sent only after you grant permission.

Microsoft is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. For more information about the end-user privacy policy in application error reporting, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
