It might be easier to be sure your security software is updated, but I don't think it's the ultimate answer. Almost everyone in my employee's family are software writers, and none of them (repeat - none of them!) trust Norton or Kaspersky or any other security software, an they don't use them. They use Spybot and Malwarebytes, and every one of them uses this Word document strategy. And I know that when I uninstalled Norton and installed Spybot and Malwarebytes, my computer now runs about 10 times faster.
