I have a dell pc with microsoft office starter 2010. When I run microsoft word, my McAfee firewall asks me whether I want to allow file named "OFFSPON.exe" to access the internet. Since I didn't know what this file is meant for, I click "Block Access" in the McAfee firewall warning popup. The problem is that after I block the access to the above said "OFFSPON.exe", I am not able to connect to the internet. I have to reset the McAfee firewall in order to get back the internet connectivity. So I have 2 questions.
I moved this to Firewall 11 - 2010.
According to a Google search offspon.exe is the process that displays the rotating advertisements in Microsoft Office Starter Edition. Therefore you should allow it access.
Thanks very much
