    I noticed a supposed Microsoft EULA popping up any time I
    try to access a Microsoft application. It won't allow me
    to use the program (for example excel, outlook) unless I
    accept the EULA. I do not want to accept for fear that
    it is spyware, etc. Please assist.

  2. You need to accept the Office EULA before you can use the Office
    programs. What makes you think it is not an authentic message?
