Can installing Microsoft Word templates and add-ins that have macros be risky? Yes, it can. The WordStar Command Emulator program contains macros to enable it to work and you must allow these macros to run if the program is to provide you with WordStar commands.

The WordStar Command Emulator is locked against changes to prevent unauthorised modifications. Word macro viruses are most likely to infect your file as this is the only template that the virus writer can guarantee you will have on your system.
