Questionable Pop-Up in Microsoft Word 2010 Requesting to Send Information to Microsoft RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    After writing a document and about to exit it, I received a strange Pop-Up / dialog box with the title: "Send this information to help Microsoft improve proofing tools".

    The dialog box had an amazing amount of information from previous documents, that it said was from my "use of spelling checker, grammar checker, thesaurus, and hyphenation tool." that it was preparing to send to "Microsoft" and my question is, "Is this is a legitimate function of Microsoft Word 2010?"

    It had two links: "Read our data collection privacy statement." and "Don't send, and don't ask me again."

    It also offers me three buttons: "Send Now", "Send Later" and "Don't Send"

    Once again, would like to know if this is a "legitimate" function of the Microsoft Word 2010 product and if it can be disabled.

    Thanks,

    Lloyd
