    After installing some Office 2003 products I get this message in my event log:

    A provider, OffProv11, has been registered in the WMI namespace, Root\MSAPPS11, to use the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.

    Can this provider be trusted, should it be modified to use the Local Services account?

    I know I'm fairly new to this forum but any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
