Windows 7: Windows Update 7/16/15 Crashes Office 2000

Windows Update 7/16/15 Crashes Office 2000

This probably doesn't apply to many users but I run Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and Office 2000.
I applied all the updates released today and Office was rendered inoperative (Not Responding). After reverting to the restore point I installed the updates one by one and found that the offending update was Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (x64) (KB890830).

Office 2000 has never been supported on WIndows 7 - for the simple reason that it was too old even in 2009 when Win7 was released, and it went totally out of support in 2010.
The MSRT is a Virus Removal Tool - it has probably been updated to deal with the recent massive surge in vba/macro malware, and caught your Office software tin the process.
Office 2000 is inherently insecure, and I really do recommend that you replace it.
