I wanted to know if anyone knows why Microsoft put plugins under my add on area? It is all over my programs and computer so that makes no sense to me? I would like to disable this if I doesn't cause problems on my computer. I use the photo gallery.

     OK    ANSWERED BELOW - The plug-in allows you to open and edit files using Microsoft Office applications
       * Office Authorization plug-in for NPAPI browsers

I also wanted to know how to put the missing software on in Firefox. I don't have Adobe Shock wave, or Java on my computer. I just did a recovery. I was going to do it from the software websites but there are some odd things happening out side your sites that I don't like. This will be such a nice home for me!

Thanks

Microsoft did not put plugins in with add-ons - Mozilla did.
