When launching Trados, Task Manager indicates that MS Word is also launching. It must be in the background as the actual Word application window is not launching. I can understand this is necessary for MS Spell checker or maybe when translating Word docs.

I'm just wondering if this is default behaviour or if this can be disabled in a setting somewhere.

Best regards,
