I tried to attach a microsoft word document to an email and gmail wouldn't accept it, said it had a virus. I then used my work email account and the same thing occurred. The next time I opened the file, a message came up asking me if I wanted to disable macros (this hasn't happened before). I didn't intentionally create a macro, I'm kind of vague on what a macro is. Can I get microsoft word to get rid of the macros? Maybe the macros are being detected as viruses. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Your best bet is to have Word remove the macro's from the document, have a read of this:
