    "Microsoft AU daemon
    The AU daemon is associated with the Microsoft AutoUpdate application. That application can be set to check for updates to MS Office at particular intervals. It does so by way of that daemon."

    from The Entourage Help Page Glossary

    This is the software that automatically checks for updates to Microsoft Office. If you want to remove this, the best way is to run the "Microsoft AutoUpdate" program in your Applications folder and uncheck the auto-update selection.
