Scribus is the best than even Publisher, because Scribus support layers
while MS Publisher does not. Scribus is one of my favorite Graphics Package
although you can also use inkscape vector.

You can also prefer to implement local policy in your Microsoft PC, go to
start>run> then type mmc which you can set some policies on your local
pc...I know your running Microsoft Softwares in your environment so I
advice to check-out on the best way of managing the specific pc from
viruses than just running away from the problem.

Thanks, Karibu
