I'm trying to install a microsoft update on my mac and can't as I keep getting a message saying I have to close the following programmes:

Microsoft database Daemon

Sync servicesagent

Unfortunately, I can't find either to shut down (not there in force quit window) and so can't update my software.

Help please?
