    following your advice when i click “check for updates” it sends me to windows updates. Does windows updates update MS office. How could we update MS office without updating windows or do they go hand in hand.

    Why is this helpful? All that has to be done is to have your updates on your computer turned on and let Microsoft do what ever they want to your system. How about offering the updates for those of us that do not want Microsoft walking all through our systems but are still shackled their programs till an better alternative emerges. That would be worth spending time posting.
