Windows 7 not detecting Office updates

Question: Windows 7 not detecting Office updates

How do I get Windows 7SP1 to detect updates for Office 2007?

In the update settings, I only have two checkbox options.

I look at another Windows install and they have four checkboxes, one of which says something like "include updates for other Microsoft products".

I have tried the following:

1. Downloaded the latest windows update agent.
2. Change some registry setting for Office from 1 to 0 to get it to show "Microsoft Update" opt-in screen when you start an Office program.

None of that worked.

(Btw, this is happening inside a virtual machine. Could this be the problem, windows doesn't update Office inside a VM?!?!?)

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 not detecting Office updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows 7 not detecting Office updates

The VM shouldn't have anything to do with your problem.

Probably the thing to do is to reset Windows Update to default, and work from there.

I encountered an issue that the windows update is detecting old updates (2014, 2016). It could not get the latest one (January) though the servers are being patched monthly (last patch is Dec 2017).

Before I encounter the issue, I performed a C drive clean-up and deleted large files under C:\windows\installer\$PatchCache$\Managed. Though last month, I also performed this but did not encounter any issue. The difference is, I did not remove all the large
files (100 MB) and on this month, I removed the remaining files.
I also removed old virus definitions on the server.
Can you please help me with this issue? How can the servers detect the latest windows update?
Your response is highly appreciated! Thanks!

i remember with windows xp and office, you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer, and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office, and after you did that then when you went to the normal windows (xp) update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available. That was with office 2007 anyway.

i use a dell restore cd for windows 7 professional, on a dell pc obviously, to install win7 from scratch.
I can do windows updates no problem.
I have microsoft office 2010 professional plus with a valid license key, these are provided by my IT dept.
Office installs fine, during the install i can go through the options and install excel, powerpoint, all shared tools, and so on. Once installed, it works fine. There is no service pack installed at this point.

From here if I go windows update, I never see anything for office.
From within office, Microsoft Word file menu help for example, it shows office is activated and if i click on check for updates there it then opens an IE window which says updates can be done from start menu - programs - windows update. If i do that, it's a normal windows operating system update and I get nothing for office.

Answer:not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

Hi, I searched before asking this and it's probably a very simple answer. I have removed Windows Office from my laptop. Now using Open Office. Am I correct in thinking that it is safe to ignore all Windows Updates for any Office application? Plus, is it safe to remove any that were installed prior to my switch to OO. Although, I would think they went with Office when it was uninstalled.

Thanks for your help.

I've got Office 2003 Student Edition (all installed, minus Outlook). I haven't done any updates to it. I did not install the Microsoft GDI+ Detection tool. And I only visit Windows Update (not Microsoft Update) and install the critical updates under custom install.

I'm wondering:

1. Are the updates for MS Office that are critical security things included when you do Windows Update? (For example, there are a number of things listed here towards the bottom: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2232 -- would those have been included in the last batch of critical Windows updates?

2. Do you need the GDI+ thing to do Office Updates?

3. When you go to the Office Updates site, it wants you to install and run some kind of Active X thing. Is this necessary? And can it cause any problems?

4. Can doing critical Office updates (separate from whatever, if anything, that comes with Windows Update) cause any problems or conflicts with other things on your computer?

Thanks for the help!

1. No. You either do Windows update and Office update, or you do Microsoft update, which does both at once.

2. I think so, but I am not positive. If you need it, it will install it, or, if you decline, you may not get updates. One way to find out, try it.

Answer:How Important Are Ms Office Updates? Are They Included In Windows Critical Updates?

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature. You can also navigate to the Office updates site from the windows update site. There are no problems with installing the office updates separately. In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

I don't even have MS Office Suite installed ... do I need to install the security 'patches' ?

What is confusing is that IE security updates are necessary for Windows even though I don't use IE.

Answer:Windows Security Updates For Office Needed If Don't Use Office?

IE is part of Windows, so you will see updates for it whether you use it or not. If you are seeing updates specifically dealing with Office, then you have it or some part of it installed. You don't get updates for a product that isn't there.

Answer:Cannot set option to include Office updates in Windows Updates

Hi there

When you installed office did you install from an ISO or somewhere like MSDN download. For these Office will be updated in the normal Windows update (set in the options of windows update to get updates for ALL Ms products rather than just Windows).

If you installed via the Online application then you can get updates by going into Office Account and then clicking the Update Office icon. These won't be handled by the standard check for updates in windows update. This is for Office 2016 and Office 365. For Office 2010 there's no change -- don't know about Office 2013 --never used it.

Cheers

I am using Office 2013 Pro & it does not show updates in the normal Windows Update section on my computer. I have to refer to any Office application, select File & then Accounts to see that I have automatic updates selected & the update number, but it does not tell me if it is the latest update, so I have to check to see that it is the latest, which it is apparently.
I would like to be able to see which Office updates are available & to install them as I do with the usual Windows Updates. Can anyone suggest a solution please.

Answer:How do I get Office 2013 updates to show in Windows Updates.

Just a random thought. Does your computer have the "Click-to-Run" version of Office installed? Updates for the C2R version do not appear in Windows Update or WSUS. Updates are downloaded in the background automatically (whether you want them to or not).

You can identify C2R by looking under the File tab. There will be a button that shows update options (on or off) and the version number. Another way to identify C2R is in Window's Programs & Features. With C2R, you no longer have the ability to add or delete Office applications.

Hi,
I am having trouble with my windows installation after attempting to install windows 10 a second time on the same machine, but different partition.
I have used a bootable USB device with the windows 10 installation (created with the same machine and the same settings for OS).
After pressing F12 and selecting the USB as the boot device, i started the installation process and got to the stage where you select which drive / partition to install windows. But the list only contained the USB device i used to start the installation process, and the SSD did not appear when tried to refresh / reload drives (or unchecked the "hide incompatible drives" checkbox). 
After canceling the installation process, i was met with the following message when rebooting windows:

Answer:windows and office updates

Well my first question is why would you want to uninstall the updates? these are issues to patch security flaws, or to improve functionality of the software. My advise would be to NOT uninstall any of the updates as it could potentially cause problems.

If you want to go back to the state when you bought the machine you could use the inbuilt factory restore feature (if you have that) and return your machine to the factory state which is probably the best way to go if you are experiencing problems. Otherwise please describe your predicament and we could perhaps offer some advice as to the best approach for resolving it.

I've used copy and paste from web site antiguaobserver.com for years without bother. Since the 25 April I have noticed the title Observer gets chopped off at the bottom after the new Office updates were installed. I decided to reinstall Office 2010 and copy and paste again; this worked as usual however, when the new updates are installed again the chopping off of the title reoccurs, which leads me to believe Office updates are the problem. I've done a Word repair which did nothing to help and am frustrated and at a loss what to do next. Can anyone solve this problem, any ideas?

Answer:Windows Updates And Office 2010

It looks to me more likely to be a problem with the website - it appears to be written in compliance with IE versions 6, 7, and 8 rather than more modern ones.
Having said that, it seems to be a Wordpress-based site - so if the version has been updated properly, then it should be compliant with later versions of IE as well. As far as I can tell, it's based on v4.2.1, which is the latest version.

However, Word itself is notoriously bad at interpreting HTML (and even worse at writing it).

Hello,

I was hoping that someone could answer my quick question. I'm not 100% sure that this is the correct forum or if it should be in Windows Xp, so my apologies if it's in the wrong one.

I had to reinstall Office 2003 and was wondering if you have to re-download and/or uninstall and reinstall the Windows Updates for Office Software? I know these updates fix some pretty vulnerable issues in Office and would like to ensure that they are working on my PC.

More generally, do Windows Updates patch the Windows OS or the application/program itself? (I have no idea if this makes sense)

Thanks in advance for any insight.

//Mod edit: This post split away from older thread HereA purchase of a cheap hp printer and XP Home sent me to find and install Office 2000 and Word 2000 upgrades to get the printer to work.

What version of Office are you using?. If you are using Office 2013 updates do not show in the usual Windows Updates at all. Office 2013 updates occur automatically in the background. You can set Updates by opening one of the Office applications, select File & then select Office Account & you will see a box saying Office Updates click on that & drop down menu will show some Update alternatives & you can get it to Update Now if you wish to see if you are up to date. See attached screen shot.

You can check in Control Panel, Programs & Features, Microsoft Office 2013 to see when the last update version was installed & it series number.

Three months ago, I uninstalled Office 2010 and installed Office 2013.

Yet Windows Update keeps sending me updates to Office 2010. Why?

(I have Windows 7 x64 if that matters.)

The only legacy Office thing I have left on my machine is something called "Microsoft Office Small Business Connectivity Components." I was afraid to uninstall it because I didn't know what it did. What does it do, and can I safely uninstall it?

But Windows Update keeps sending me updates to Microsoft Office 2010, so I'm wondering if that could be the reason?

Answer:Office 2010 uninstalled but still getting Windows Updates

"Microsoft Office Small Business Connectivity Components" probably accompanied Office 2010 and I think as long as it's on the computer the updates will see it.

There are a number of things that can break Windows Update in Windows XP, including performing a repair/reinstall. For a fix, try these next steps:

Open Notepad or WordPad and copy/paste the following text:

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml2.dll
regsvr32 qmgr.dll
regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll
end

Save the file to your desktop as UpdatesFix.cmd (you'll have to click the "Save As Type…. Dropdown arrow on the right of the selection window and select "All Files" before you click the Save button).

If you'd rather not try the batch file, you can enter each line in the Run box one at a time and click OK after each one.

Double-click the UpdatesFix.cmd file; a command window will open, and you'll see a series of dialogue boxes saying DLLRegisterServer in *.dll succeeded. Click OK to step through the process.
Once all the dll's have been successfully reregistered visit the Windows Update site and try the Windows updates again to see if it works correctly.
Often you will have to download and install Windows Installer 3.1 and the Windows Genuine Advantage tool before you can download any more updates.

Hi, I recently formatted my Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I installed all of the software which I run on it without any problems.

When I try to update Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (32bit) Windows Update only finds a few updates, and after they're installed it doesn't find anymore updates. It doesn't even find Office 2010 SP1.

{Note: I had no problems with other updates like Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or other Microsoft updates.



I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and installing it again but nothing changed. The privacy settings which show up the first time you run an Office application I set it as "Recommended settings".

I also tried downloading Office 2010 SP1 (32bit) and when I tried to run it an error came up saying something like version mismatch (I presume that you need to install other updates before running the setup & I also tried to download an other update but the same error came up.)

I didn't have this problem before I formatted the computer.}

I hope I gave a detailed description of my issue, and thanks.

Hi,

I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.

I have Office 2013 Professional Plus.

Whenever I check Windows Update for updates, it never seems to bring up updates for Office.  I assume there have been at least some updates to Office 2013 since it was released?

My Windows Update screen tells me:

"You receive updates: For Windows only."

When I click the "Find out more" to get updates for other MS products, all that happens is the IE opens up on a page that says "Use your Start menu to check for updates"

So... how do I get Windows Update to check for updates to Office 2013?  I feel very confused--I mean, shouldn't I be able to set Windows Update to check for updates for a whole host of MS programs (Silverlight, .NET, Office, etc.)?
I've tried changing the Windows Update settings to include other Microsoft products but there's no option to do so when I check.

Any insight would be appreciated! Someone recommended I ask here because I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise.

Answer:Windows Update won't find updates for Office 2013?

So the thing that finally worked was installing Silverlight, which apparently can force Windows Update to include/adopt Microsoft update.  Once that was installed, Windows Update recognized a huge number of Office updates.

Why no other avenues to make the Microsoft Update option show up and get it "switched on" worked is totally beyond me.

Hello!

I would have thought this a common problem, but all I've found on 3 pages of search hits and 5 pages in this forum is about upgrading from 32-bit to 64-bit (or vice versa). Still, I'll bet it's an easy one for you guys!

I have been trying to get Windows auto updates to stop telling me about updates I don't want/need (I don't use Outlook, but keep getting popups telling me to install updates for Outlook). While studying my current list of updates, I noticed that nearly all updates installed yesterday for MS Office 2007--7/11/12--say they are 32-bit. Here's what I'm running:

Dell Inspiron 620, Intel Cor i5-2320 CPU @3.00 GHz 3.)) GHz, RAM 6.00GB, Sys type 64-bit

Will my Office 2007 run okay?

And how safe & simple is it to upgrade from Windows 7 SP1 to SP2?

Thank you!

I read in one of the forums to go into Safe Mode and open Control Panel , which I did and from there removed the IE6 and Outlook Express updates.

I have uninstalled office 2010 using Revo uninstaller so there are no traces
Am I missing something.

Answer:Office 2010 and Office 2013 both updates available

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

Cheers
jimbo

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it?

Hi,

I've got Office 365 and it seems every time there are major updates to Office and or Windows updates as was yesterday...



Office 365 goes crazy and errors out if files ore accessed from OneDrive...



This happens every time there are major Office updates Most of the times the issue can be fixed by going to Account Options and clicking update Office, which works, but we shouldn't have to do that every time there's and update.



At any rate it seems Office suddenly forgets where files are located after updating and you have to physically go into OneDrive, click the actual file and re-link to a shortcut. In some instance you get an "incompatible" error as seen above even when directly clicking the file inside of OneDrive. You can ignore it, and the file will open, but once the file is closed when you attempt to open it again, you will still get the same error. Seems I may have to open it, and re-save it again

Anyway anyone else notice this issue? How do you re-solve it?

Question: Office updates

I have an emachines et1331g desktop. The desktop came with Windows 7 and office 2007 (trial version) already installed. I uninstalled the office 2007 using control panel right away because I had office xp pro that I wanted to use instead. Although I uninstalled office 2007, I kept getting updates for 2007. When using Windows 7, I had the option to hide the updates and not install them. That worked to keep them from downloading. After upgrading to Windows 10, I cannot keep windows from downloading them. My question is: Why does windows update think I still have the office 2007 installed? There is no office 2007 showing in installed programs. Is there a way to prevent the updates for office 2007 that supposed to be uninstalled? I have office xp pro that works well with 7 and 10.

Answer:Office updates

First, I would be remiss if I didn't warn you that Office XP is no longer supported, and thus it has known vulnerabilities that attackers can take advantage of to install viruses and malware. You really should upgrade to a more modern version of Office. Office XP is 15 years old.

To answer your question, when you install a version of Office and then uninstall it, it leaves behind bits and pieces that still register with the Windows Update system, and thus Windows Update installs updates. These might be things like language versions, or other apps. You might want to check your Program Files folders for remnants of it. There is also a tool you can download from Microsoft to completely remove any given version of Office.

Just recently, I signed up to get Microsoft's weekly updates for Office. I went to click on the update, and I get a message indicating that the .MSP files are missing, so they can't update me. Crawled all over the Microsoft Office help site, but since I bought the PC from Dell, they won't help me. I've attached a screenshot of what I get when I go to update. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi, I reinstalled my husbands computer with Windows 7 ultimate 64 bits and ran all the windows updates. Then I installed Office 10, but when I open "Windows Update" and click on the "check for updates" there are no updates listed for Office. As I know, MS usually has tons of updates for everything. Where can I find them?
 

Answer:Are there any updates for Office 10?

Office 10 is very old and no longer supported.

BUT, if you mean Office 2010 then there should be all kinks of updates.
Have you activated this install of Office 2010?

So I did a clean install of Win10 1709 and I had a problem with some things which then it appeared that doing another clean install should fix them and it did. But now I just realized a new problem. I am using WUMT and I am getting the Windows updates, but I am not getting the Office 2010 updates at all. Then I looked and in Settings > Update& Security > Windows Update it says at the top "*Some settings are managed by your organization" so I clicked on View configured update policies and under Policies set on your device it says "Exclude drivers from Windows quality updates". Source Administrator. Type Group Policy

So I went to gpedit and I don't see anything popping out at me with this.

I went back a page and then clicked "Advanced Options" from the main page and under "Choose how updates are installed" the box is unchecked. So I tried putting a check, but the moment I leave the page and come back it is unchecked again.

Is there a fix to this or please do not say I have to do another clean install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

There must be something I am missing, but I don't know.

EDIT: Well, now it is working. I have rebooted a few times, launches various programs and it is still active and I can see my Office 2010 updates. Wow, and I did nothing.

Question: office updates??

Dumb question maybe, but office really isn't something I deal with much.
What I need to know is just how important the service packs are?
I really don't like the way outlook handles attachments after the updates, and if I can keep from doing them safely I would prefer that.
I am running office 2000 premium although I also have 2003 pro. I just don't like the 2003 because it already slams attachments, and even hyperlinks.
I run windows xp home with zone alarm pro, and norton antivirus 2004 pro.
Also don't click on attachments unless I know who they are from, and usually save them to disk a scan them before opening.
With these precautions, do you guys think I am safe without the updates? I am really hoping so but I'll update if necessary. TKS folks, Scott

Question: Office Updates

I have been trying to get the latest Office XP Updates, but when I scan my PC from the office site I get this error message:Windows Installer patch files (.MSP files) from previously applied Office updates are missing from the \Windows\Installer hidden directory on your computer. MSP files are stored on your computer after update installation completes because they need to be referenced for future update operations. If the files are missing you will not be able to apply Office updates. You may also be unable to uninstall Office products as a result of the same problem. Please contact Microsoft Product Support for assistance. I have done a Google search about MSP files, but trying to install them is way over my head.I was asked to run the Command prompt and install..... I know where the command Prompt is.Has anyone got any idea how to fix this problem?Cheers.

I did that but can't find setup.hlp.
Would you be able to help me out with this. Thanks for your time.
 

Answer:Office updates

Your message is not clear. your syntax is a bit mixed up, so I am trying to follow. You are trying to install SP2 for Office XP. I assume, then, that you successfully installed SP1, which would be a prerequisite.

You mention that Windows asks for a Works disc. Very strange, and why would you have Works in your system if you have Office XP? That is like riding a tricycle when you own a Ferrari (some amount of value judgement expressed here, I could have said a Sherman tank, but I like Office XP).

So, why not get rid of Works, un-install it from your system. Then, again assuming that you have installed SP1 for Office XP, try installing SP2. Do it from the Microsoft website. If you had a download, get rid of it and start over. If you are successful, you are finished.

Now, if for some reason you really want or need Works (for the period of time in Works 4.0, Works's had much better templates, Microsoft assuming the user was an idiot), go ahead and re-install it.

I hope this helps.

In your next message, try to formulate better English, take more time, it is important for you to be understood.

I just bought a new PC and reinstalled Office 2007 on it. Naturally, I had to go through the process of downloading and installing all Office updates since my version was released and that went fine however, today Windows Update is notifying me of several security updates for Office 2003. Do I really need those please?

Answer:Are old Office updates necessary?

no i don't think you need office 2003 updates for your 2007 software.

to be certain, what exactly are these updates for?

First off, I'll start by saying that I DO have a legit copy of Office XP, thanks to my college and their software-obtainable programs that get them dirt-cheap for their students (YAY!)
Now, my problem is, I open up Word, TRY to update it, begin the download, but I CLOSE Word (cause it asks you to close all MS programs before install) and the install FAILS.

Is there a way to download and install the patch alternatively? Is there a mirror site that has these updates?

I have office 2003 and the updates will stop along with xp. How is MS office 2003 vulnerable? I can delete the mail account but are there other issues?
thanks
jim

Answer:Office 2003 updates

Yes there are. The problem is that when the updates cease any security improvements will also stop, so Office 2003 may become vulnerable to virus & other attacks. While these may not become apparent to you, until your computer actually stops working or has problems, you may inadvertently transmit infections to other users via email attachments etc..
Even if you are using another email program, Office 2003 is still on your computer. Using a good anti virus program will help, it may not stop eventual infection.
For peace of mind & safety it would be best to update your Office suite to a later version.

I'm curious...Included in the Windows Updates that I periodically get, there are occasionally included updates for Microsoft Office. I do not have Office installed on my computer other than the trial version that came with the computer, long since expired. I do, however, often use the Microsoft Works program. Is there a need, therefore, to continue including all the updates that come through for Microsoft Office (i.e. Excel, etc.)? Thanks.
 

Answer:Updates for Microsoft Office

It still sees the trial as being on your computer regardless of it being expired. Just uninstall the Trial and shouldn't offer you up any more updates for office.

Is it imperative that I update the Office Updates that Microsoft sends when all I have on my machine that is "Office" is the Word and Powerpoint Viewers. Seems like they send some very large files and I really don't want to 'clutter up' my hard drive with files I don't need.

Thanks for any and all help.
 

Answer:Solved: Office Updates

Hi Snoflake, welcome to TSG.

Whether or not you install the updates is up to you, but there are sometimes security vulnerabilities, even with just the viewers, that those updates can correct. If you don't want to install the updates, it might be a good idea to occasionally remove the viewers and reinstall them with the most current version from Microsoft, since those versions should contain the same fixes as the updates. Hope that helps.

Strange thing happened today.I have Windows XP and Office2003.When I went for Windows updates today, the list, besides Windows updates included four updates for Office 2003, which I installed. But it also included three updates for Office 2007. I skipped those.No idea what to do. Normally MS list corresponds to what I should have.I do have some sort of a compatibility pack installed long ago, but I doubt that's related.The updates at issue are KBs 2596880, 2596672 and 2597162. The descriptions include wording such as 'you may need your Office 2007 installation CD' which of course I don't have.Can someone knowledgeable about those updates tell me what to do? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Do I have to install these MS office updates

The updates at issue are KBs 2596880, 2596672 and 2597162. The descriptions include wording such as 'you may need your Office 2007 installation CD' which of course I don't have.Can someone knowledgeable about those updates tell me what to do? Thanks in advance.The first update updates security information in files.2nd updated listed = updates a big security hole in quite a few things(.net framework, Windows office, etc).3rd one is another security patch to stop remote exploits.Also these updates are used for more than 1 software package, mainly requires office 2003 service pack 3 at least and goes up in versions from there including office compatibility packs.Also you might have an office 2007 compatibility pack installed, which shouldn't need an installation cd for installing these updates.Since these are all mainly security updates, I would recommend you to install them.
