MS OFFICE security update repeatedly fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every day I receive the "warning" that security updates for Microsoft Office are missing. I go to the webpage, per link provided by OneCare and download the suggested update. I note that the downloaded file is 0 KB in size. The update never succeeds, and OneCare persists in reminding me that the update is needed.


    (See copy of information from website below.)


    I suspect this is an MS OFFICE problem following my recent crash and reinstallation of Windows and MS OFFICE 2003 trial version (which I am using until I can reinstall my licensed copy).


    Any suggestions?
