  • Unfortunately the automated updates that work fine for Windows updates will not work with Office updates. No worry........:

    First logon as administrator.
    Open Control panel and select "User accounts and family settings".
    Open "User Accounts"
    Select "Change User Accounts Settings"

    Lower the "Notify Bar" to "Never Notify"......... Now open Windows updates and manually install the Office updates.
