Install Critical Updates for Microsoft Office

NOTE:  In order to perform these steps, you must have Administrator privileges on your Microsoft Windows computer. 

This process will run in all user profiles, regardless of permission level, once these steps have been completed by the system administrator.

Microsoft offers a way to check your Office installation to see if you need any security updates.

When you visit the Office Downloads page, you have the option of allowing the Microsoft website diagnose your Office installation and alert you to any important security updates that are available.  This will ensure that you have all of the current security updates for your Microsoft Office software.

You should check every month or so to see if there are any new updates you need.

To install the Critical Updates for Microsoft Office, go to the Microsoft Web site and choose the "Check for Updates" link.  You should now follow the instructions on the screen to install all of the Office Updates.
