Update not working for Office Products

    Kind of strange....Windows update itself "appears" to be working. That is,
    if I go into Add and Remove Programs, and check Show Updates, it shows that
    Windows updates have been installed. But I have 5 Office-related product
    updates that I have tried over and over and over to apply, with no success.
    No error codes--it just tries to install each and just shows "....failed"
    after each one, every time. I get the shield down in the taskbar every day
    telling me that updates are ready to install, but same result every time.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob
