    I have a new install of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.
    I have Windows Update running fine for Windows itself.
    I have installed Word & Excell from Office 2007, and have (with considerable
    effort) located the latest updates for them.

    At work, on Vista or Windows 7 Professional, the Office Update/Microsoft
    Updates are integrated with Windows Update, and happen concurrently - a
    single "check for updates" scans for all, and automatic updates picks up all.

    NOT so here at home... I cannot persuade Windows Update applet to show any
    interest in Office. When I click the "find out more" button, I get a "needs
    administrator privileges" error in IE8; if I disable UAC, I get the web-page
    for Windows Update (tells me I'm up to daye) with the tab for Office Updates,
    but that just shows up the useless "what people are downloading" - no
    priority for or gathering together of the real important security updates.

    What on earth do I have to do to integrate Office Update into the Windows
    Update applet?

    Have you opened Windows Update in Windows 7 and selected Change Settings
    from the list on the left? In Change Settings under Microsoft Update is the
    box for other Microsoft products checked?

    Did you ever get this resolved? If so, what was the solution?
