Missing updates

  hiwatt 12:15 05 Mar 2008

Hi there,belarc advisor is telling me that I'm missing these 4 important updates for windows.


I've tried searching microsofts page for them but can't find them.I'd be greatful if someone can tell me how to get these updates please.Thankyou.

Updates should be prefaced by KB and not Q:

First one in your list (if you replace the Q with a K) Is for ms works...You can try manually downloading them all this way (Substitute K for Q) From the same site.

Yeah I tried it with KB.For some reason belarc uses a Q.I tried manually searching for the other 3 from the site you provided and it says no matches found.How did you get that one?Thanks.

And the last is for publisher...Hope this helps...If you don't have these applications installed anymore, that's probably why Windows isn't trying to install them. Files left behind lead Belarc to think Office is still there.

Thankyou very much.I must admit I don't really use word or office,it's just that belarc said they were important updates yet windows says I'm up to date.Would you advise me to install them even if I dont use them?Thanks.

If Office is still on your system, then yes, Install them....Keeps everthing up to date.

They're downloading ok and then when it asks me if I'd like to install it,it just says "the update cannot be applied.Any ideas why this could be?Thankyou.

The version of M$ Office that you have on your PC, is not the Version that the Update is for!

Or....Is the copy genuine? If it's a borrowed copy, the updates will not install.
