    Is there still an Office update site similar to windows update? I see the new microsoft update but I'm always leery of MS because they do stuff behind your back. Does this work the same as windows update? Is there anything to be wary of? I like to download and then install myself but the microsoft download center makes it a lot of work to find all the appropriate updates.

    When you choose to use Microsoft Update instead of Windows Update, you get fixes for products other than Windows. Office is among those products. Microsoft update works the same way as Windows Update.

    The Express listing usually covers only security patches. But these may include entire service packs or new versions of IE, so read the descriptions carefully if you want to stay on an old version.

    The Custom listing often includes hardware or device patches. Before installing those, check with the vendor to ensure that they are in fact correct and current.
