Customer Question
Every time I load...

Every time I load Word, it asks if I want to update. I do and download the uupdates, but it seems odd that every time I load Word there is an available update. How can I get Word or other office programs to stop this or is it the new standard?

Technician's Assistant: What device or product does this involve?

Word and Exel

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

It's a Dell PC

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

It's been more than a month. The only thing I've done is download the updates but I do not get a message that they have been installed.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
