Office is updating
With the concerns about buggy patches, the seemingly wise move is to delay updating.
Updating Office or Windows you have the same unappealing choices: Naturally enough, we’ll focus on Microsoft Office the same problems apply to Microsoft Windows.
I have ticked "give me updates of other Microsoft components also".
I see Windows update updating non-installed components (Access, One Drive, One note, Outlook, Power Point, publisher, Visio, Skype) also.
This has been a successful PR strategy, really too successful because even Microsoft staff and executives are blind to the problems.
Since Microsoft quickly forgets its own mistakes, they don’t design updating systems to cope with the problems that do arise.
