I am having a problem using the micosoft updates to update Office to Service Pack II. I have tried to follow Microsoft directions on there website for updating without original discs but cannot get this to work. I purcahsed the computer with Office already installed and only received a recovery disc (3 infact) but none of these have to correct file that the update requires. Any Ideas on how to get around this problem as obviously the SPII update has far better security and options.

Thanks

Go here for Microsoft Update which will check XP and Office

If you get Service Pack 3, which includes all updates, the file size for install without Office CD is 50mb plus, you should get offered this
