Sorry took so long to reply.....
I am using Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010, 32-bit and, yes I do have an option to check for updates.
As part of my Office 2010 suite, in All Programs I have Excel, Outlook, Power Point, Word and Tools (digital certificate for VBA projects, clip oganizer, language preferences, upload center, picture manager, and anytime upgrade). On Product Activated, One-Note is also listed. My Windows Update is 316.9 MB.....there are programs that are part of MS Home and Business that I don't use/have and do not want to get added on.
Happy Fourth, Mark......Miki
