When you start Office 2010 for the first time, you get a popup screen giving you a choice of whether or not to install Office updates automatically. If you choose this, Microsoft Update is installed. Once Microsoft Update is installed, when you go into Windows Update, you'll see the additional checkboxes including "Give me updates for Microsoft products...." which would include Office.

If you don't choose the automatic update when starting Office the first time, Microsoft Update isn't installed, you are never asked about it again, and Windows Update won't update Office.

The solution to this is to install Microsoft Update, which is a little tricky to find.

Go here:
Microsoft Update

It only takes a moment to enable Microsoft Update, and then you can update Office using Windows Update.

Works in IE

Just an FYI, the Microsoft Update link provided by guitarfish does indeed solve the problem, but only works in Internet Explorer. In Firefox or other browsers, the link redirects to a page stating the Windows Update site is defunct and you should launch Windows Update from the Control Panel.

Hi

I had the same issue. In Firefox, the link redirects to a site with two pics describing how to oben windows update which is not very helpful. Using Internet Explorer 10 as it was mentioned in previous posts, the link led to an empty site. However, I noticed the option for the compability mode in the adress bar to the left of the reload button. In compability mode, the site was displayed correctly and the windows update could be installed successfully and solved the issue. Now the windows update panel shows properly all options and check boxes in order to en-or disable microsoft and software updates.

I hope this solution might help you and other people.
