Windows 7: Windows Update can't find Office 2010 Updates

Windows Update can't find Office 2010 Updates

Hi, I recently formatted my Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I installed all of the software which I run on it without any problems.

When I try to update Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (32bit) Windows Update only finds a few updates, and after they're installed it doesn't find anymore updates. It doesn't even find Office 2010 SP1.

{Note: I had no problems with other updates like Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or other Microsoft updates.

I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and installing it again but nothing changed. The privacy settings which show up the first time you run an Office application I set it as "Recommended settings".
I also tried downloading Office 2010 SP1 (32bit) and when I tried to run it an error came up saying something like version mismatch (I presume that you need to install other updates before running the setup & I also tried to download an other update but the same error came up.)
I didn't have this problem before I formatted the computer.}

I hope I gave a detailed description of my issue, and thanks.

I also face this issue, but after in reinstall Windows7 then everything again OK. So try to reinstall Windows7 using your CD. Its not a Office problem i think its Windows issue (configuration).
