I see the update for KB2825635 - so what I see is the same as shown in Britton30's post #5 here:

This one has me puzzled...why would an Office 2010 update be offered to a system that has Office 2007 ?

I'm not sure I want to apply this update ...
I'd asked the same thing a couple of updates back. Someone suggested, Noel I think, that some Office 2010 components are used to update the 2007 version. I usually get 1 or 2 updates for 2010 each month and have installed them without issues.

uh oh, what have I done wrong?! I checked for my updates after doing some reading here (never thought about it earlier 'cuz I generally don't see them 'til Wed) & just about wet my drawers, only had 1, for IE9!!!!!!!!

my bad, that 1 was still left from the 'out of band' of 1st part of May. When I checked for updates on Wed. I had a new one for IE plus 5 others including MSRT.

I just updated and things went OK with this oddity:

I do have Office 2010. I was offered and accepted KB2825635, which is related to Office 2010, along with 10 or 15 other things.

I rebooted and was again offered KB2825635. I figured the first update attempt had failed, so I accepted it again and rebooted.

I was again offered the same update. So I looked at update history and see that both of my previous update attempts had in fact succeeded.

So, I don't know what this is all about, but I'm not yet going to update it for the third time. I'll wait and see if it continues to be re-offered.

robinb9. Both of those Windows 7 updates are important. See attached screen shot.

I installed all the Windows updates this morning, 51Mb total. Required one restart & all installed without any problems.

I also checked with Adobe for the Adobe Reader XI update & that was installed. This update is 11.0.7 which updated from 11.0.6.

I've hidden KB2952664 again as I don't intend to "upgrade" Windows 7, and have installed the other 6 updates on my gaming machine. No problems encountered, and all very quick. Assuming no problems emerge then I'll install the same updates plus a myriad of Office updates (about 7 or so, I think) on my work machine in a day or two.

This is for the 1st one you noted.
