My updates are set to off just because I wish to initiate them manually. I will return with the missing info later

Same here now as well.

I cannot update my Office 2013 install. "Microsoft Update" has disappeared completely from the web. In both IE11 and in Firefox. There is no way that I can see to get to that webpage anymore.

Hello Totte/VP.

Please ensure your running the latest windows update agent
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949104

Then check the registry value here and amend if neccessary

Open Regedit
Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\General
Modify the "ShownFirstRunOptIn" value from 1 to 0
(Note office might show with version No

Launch a Microsoft Office component, it will give you the option to download the updates, make sure you select it.

Done, If you go back to "Windows Update", then "Change Settings", you will see the "Microsoft Update" and "Software notifications" sections are available again (until the Microsoft Update check box is unchecked again).

Awesome! Worked like a charm. Except the reg key is "ShownFirstRunOptin".

I just ran WU and see my Office updates.

Cheers!
