|I moved this to the Office forum. I recommend that you NOT use auto updates. IMO that is just another method to dumb down control of your computer. |
At the most, use notifications and then go to the site using custom instead of express. Review each update to determine if you want to install it. If there is a critical update for Office then by all means install it. I NEVER allow Microsoft to install any hardware updates (drivers). If it has problems then go to the manufacturer's site for updated drivers.
If you don't want to do that then you can change the parameters to notify and when going there you can mark NOT to show anymore updates like that.
When using Windows 7 you have a Windows update program listed under the Start button. Go there and choose settings, then make changes as desired.
