Office update problem
Hello. When I go to windows update everything is fine. When I click on the office update link I get huge text on site. I don't mean big I mean HUGE!. Adjusting text size does not help much as it is still huge. I am unable to apply latest patch because I am unable to navigate to acceptance of conditions. Anyone else experiencing this?
Here is the text at smallest setting: http://www.quickbase.com/up/8q9jbnau...eg/va/text.JPG

Can someone give me the url to the actual update that I need (at office update - right after lic agreement? I think I need to go through office update because I threw away the office install files and i'm unable to install the update without windows update service. I am able to get to the licensing agreement but I am not able to scroll down to click "ok" to start the install.

I presume you are trying to install the update for Office 2003 ??
Direct link can be found in this thread.

Thanks Reverend, but as I stated in that thread and this: I cannot install that update without the help, I think, of windows update as I am missing files necessary - maybe due to discarding install files upon completion. Office update does indeed inform me of the update but I am unable to reach the install link.
This is what I see using Office2003-kb828041-client-enu.exe
I am assuming that office update service would install the update whether or not I have the missing file.

You need the CD,or the install files on your system so that the .CAB can find the necessary files to overwrite and update.

Damn, a re-install is in order....... But there is still the issue of office update website.

What is your Encoding setting under "view".
Should be set as "Auto-select"

only works with IE. I forgot that I made a backup of the CD's so I got the update installed. I still have the problem with office update though.

Delete your temp internet cache,and restore defaults.
Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab.
