After visiting the Windows Updates site on a couple of our Windows 7 SP1 computers which have Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 installed, the machines were offered approximately 12 separate updates for the Office installation. I selected all of the updates, since they appeared to be appropriate for the computers and I then let them install. The installation went fine, the computer restarted, and a recheck at the Windows Updates site showed the updates seemed to install correctly. Everything seemed to go fine.
Unfortunately, when I went into the Control Panel-Programs and Features-Installed Updates section, everything was wonky. Some of the updates for today showed as installing two or three times and some of the older updates now have an installed date of 12/09/14. Still, I've seen no problems with the updates other than their being listed "bad" in the "Installed Updates" section.
I may do a little testing to see if there is a fix, but it would be interesting to know if others with MS Office 2010, or even Office 2007 had the same issue. In addition, I can't seem to fine the individual downloads for the files on the Microsoft Download Center. Maybe they're also seeing the problem and are holding back the updates.
Hope this helps.
