Changing Recommended Update settings for Office 2010 in Win 8 Pro

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't know where to post this so I'm posting it here.

I installed Win 8 Pro 64-bit. Followed all the optimization steps listed in one of the essential threads in the HDD/Storage Forum. Changed the Windows Updates setting to "Check for updates but do not download them" (That's the way I

like it).

Then I installed Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 32-bit (by mistake, I wanted the 64-bit version). However I chose the update settings to Recommended for the Office programs. When I found my mistake, I uninstalled Office and

reinstalled the 64-bit version. However this time it didn't ask me for customization of the settings at the end of the install.

Later on when I checked Windows updates, the settings had changed to "Automatic Updates". I tried changing the settings back by to no avail. The drop down menu for the update option method that I want is selected in the settings, but

the main screen of Windows update still says "You are set or configured for automatic updates" (or something like that).

Seems like Office Update also changes the Win 8 Windows update settings. I searched the internet and found out that I could change the update settings for Office by going into the File Tab> Help> Update Options. However when I go there, I can't see "Update Options", All I see is "Check for Updates".

I ran service.msc and shutdown Windows Update service (It's set to Manual (Trigger start). Then went to the windows updates and found my old settings restored. However if I click in Office for "Check for Updates" it opens up a webpage and the settings get reversed in Windows updates also (Automatic Updates).

Is there a way to customize office or change the update settings to the ones I like permanently (to be able to choose which updates to download and install for both Win8 and Office 2010) instead of going to the services.msc (to revert

my settings) every time I check for Office updates?
