Important nonjoking notice: Microsoft Office Updates

Has anyone else installed the updates that came down the pipe today (April 18)? I've got the option where they'll tell me they've got an update, and 4 of them arrived today. Once I installed them I was no longer able to save files in any Office product (Word, Excel, etc.) I had to go through a pain in the neck process to figure out how to "un-update" the updates, and once I did, everything was fine.

So...did my download go awry, or are other people having the same problem?

If you downloaded it and have the same problem, you just have to go to "Add/Delete Programs" in the control panel, click the little box that says "Show Updates" and then remove the four updates that have today's dates.

Again, it may have just been a one-time glitch in my download, but it was a royal pain in the neck to figure out the problem, so I thought I'd share.

A mod can feel free to move this to geeksplanet (there's an oxymoron) once it has received a worthy amount of viewing.

Not true. If you watch the end of the 100-meter dash, they stop running at some point.

No. They just run in a different dimension.

Quitters never win.

Yep, the Windows Autoupdate screwed me over in exactly the same way over the weekend. I'm thinking of reinstalling Office, but hadn't got around to it. I can save files, but can't change directories within any Office product.

You should try just ininstalling the updates like I did.

What a royal pain in the neck.

I'm afraid auto-update will just install them again. Now that I've heard that my case is not unique, I'll wait a couple more days to see if they come out with a fix. If no word from MS by then I'll probably uninstall the updates.

Yes, a royal pain.

We had this happen on one of roughly 600 workstations at the office. Still haven't determined what made that particular PC special (other than the permanent ID-10-T error attached to this particular machine).

Well, that's odd.

My laptop works like a champ, and this is the only problem I've had with it. It's a bit older now, because I think I bought it in 2004 or something, and the hard drive is getting wicked full. My initial theory was that the installation was doing something to temporarily suck up a lot of disk space, which was preventing me from saving, but I have no idea if that's a valid theory or not.
