Chuck, I did some research, and now believe that you should just forget about these patches for the time being. Chances are MS messed up [infoworld.com], and the patches will be re-offered ad nauseam until they fix it.

Thanks so much for this info, dale. Guess I should have googled the patch names.

I run vista on my laptop & don't find any problems with the OS for updates.

It could the program software (MS Office) itself that is causing the problem.

Thanks, MMM

It looks like that's what happened. I feel better; I'm not infected (I don't think).
