    You should get updates for Office 2010 as part of the normal updates, unless you have only allowed Windows updates.

    What version of Windows are you on?

    Turn on or opt-in to Microsoft Update in Windows Update. That will then deliver you any Office updates in addition to the Windows updates.

    That usually means you've opened the Update site in another web browser like Firefox or Chrome. You can only get to that page in Internet Explorer.

    The other option is to use this program:
    http://download.wsusoffline.net/

    Run it and let it download shed loads of stuff but then you can use all that both to update Windows and Office at the same time.

    see this https://www.askwoody.com/2016/how-to-restore-give-me-updates-for-microsoft-products/

    and the accompanying comments https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/how-to-restore-give-me-updates-for-microsoft-products/

    Looks like a few potential solutions there

    1) Registry fix

    or two simpler solutions

    2) Install silverlight (you can uninstall after) - see post 24401 on above thread


    3 Add a new user account (you can delete after) - see post 24409 on above thread
