    Windows Update Microsoft Office 2010 but not on laptop

    Hi. I'm on Windows 8.1 and have Microsoft Office 2007. I'm getting an update for Microsoft Office 2010 in Windows Update even though I haven't got this. Anyone know why please? Thanks.

    Have a look in programs and features, some other Microsoft Software may have installed something like Microsoft Access Database engine 2010, or something similar. Windows update may classify it as being part of Office 2010. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
