I note that I have, waiting to download, a very big update:-  The 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 3 (SP3). (275.7 MB)   I remember some years ago that huge updates with Service Packs caused all sorts of trouble ? is it safe to download this one?  I would appreciate the advice of the Computer Group members.   Margaret

I can't really comment on this specific issue but if you back up all your data first and perhaps backup the whole disc you should be OK to upgrade with the security that you can go back if all fails.  I suspect it will work fine.

Many thanks for your comments.   I did the download a few days - it took 25 minutes - quicker than the 2 hours 17 minutes they had predicted!  So far it hasn?t caused any trouble!  COMPUTERS!!!!!!
