Lots of websites seem to be displaying the following text...

Office Suite 2010 also has very refined Office 2010 Diagnostics Tool, which can be used to fix issues and problems that might occur in the Microsoft Office Applications. The Microsoft Office 2010 Diagnostics Tool would initiate a series of tests and checks to straighten out all issues that might arise in your software, and try to fix them. It also provides a step by step guide to fixing such issues, which are highly informative for the user as they can use it to solve their problems anytime they occur. This Diagnostics Tool helps users find flaws and errors and guides them how to get their way around it. The Setup Diagnostic option checks for and corrects all errors and corrupted data in the files as well as the registry entries of the Microsoft Office Suite 2010. Such files might be corrupted by viruses, spamware or malware and can be reinstalled with the help of the Office 2010 Diagnostic Tool. The Disk Diagnostic system is to check with problems that might be associated with the user's hard disk. Such problems might be caused by bad sectors, or the errors that are logged in by Windows itself.

The Memory Diagnostic function checks your computer's Random Access Memory for any kinds of errors or glitches. This Diagnostics Tool also contains an Update Diagnostic, which automatically checks whether your Office applications are up to date and do not require any new additions. It has a link with the Microsoft website, and constantly keeps updating when necessary. The Compatibility Diagnostic checks for versions of Microsoft Outlook which might be installed on your computer, and which might cause errors or conflicts with your system. It removes the previous one and copies all your data into the latest Microsoft Office 2010. The Check For Known Solutions checks the log system for solutions that might be logged in the Microsoft Office which can be used to troubleshoot further problems that might be caused by the Office Suite 2010.
