Update Microsoft Office 2007

I just loaded Microsoft Office Professional onto my computer. What additional plugins, or service packs should I download to make it work?

My Access isn't properly talking to Outlook. I am hoping this is due to some sort of update/service pack, etc. It works on my old computer perfectly.

Actually, you have to tell Windows to get updates for other non-Windows Microsoft products (only once - but you still have to tell it to - if you haven't already)   THEN Microsoft Update will give you updates for Office.

And you should fully patch office to the current levels, including service packs.

As for your problems, knowing exactly what they are could help solve them.  It could be an update, but you're running XP? WHY?  That in itself could be a compatibility issue with new office patches.
