Event ID 1039 warnings in Event Viewer after update

Last Modified: 2015-12-03
After installing the latest November windows updates to my WIN7PRO64 machine, I got many warnings 1039 in the event viewer. All read like this "Product: Microsoft Office Single Image 2010. The application tried to modify a protected Windows registry key \Software\Classes\CLSID\{25336920-03F9-11CF-8FD0-00AA00686F13}\InprocServer32." Three quarters mentioned Office Single Image 2010, a quarter were similar but the product was Visio. They were the only two update that generated warnings -- 32 warnings.

I checked immediately to see if the updates had in fact been installed. They were, all listed as successful. I ran windows update again to see if some or all of the updates would reappear, and they do not. The computer seems to be running fine.  Then I went back in time in the event viewer and found the same warnings for the last three or four times windows issued updates to Office products. Same warning message with each group of updates. All of which were successfully installed.

Anyone know why I get these warnings after every update install?
