I understand that there is an update I need to install for Office 2008 to work on Mountain Lion. Currently, opening Word, Excel or Powerpoint stalls after a few seconds and I can't get into them. I can only download this update through one of these - but obviously I can't do this because they won't open...

Anyone know how to resolve this? Thanks!

Go to yourcomputer/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU and you should find the Microsoft Autoupdate program; double click it and it will fire up. Note that this is in the Library at the root level of your computer, NOT the Library in your user folder.
