  1. MS Office no longer works after August 2020 Windows 10 update


    The latest Windows 10 update installed itself yesterday. MS Office 2013 no longer works - clicking on a file just gets the busy wheel for a moment, then nothing. Trying to Open does nothing. Going to the Start button and opening Office does nothing. Running Quick Repair gets a message 'can't help'. RUnning On-line Repair says it can't help and provides a link to the Repair and Support tool. I've installed that and it has been running to uninstall Office "This may take a few minutes" for the last forty minutes and rising. No indications of progress so I think it's stalled. What a pile of garbage!

    MS Office no longer works after August 2020 Windows 10 update

    Windows 10 update being enabled.

    srlsly? Looks like MS nerfed it then. Hope you get it sorted.

    I have to confess that I've not paid much attention to it and didn't bother updating it, although I probably should have.
