I purchased MS Office Home & Student 2007 in 2007, have happily used and continually updated Word 2007 since then, and planned to keep using it even after withdrawal of support in Oct 2017. But purchased utility SystemMechanic crashed my Win 10 system in January 2018. It is now fixed and running, and backed-up data is all there, but I've had to reinstall programs. So, I easily reinstalled Word 2007 from the H&S CD of 2007 with its 20-character Product Key. But, I now have the original 2007 version, with no updates. When I asked to update to what I had in Oct 2017, which included 10 years of MS updates, MS replied that support is withdrawn, so no updates will be supplied. Help -- is there some Website from which I can download Word 2007 updates, or must I shell out the $149 to purchase Home & Student 2016?

A perfect answer! macropod, whomever you are, thank you for that fast and accurate reply. Yes, Office 2007 SP3 required that I be at SP2, and it in turn required SP1. So I downloaded and installed, in order, SP1, SP2 then SP3 -- and have a much more up-to-date Word 2007, which I treasure. Thank you!
