My version of WP is no longer updatable. I've used it without problems for years. I've made no changes to it. Nothing changed except for today's Windows UPdate. Plenty of folks here having problems: http://pcsupport.about.com/b/2012/05/08/patch-tuesday.htm some with applications destroyed.
Word Perfect will not be affected by Patch Tuesday, because it is an application that is developed by Corel. You may need to see if there is an update via Corel.

The dates start in 2011. Scroll down. They end in May 2012.
Please look at the dates for the posts on that link before posting. That happened last year around October.
What version of Corel do you have?
Posted 08 May 2012 - 09:50 PM
Using WinXP SP3. Yes, I also have MS Office. It has been my understanding that updates make changes to Windows, not just MS Office and that is what causes some people problems. The site referenced is ongoing. Scroll down.
Just my view on this , and then can you please answer cryptodan
If you meant to pick the site that you did link to, the comments are listed as from 2011, not the current updates -
Do I Need These Security Updates?
QUOTE - You need these updates if you're running any currently supported Windows operating system (Windows 7, Vista, XP, etc.) or any version of any Microsoft Office program. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are affected. (Not other Apps)
Some of these updates fix problems so serious that if left unpatched, it's possible that someone could gain access to your computer. These issues are given a Critical severity rating.
Other fixes aren't quite as serious but are security issues that should be corrected nonetheless. These are categorized as Important.
Thank You -

Thank you so much for looking those up. I'm 100% sure I already have the 1st patch; 80% sure I have the second but will download it and try it again. Can't hurt, might jog it.
Verify that you have the latest Service Pack from here: http://apps.corel.com/support/patches/wpox3sp2/index1.html for your product.

Yes, thank you I know how to run the updates manually. That's what I was doing previously. Yes, that was my post. Yes, downloading second Corel Patch. Also, have posted there.
To stop using Microsoft Update
If you no longer want to install updates using this website, you can disable the supporting software on your computer.
You can still get updates from the Windows Update website by visiting the site or by turning on automatic updating on your computer. However, you will not be able to get updates for products other than Windows.
Disable Microsoft Update software and let me use Windows Update only
Do you have this option at the bottom of the Updates page ? ?
