Matt,

Not sure about that freezing and unfreezing, it seems uncharacteristic... But as long as you got a successful update, I guess it's OK.

Just be sure to check your Application folder to see if the Microsoft Office 2008 files got the latest update OK - just right click (ctl-click) on the file and select Get Info - check the top of that box under the App Title to see what the latest Modification date is...

Noel

Open Word or any of the components, go to 'About' and ensure the version reads 12.1.1 as that is the latest. If it shows 12.0 or 12.1 update again.
