      Solved.  I tried to install another old program, quicken, and that run into the same problem. It asked permission to install files needed and then proceeded to install successfully.  I then went back to Synctoy which then also installed okay.  I am now a happy chappie and have two sync programs as I was trying freefilesync (good) as an option.  Thanks to everyone for your input.

      hi Jim  Tried your suggestion but still only get as far as before ie requires .net framework do you want to get it from the web.  When I looked at this download link  I was at a loss how to proceed (see shot).  As far as I was aware .net was already installed on my pc as I get .net monthly patches.  Is this download something else?

      Had a quick look at FreeFileSync, downloaded the donation version, and although early days I give it the thumb up.  Should suit my needs perfectly.  Thanks for all the helpful replies to my post.

      Shall have a look.  I did try the Allwaysync but it had a problem finding some folders although they were definitely in the selected path. Shall persevere and thanks to all replies. Much appreciated. Cheers

      I am obviously doing something wrong.  Trying to come to grips with new to me win8 with only an onscreen keyboard (no win key).  I thought as I am the only user and signed in I would automatically have been administrator.  Installed office 2010 no problem. Is there a way round this?

      I have net framework 4 but when I try to install synctoy the setup error requires net 2.0.5  Do not understand why it won’t install. Reluctant to download 2.0.5 and install incase it clashes with later installed versions of .net

      Thanks Susan for your new idea which I like.  Can see at a glance without scrolling about, especially on a mobile for oldies like me. August office patches easier to find. On your latest patches I am unable to find in  pre windows 10, Windows 7 rollups etc but all I see is windows 2008 SP2 am I missing  something?  Cheers

      Oops my mistake.  The two patches are kb4512506 & kb4512486 that I should have said.

      Yes I normally install all rollups and other patches as advised on woodys.

      Hope this helps someone to give me an answer about what the notes “Pick one or the other to install”

      Yes, I understand but Susan has given the install with the above notes and I shall still hold off until defcon changes.  I still need clarification about what is meant in the notes.

      There is a check box for “give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates”. Nothing about Microsoft products.  However when I checked give me recommended updates……. the .NET KB4459922 is now showing as important and its box checked along with about 25 other windows updates going back about 2 years (should I just hide these?).

      Hi

      Windows 7 Home x64  Office 2010

      At last managed to install checked KB4462923 but have not been offered Office 2010 updates through WU even though my settings are at notify me but let me choose when to download, even when I check for updates nothing offered.  Why is this?

      I also notice the .NET KB4459922 is now optional and unchecked.  Should this be checked and installed now?    To add to the confusion there is also a preview .NET KB4462500 optional unchecked which I don’t plan to install based on previous advice.

      Found the 5 office 2010 updated in MS download centre, downloaded individually and installed.  No problems.  Is there a way I can get them offered with my monthly rollup updates?      Any help appreciated.

      Thanks

      Thanks PKCano but I am not computer savvy enough to go through them all and make decisions to install or hide.  These were previously all under optional and now under important since I checked the box to “give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates”!  As pc is working fine shall not tempt fate and just install the most recent updates.  Microsoft OS updates are a real pain and time waster.
