Please help!!
I've installed Open Office 4.1.5 and since then, I can't check for Windows 10 updates. Is there some work-around for this? TIA :D

That shouldn't happen. Ever. Did you get it from the real source or from another website that offers a version loaded with malware? Only download from the link at the bottom of this page, and don't click on any links on the sourceforge.net page.

Please could you post the link to the real download. Might be useful to others :-)

The link is http://www.openoffice.org/download/ also at the bottom right of this page as mentioned previously.

Just a thought... Could the genuine version be digitally signed? That would be a big help to differentiate between the real and fake download!

Try Windows Update Troubleshooter. It can help.
