    I have Windows 98, AOL, with a Dial up Modem. When I go on line and try to
    do an Office update, I get a message that tells me to close AOL before
    downloading Office updates. Since I am using a dial up modem with AOL, and
    if I close it, I will not have a internet connection. What is the purpose
    of closing my dial up modem with AOL?. Why is it required?

    Thanks
    Douglas

    Might be ActiveX is required, try downloading the Network installation
    updates; this way you can download the update then install it at your
    leisure.

    You could also try minimizing your AOL browser and open IE to do your
    business.

    You might consider getting a real ISP.

    Pennywise is correct that the automatic update feature uses ActiveX.

    After you get connected to AOL, launch Internet Explorer, then go to the
    Office Update site and see if it works for you.
