Fresh install of Win 7 to SSD drive. Changes all users "My Documents" locations to local hard drive. Booted up in safe mode and changed the default "Public Documents" locations to local hard drive. This was done for all folders. Pictures, Videos, Music, and Documents.

Copied all old backed up files to their correct locations.

this change has worked fine for Windows Explorer. Microsoft Office finds the "My Documents" but still thinks the Public Documents are located in C:\Users\Public. I can get around this manually but would the defaults to function correctly for my family.

Any way to Office to update itself? should I uninstall and re-install it? Ideas?
