    Exclamation Office 2010 has installed it'self on my workstation and I don't know how?

    Office 2010 has installed it'self on my workstation and I don't know how?

    I'm not kidding, This is my personal workstation running 64bit vista. I'm never logged off it, it's never turned off. whenever I leave the office I lock the workstation(my own enforced protocol). I've recently downloaded office and installed it on a new windows 7 PC in the lab but that is all. (installed with diff credentials as well)

    I have had no intension of installing it on my workstation until I'd created a new published install much later that all my users would use.

    The workstation was still locked as me this morning the vms I run on it were still running and the webpages I was using yesterday. The office disk was not in the drive nor is it yet in my distribution point.

    3 days ago I did install the MDT2010 but haven't used it yet.

    office 2003 is also still installed on this workstation (I never used 2007).

    I have installed the trial at home using the appv stuff and this isn't that. (home and work are totally isolated)

    Can anyone think of a way it's installed it's self?

    It was installed on the 7th? about the time I burned it to disc.

    it was installed on the 7th but I didn't notice for a week?!?... I have disabled autorun on all machines but I have looked at the installed and you only need to hit the upgrade button and it's fully automated. It requires no further decisions or a key. I can only summise that I accidently installed office 2010...

    I did look at the rsop no software installs for me. my workstation in in a special OU and there are no published installs that include office 2010.

    The install is so easy I did it by accident?....Really?
