    Office 2000 XP sp2

    Is there any way I can identify what the latest update is that Microsoft says is available for my computer? The last time I clicked on the download tab I discovered it was for SP3 which seems to have caused problems for many people & even Woody suggests caution regarding welcoming it into ones computer. Regards.

    If you choose the Custom install, you can view the intended install items. If there is one you don't want, un-check it.

    And will be given the option after clicking OK or Install to not be reminded about that update again. If this is for SP3 only, I'd select that option to prevent downloading and/or installing it inadvertently.

    You can also go to http://update.microsoft.com to see which updates are available.

    Remember that if you are using Microsoft Update (different from Windows Update) you are getting notices for ALL Microsoft products.

    There is a SP3 for Office 2002, which may or may not be what is being found.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Microsoft Update only suggests updates for installed versions of Windows and Office, so since SF has Office 2000 it won't suggest Office 2002 SP3.

    Re: Office 2000 XP sp2

    Hi all....reading through the various posts again I notice that Mike mentioned "Custom Install" but just having looked at the "Automatic update" in the control panel I can't see that option is that because I am using Office 2000. Thanks again.

    You have set Windows to notify you of updates. You should get a "Custom" option in the notification to download and/or the install prompt.

    Office 2000 has nothing to do with the Automatic Update settings. The Custom Install option is the second one in the picture you attached in your first post.

    No problem. Nothing to apologize for. We've all been there. You only learn by asking and doing. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
