    What about MS Office updates?

    Hey all,

    New computer with Windows 7 Home Premium. I do NOT have MS Office installed on this computer, except for Visio 2003.

    Problem? I keep getting notifications for updates to MS Office 2003. Are these because of Visio being installed? If not, why do I get them? Is it safe to ignore them?

    Appreciate whatever help anyone can offer...

    Chuck

    You can actually hide the updates not required. Right click the unneeded update and choose hide. It will not be offered again until you unhide it.

    Yes, you can get Office updates even though Visio is the only product installed. As part of the Visio installation you would also get some common Office components installed. These may be what are being updated. It is generally better to install the updates. If you are really concerned you should investigate each one to find out what is being updated and then make a decision about hiding the update using the method Ted descibed in the prior post.
