    I recommend the first thing you do is install Office 2003 SP3 - see Office 2003 SP3 for more information and download links. After the service pack is installed you should see fewer fixes to install.

    NOTE: you should backup your system before beginning a major update such as a service pack.

    Then I'd recommend you install all the patches. You may wish to install a few at a time from the oldest to the newest.

    What version of Windows are you running?

    thanks Joe, but the problem is they won't download - the notification is there (golden shield) - there are 21 updates but when the updater goes to work nothing eventuates, and when i reopen Windows, there they are still (going on for 3/4 weeks now) - as i mentioned originally, "is there a method of deleting them from the updater?" like, can i edit the thing? or do i just ignore the fact that they're there - running XP,SP 3 installed
    interestingly these have recently been installed - 17th/18th/23rd of June - KBs,2476490, 2536276, 2535512, 2503665, 2544893, 2539581(twice??), 2553971, 2541025, 2530548, 2447568, 982381 - help!

    Have you tried running Windows Update in IE instead of relying on the golden shield?

    Have you tried just installing one or two of the patches?

    thanks for replying Joe - nothing changes - through IE, updates shown to be downloaded, wait! wait! failed ???? - maybe I'll just leave them, forget them and continue as if they don't exist - one at a time? yes, same result - still wondering why there is no way to manually edit them - i know that if installed i can delete them (add/remove) but in this situation there seems to be no answer - yet

    You might want to try Reset Windows Update components.
