    MS Office 2007 - Updater wants to reinstall SP3

    Why is Win Update thinking that I DO NOT have MS Office 2007 SP3 installed???? As can be seen in the attached screenshot, SP3 has definitely been installed.

    The only weirdness I can see is that the copy of MS Office 2007 SP3 that I download and installed a couple of weeks ago was 360MB while this version that they want me to download and install is only 260MB.

    My experience in similar circumstances was to let Windows Update do its thing and the problem will end when you allow it.

    I could do that but then which version of the SP3 update do I save as the real one? the 360MB version or the 260MB variation?

    Let Windows Update do the download and install. If it is choosing the smaller one, so be it.

    The larger version is the complete version which contains SP-3 for all the Office 2007 desktop components. Windows Update does software detection and offers you a specialized download that matches your system.
