    MS Office 2003 And Updates

    Curious , I have never used Outlook for e-mail etc and basically do not get online at all with MS 2003. Now on Windows Updates there are a number of updates for the MS 2003. Do I need this stuff or can I just disregard.

    If you NEVER use Outlook you can ignore the changes specifically for Outlook. You should apply the changes for the other Office products.

    One more curiosity of mine, Does one download and install all updates or split them up. I had 10 and I split them up. Just wondering if I'm a kook.

    I normally do them all. If you are more comfortable splitting them into groups that is fine too.

    Well a couple times It would download and install and then say all updates were not successful and I would do it over. Of course I am on WiFi in the boonies and maybe that could be glitching my PC

    If I had connection issues I'd probably do the updates in very small batches.

    Exactly, I guess I just wanted to make sure I was not an idiot. My username says it all.
