Error Found Code 646 Install Microsoft Office Updates

I am running windows vista (32 bit) premium home edition service pack 2 on a dell inspiron 530s pc.
The specific updates that i have been experiencing the problem are:

 Security update for microsoft office 2003 (kb975051)
 
 Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475)
 Security update for microsoft office word 2003 (kb973443)

 Update for microsoft office 2003 (kb978551)
 
 Update for microsoft office outlook 2003 junk email filter (kb977840)

I have not had my computer in "safe mode" during installs. I have tried temporarily disabling my firewall, then i tried with all protection temporarily off. I really do not understand the reasoning for me to need the updates for microsoft office 2003 and related features. I do not have it installed in my computer, nor do i use any outlook products. I assume it may be to cover items that one may receive via email perhaps as an attachment.

Office Updates Error Code 646

Error code 646 when doing latest windows update for vista to fix a security prob with office 2003 and to fix junk mail filter. Other troubleshooting did not work and i never get prompted to accept the terms. Have tried several times. Sometimes my computer speaks to me in chinese because i often use in china, but not sure if this has anything to do with it. Have been experiencing lots of probs with outlook lately and very slow responses with other programs so may an intruder is already inside.

Error Code 646 - Problem Installing Security Update For Microsoft Office

Problems installing security updates for microsoft office system and all related programs within the microsoft office system (error code 646). I have a laptop that runs windows 7 for x64 bit. Every time i try to install a security update for the microsoft office 2007 system or any of the programs therein, i get the error code 646.

Everything else seems to successfully update. This is truly aggravating because when i go to shut down my computer, i have to wait until the updates are installed before it shuts down, but then when i turn it back on and shut it off again, it still says i have to install the same updates from when i last shut down and therefore have to wait again until they are installed.

It's a never ending cycle. What the heck is wrong with microsoft office that makes it to where everyone seems to be having the same issues? Don't you think this problem needs to be corrected instead of just suggesting to download manually? Downloading manually takes too much time and honestly makes no sense. What's the point of having windows update if everyone seems to have to do the microsoft office updates manually?

Error 646 Office Security Updates Fail To Install

Running vista home premium, sp2, 64bit, w/norton internet security 2010

Ran windows update this morning (6/9/10) to install fifteen (15) updates, and six (6) failed to install.

Windows update successfully installed : kb980218, kb890830, kb982381, kb979482, kb980195, kb905866, kb979559, kb982536, and kb979910.

Windows update has repeatedly failed to install: kb979441, kb982158, kb982135, kb982312, kb982331, kb982308, all associated with ms office.

Had a similar problem on 5/12/10 with another ms office security update, kb976321. In that case, finally went to ms download site and installed the update manually. Would rather not go through that again.

Updates Error Code 646

I have tried all the advice that i have read on the other forums and it has not worked. The updates for my computer are as follows: kb969559, kb957789, kb973709, kb969613, kb951944, kb951550, and the microsoft office suite service pak2 2007 and one more update that i didn't catch. I have an emachines computer that is only about 2or3 years old and i am really getting frustrated with these downloads not installing.

I even tried disabling my norton firewall to install the updates and that didn't work. Is there any help out there for this error code? Please help someone. The program that is running on my computer is windows vista and this is a windows update that will not install and for some odd reason i really don't need or use these particular features or programs on my computer.

Error Code 646 Message When Install Office Service Pack 2

Since i mostly use my laptop computer at home, is it necessary for me to have the 2007 microsoft office service pack installed on my laptop? If i need to have this update installed, how in the world can i do so without constantly encountering this error code 646? I currently have the windows vista home premium edition. Over the past several weeks, i have made over twenty attempts to install this office service pack and every single attempt has failed. Can someone please give me some help in having this particular windows update installed in a more simplified way than what is being offered?  I'm beginning to find this whole situation not only frustrating, but also rather boring.

Error Code 80070663 Office Updates

I've been having a problem installing these updates for quite a while now, but i am really eager to have them installed because my laptop is being very slow and keeps "not responding" all the time, which i think is a result of not having these updates. I have tried multiple times to install them but they always fail and this error code shows. 80070663. I have tried turning the uac off, opening all my microsoft programmes and turning off the internet. Not quite sure what to do next? I'll try any solution at this point.

Install Updates Code 646

I have been trying to install two updates for over a week now and so far no luck. The updates are kb978380 for office 2007 and kb978382 for excel 2007. Everytime i try to download them it creates a restore point and then acts as it should but then i get a error code 646 and i am told that it was not able to install the updates. Today i found a optional update listed and tried to install all three but it would only install the optional and code 646 for the other two. I am not any kind of an expert but will try to follow instructions because this needs to be fixed.

Error Code 80070643 Can't Install Office Updates

I'm running win7 pro with office 2010 - brand new toshiba, so no old stuff to get in the way. I've tried everything to get the power point update kb982158 to load but keep getting error code 80070643. Well, hopefully i haven't tried everything!

What doesn't work is: trying to manually install; unloading and reloading ppt and trying to update; tried the "fix-it" kb suggested for a similar problem (different error message 0x80070646); tried checking the registry keys according http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/18449f60-c149-4eaf-b8e6-a2880cd7232b

The first two keys are as they are supposed to be, but under local_machine etc. There is no appdata, there is a commonappdata whose value is %programdata%

Should i change the value to %userprofile%appdataroaming ?

Or am i way off base, is there another solution?

Stopping Microsoft Office Updates Offer

Os: windows 7 home premium 64-bit my computer came preloaded with a trial of microsoft office home and student 2007. I have since uninstalled it. Even though it is no longer installed on my machine, windows update continues to pester me with office updates i do not want or need. I have all updates installed, even a handful of earlier office updates from when i did have the software installed. Since i no longer have office, i have no use for any more updates to it. Therefore i would like to know how to stop this incessant nagging to update office. I would appreciate a real helpful response and not just an irrelevant copy-paste auto-response.
