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.

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 2003 Issue - Microsoft Office End User License Agreement

Windows 7 pro, get "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " From office 2003 programs. I purchased a new hp computer with windows 7 pro, then loaded all of the software i'd been using on my old xp system. Every time i start any office 2003 app, i get a dialog box labeled "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " I must click on "accept" before continuing. I use an old vista solution of 'running as admin' and now i receive a box asking if it is alright to modify this program(registry i think). How can i stop this box from appearing?

Cannot Get Updates For Office 2003

After hours of talking on the phone i turn to these forums for help. I have windows 7 x64 professional with all the current updates. I also have ms office 2003. While i'm able to receive and update the os, i get no prompt or suggested updates for office 2003. Starting office 2003 and then clicking on "help/check for updates" does nothing. Interesting going to "control panel/system and security/windows update" and then clicking "get updates for other microsoft products. Find out more" also does nothing. My question: i exclusively use firefox and i'm wondering if ie is required to enable these functions? Currently i have ie disabled and not installed.

Office Updates Are Failing

I am running windows 7 32 bit and last night i downloaded microsoft office 2010 and installed it (upgrading my 2007 edition in the process). By the time i wanted to shut the computer off it reported that 6 updates had been downloaded and needed to be installed. I did not read what they were, i assume i can some hownyway, i let it shut down and it performed the updates and switched off. Then i rebooted the computer and it came up with the second update screen which shows percentage complete.

At this point i have to wait for what feels like 5 minutes (with it staying on 0%) and eventually it says the update had failed and it was reverting the changes. No error numbers are displayed. After logging on i tried the shutdown again and it followed the same process. I have not tried this morning yet. How can i get around this issue?Thank you for your help. I have been most pleased with windows 7 and up until last night i have not had window update issues. Ndrew

Problem With Microsoft Updates Not Installing

I have a new hp dv6 laptop with windows 7. I also have norton 360 protection on this machine as well as the microsoft office 2010 beta on this computer. Since beginning to use the new system, i receive regular notices from windows auto update for updates available for download; which i regularly allow. The day after i installed the office 2010 - beta i received the following two update notices:

1. Update for microsoft office 2010 file validation - beta (kb976133), 32 bit extension
2. Security update for microsoft works 9 (kb967044)

The problem that i'm having is that when i try to install these updates i receive the following error message for both downloads after they don't install:

Code 646 windows update encountered an unknown error.

None of the available online fixes or troubleshooting seem to work, and windows auto update continues to find and notify me of these 2 updates. The same problem occurs every time i try to install the downloads.

Tonight i received 2 other update notices along with the 2 that won't install; at the moment all other updates seem to install just fine. Since (at least) one of these problem updates appears to be a security update, is my system encountering a problem installing them because of the norton 360 software? Any help you can give me in getting these updates to install or quit appearing through windows auto update?

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 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.

Office Security Updates Continually Fail

T3 ms windows & office security updates continually fail as well as those from acrobat & apple quicktime. These updates (kb978380, kb978382 & kb979895) have repeatedly failed to install after being automatically downloaded. I've also manually downloaded these updates from the ms site, saved to the computer, and tried to install to no avail. Do i need to disable both the windows and mcafee firewalls? Please note that downloaded updates from acrobat for adobe reader and apple quicktime have also failed to install.

Coincidentally, i just discovered whild in the admin account that word now fails to save my docs - wonder if i should restore to an earlier point? Why does this continue to happen (as it has in the past)? I don't have a lot of computer savvy but after reading comments from others i am highly frustrated and bewildered with ms vista.

Black Screen After Microsoft Win 7 Updates

After installing automatic updates on 4/16/10, windows 7 will no longer load. After the manufacturer splash screen (dell), the screen goes black with cursor in upper left. Cannot boot in safe mode. Used recovery disks to restore to point right before updates, but problem still exists. I am now restoring to factory settings. Most posts on this problem point to video drivers, but since i can't get a safe mode option, i don't think a video driver is the issue. After i restore, i am worried that applying updates will re-create the problem. Does anyone know exactly what causes this? I hate to turn off automatic updates, but don't know what else to do.

Unable To Install Security Updates For Office 2003

I have been receiving continual unable to install error messages for windows update for security updates for my ms office 2003 components beginning 04/17/2010. On 04/15/2010, an update for 2007 ms office system was auto-installed - kb981715 - as were 9 other updates. After that, all office 2003 security updates have failed. Should i uninstall the 2007 ms office system update & reattempt to install the office 2003 updates? 

Failing to have updated security for my office components is quite concerning. Update provides links for the 646 error code, but the "fix" doesn't help. Since 06/08/2010, microsoft .net framework 1. 1 sp1 security update for windows vista and windows server 2008 (kb979906) has also failed to install - error code 643. Same deal - troubleshooting process fails. How can these be problems be corrected?

Technical Support Advised Not To Download Microsoft Updates

I am getting ready to do a complete reinstallation of the vista operating system for my hp pavillion. Hp technical support has advised me not to download any of the microsoft updates and service packs because it may interfere with the settings established by hp at the time of reinstallation. I have always downloaded such updates from microsoft. This is the first time i have been given advice on this kind. Does this make sense?

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.

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?

Office Home & Student 2007 Automatic Updates Are Not Working

I am at a loss as to what to do. I recently downloaded microsoft office home & student 2007 which seems to be fine. The problem is, the automatic updates are not working. After searching online, i did the start>run>winver and it says i have service pack 3. Then i went to control panel under add/remove programs and although it is listed, there is no indication that it is actually installed.

I can remember a year or so ago having issues with sp3 when i tried to upgraded to ie8 so "i think" i removed it. Probably shouldn't have done that!  But ie8 worked fine once i removed it.microsoft says we will no longer receive automatic updates to sp2 in june so we need to upgrade to sp3. Well, i just don't know what i have on my computer at this point!

Anyway, now i get these failure messages on the updates for the office:

The 2007 microsoft office suite service pack 2 (sp2)

Update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb967642)

Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb951944)

Security update for microsoft office 2007 (kb951550)

So i thought i would go in and download sp2. But i wasn't sure if microsoft .net framework 2. 0 service pack 2 actually meant i have sp2 installed or not. And i got myself in such a pickle last year i don't want to take any chances again. I'm sorry this is such a long message. I tried to do print screens to attach more info but that didn't work. Let me know what else you may need.

I have found additional information. Looking into my update history for the automatic updates, all 4 of these failed updates have the same error code which is: 0x80070663. I don't know if that info helps to solve this problem or not but there it is.
