Windows update installing security patches for programs not on the machine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a dell machine with Win XP Pro sp3 on it.  On Windows Update it keeps giving me

    security patches for MOicrosoft Office 2007.  The problem is my version of MS Ofice is 2002

    (10.6866.6870) sp3.  When I downloaded and attempted to install the SP@ for MS Office 07 it

    recognized that there were no products for that service pack to update.  Yet the auto updates

    provided to me by Windows Update for my XP machine installed the security patches this

    morning for Office 2007.  What is going on here?  Why were they selected as "express" updates

    first of all, and why then installed for a version of Office not on my machine?
