Windows 7: Windows Updates for removed software

Windows Updates for removed software

I no longer use Office 2003 (updated to Office 2007) but Windows Updates keeps telling me I have updates for Office 2003. How do I tell Windows Updates to stop this nonsense?

Try running the windows installer cleanup utility and remove any office 2003 entries.

|MG| Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 7.2 Download

Please note this tool is no longer supported by MS.

Another thing you can try, run CCleaner registry cleaner to remove any leftover entries.

If nothing works, you can just right click on the offending update and select "Hide".

Windows Office has been removed. Safe to ignore updates for Office?
Hi, I searched before asking this and it's probably a very simple answer. I have removed Windows Office from my laptop. Now using Open Office. Am I correct in thinking that it is safe to ignore all Windows Updates for any Office application? Plus, is it safe to remove any that were installed...
