Windows 7: What control is available in selecting MS Updates?

15 Sep 2011   #1

What control is available in selecting MS Updates?

As you can see OS is Win 7 Pro.
Recently I added MS Office 97 because I had it available on disk and needed Word & Power Pt. I had been using Open Office but there are limitations there so had to go back to Word.
unfortunately to get Word and P/Pt one must install Office. I don't use any other Office Program and if possible would remove them.

What I would like to achieve however is some sense in Updates.
With Office 97 I now have 31 Important Updates all relating to Office. I don't need them ... my security is fine and I only use the 2 programs.

Yes, I could turn off updates but that would prevent me gaining access to Win 7 updates which I don't want to do.

So the Question is this: Is there a way to isolate Office Updates so I don't have to untick 30 + boxed jsut to get at one update which is wanted?
