Windows 7: Gettings updates for applications I haven't installed

Gettings updates for applications I haven't installed

Hi,

I just installed Office 2013 Standard edition but I keep getting updates for Access, Skype for Business etc. I even get updates for Outlook which I chose not to install during the setup (I only installed Excel, Word and Powerpoint).

Do I need these updates or can I hide these updates?

Hide them.

A few of the office updates I have hidden keep coming back. Any fix for this? A reboot didn't fix it.

Seems like hiding them multiple times works. The updates probably had multiple versions.
