Open the following file in Notepad: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

Add the line:

127.0.0.1 office.microsoft.com

Save the file and reboot. That'll kill it dead.

But why would you want to?

You can also add the following but I think it will disable all updates from Microsoft.

127.0.0.1 update.microsoft.com
