Windows 7: Office 2010 update being offered for no reason

Office 2010 update being offered for no reason

7pro x64

I am being offered an update for office 2010 (KB2881030), but 2007 is the only one ever installed. What's up with that? Is there a way I can root out and eliminate whatever is triggering this?

Sometimes a later version update is offered if it will fix a problem, or improve an earlier version as well.

Don't worry about it & just go ahead & install it.
