Windows – Why does Windows update show updates for Office products that have been deleted

microsoft-office-2007windows 7windows update

My Windows 7 system came with "trial" versions of Office (2007) installed. I removed them (with add/remove programs). However, whenever I run Windows Update it still shows updates needed for those Office products. Why? What do I do to stop this?

My guess is, you need to get MS Office (any version), and install it. [I'm assuming you're using OpenOffice. Or something else? If you're already using MSOffice, which version of MSOffice?]

You can ignore the errors by "hiding the updates".

You can do this by right-clicking the update, and then clicking "Hide Update".
