Re: Office updates fail
I just tried to install the new Outlook spam filter update after installing
the entire update. Two updates would not go. Errors ;Thr following updates
were not installed:
update for outlook 2003(KB943649) and
update for Outlook Junk Email Filter 2003(LB943591)
I have tried numerous times to have it install and each time I restart as
required the shield icon telling me I have an update comes up and I can't
make it go away nor can I get the updates.
