2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 1 (SP1)
I am confused: Why is Automatic Updates suggesting I install a service pack
for a suite of software I do not have installed, and have never installed?
Office is not a part of Windows, so why would you distribute updates to it
through the updater for Windows, and not through an independant updater for
Office?

Re: 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 1 (SP1)
If the system is opted into Microsoft Update and ANY bits of Office are
detected on the system than updates for Office will be offered.
Strongly suggest you have the system scanned at the Office Update page
to determine if anything is really in need of updating:

[IE only}
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/do...incatalog.aspx

If you do not want updates offered for Office, then suggest you opt out
of Microsoft Update and revert back to Windows Update.
If the OS is Vista:
