Re: Office 2007 SP2 requires reboot but doesn't say so before installing?
Actually, I don't have Outlook 2003 installed (which does beg the
question why is it installing the junk mail filter updates). And
since you mentioned it, I just went to add/remove programs and when
I tried to change the Office 2003 installed apps it already had
Outlook unchecked. The rest of my Office applications are 2003. I
purchased and installed Project 2007 separately.
Thanks for cross-posting it to the more correct group.
