Telling Update to ignore updates?
I have Office 2007 Standard installed along with Publisher 2003.
Is there any way I can tell Windows Updates to ignore ALL updates from
Office 2003 except Publisher? I keep getting notified of updates for Excel,
Word and Outlook 2003 when I don't have them!

Have the Viewers for those?

Sure the updates are not just for Office 2003 products in general - so that
they update shared files all Office 2003 products share?

Can you name a specific update or two by KB######?

Nope! Why would I when I have Office 2007 Standard? ;-)

The general updates for Office 2003 I install.

951548 (Excel 2003)
955466 (Excel 2003)
945432 (Outlook 2003)
948988 (PowerPoint 2003)

I did install Publisher from a Custom Install of Office 2003, and there is a
2003 MSOCache folder if that helps

Other than "flipping" from Microsoft Update back to Windows Update as your
default update source and patching Published manually, no.

[I've had Office 2003 installed since, well, late 2003. I've NEVER
installed Outlook yet I keep being offered OL updates.]

OK thanks. It's more of a nuisance than a PITA!
