I have seen notes assoc. with update which seem to imply that svc pk3 applies to ms ofc functions. Since I do not use ms office products I wonder if I should use this update. Also, if I did download the update, would it overwrite previous versions and rewrite registry accordingly?

I don't know what you've read, but MS Office has nothing to do with OS service packs. You should ALWAYS be running the most current Service Pack for your Operating System.

The current service pack for the Windows Vista operating system is Service Pack 2.

Microsoft Office versions 2003 and 2007 both have Service Pack 3 updates. If you are offered Office Service Pack 3 via Vista Windows update, you probably have one of those office editions on your computer. It may be a trial version that was never activated. Since service packs are bug fixes, security updates, and general improvements, it is usually a good idea to install them if the software is on your computer, even if you don't use the program. Second option would be to uninstall office.

Regards,
Brooks

Thanks for posting that - it's been a long day and my attention span has apparently been suffering :)
