I utilize MS Office 2003 on my computer and because security updates for 2003 will be lost in the near future, I upgraded to 2007. After several attempts to use this program, I got so frustrated that I deleted 2007 and reinstalled the 2003 version. Now I still receive updates for the 2007 edition, but it has been uninstalled. Is there a way for me to stop the 2007 updates ?

Open the following file in Notepad: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\HOSTS
Add the line: office.microsoft.com

Save the file and reboot. That should kill it dead.
Or try this -
If you uninstalled Office 2007 via Programs and Features, then try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to remove any installation information that may have been left behind after the uninstall...

Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

I found that I had deleted all but Access 2007 Database. I got rid of that with Revo Uninstaller, so we will see what happens during the next update cycle.

Thanks for your reply...........
