One of my computers has not been receiving the auto updates from Microsoft correctly. I have XP and Office 2003 professional on the machine. When I try to manually update from the website, either the Microsoft site or the office site, their system incorrectly believes I am using Office 2007 rather than Office 2003.

I did use the the trial version of Office 2007, however, I uninstalled it when I could not justify the cost of purchasing it. I reinstalled office 2003, and since then I get only the updates for office 2007 rather than office 2003, and not all of the xp updates that are received on my other xp computers.

How can I fix this?

As always, thanks for any help or guidance.
