I have a Vista SP2 laptop that came with the demo version of Office 2007, which I eventually uninstalled. I naively did this at a time when Windows Update had available updates for Office 2007 in its list. Now Windows Update can't let go of those updates. I understand that I did something I should not have done.
If I let it try to install the updates, the whole install fails for everything.
The alternative is to go down the list and uncheck each of the unwanted updates, which I can do, but I'd rather not have to do that every single time I do updates.
Is there a solution to this, or have I screwed myself incurably? Linux is not an option, I use the machine for Windows development.
