Important update offered for wrong Office program

Q: Important update offered for wrong Office program

I was notified today of one important update, KB2881030, but checking shows this to be for the 32 bit version of Office 2010. I have only MS Office Home and Student 2007 on my 64bit computer. Further, the update has a prerequisite mentioned, i.e., Microsoft Office 2010, Service Pack 2, definitely not on my computer. Finally, the update's "more information" did not mention any files in Office 2007 that were involved. I won't install this update unless I learn I need it, but I'm wondering if there are others being offered this apparently inappropriate update. Anyone else involved?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Important update offered for wrong Office program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am being offered an update for office 2010 (KB2881030), but 2007 is the only one ever installed. What's up with that? Is there a way I can root out and eliminate whatever is triggering this?

Sometimes a later version update is offered if it will fix a problem, or improve an earlier version as well.

Don't worry about it & just go ahead & install it.

Would it hurt not to install an important update if the program is not used?

I do not use anything "Live", but have it installed.

I don't use Skype. I uninstalled it. Windows Update keeps sending updates and marking them as 'important.' If I run the update I find I need to uninstall the program again.

I'd like reassurance that I can safely ignore these updates.

It makes sense to me, but software has gotten complex enough that I want to be sure that this update only updates Skype for Windows and that failure to implement it does not leave a gaping hole in Windows 7.

thanks

If you change windows update settings as shown below then in theory you will not be offered skype. If you prevoiusly had skype installed and are still offered updates then I guess that skype wasn't fully removed.

Hi,

I am on a new PC running Windows 7, having used Vista previously. On Vista, I had a spreadsheet with hyperlinks to several images stored on my HDD. They opened in Photo Gallery when clicked.

Now, on 7, they always open in MSIE8, even though default program for pictures is set to Live Photo Gallery. This happens in both Office Professional XP and Office 2010 Professional beta.

Is there any way to make them open in photo gallery?

Thanks

A:Office hyperlinks open in wrong program

I phoned Microsoft they told me that all hyperlinks will only open in IE. I want my hyperlinks to jpeg files to open in Windows photo viewer not IE . If anyone can solve, this much appreciated??? BTW The default program to open the jpeg file is already set to open with windows photo viewer. I tried disabling IE8 and then the excel hyperlink ceases to work at all. Why microsoft does not give any flexiblilty about hyperlink file opening programs is beyond me, as they are all microsoft products anyway. The only thing I can think of is that it is microsoft insisting that you keep IE enabled on your windows 7 operating system. Give us break Microsoft, you are making more and more people go to Apple/Mac!!!!! Can someone help me with a not too complex fix, i.e no major surgery on the registry, minor day surgery ok.Thanks.

I'm having a frustrating problem that I'm guessing is going to be easily solved.
I have a user who opens word and excel files directly from a website and has a requirement to fill some details in and then send them via outlook 2007 to recipients.

Up until about a week ago this was no problem... within Word 2007, simply click on the send to mail recipient button and outlook opened and off it went.

After seemingly nothing has changed, Word now wants to open outlook express instead of Outlook 2007. (The default mail program is still Outlook 2007).

Does anyone know the cause of this.

Thanks
Ian.

I had updated my version of Office XP Pro on Windows using the MS Office Update site at Microsoft successfully and installed SP and KB updates All the about screens of Word Excel etc show version SP but cannot find any record of the KB updates The update engine version was downloaded and was used successfully to download and XP is Office Update MS Wrong List install SP and KB patches previously I have reviewed the article that goes with KB and I can verify MS Office XP Update List is Wrong manually that this patch is installed from the version numbers of the files MS Office XP Update List is Wrong installed I MS Office XP Update List is Wrong have performed an Office repair and nothing changed Today I go to MS Office Update to check to see if there are any further updates and it claims that SP and KB need to be installed one after the other OK perhaps my SP update needs updating I downloaded the SP update with no problems but the installation fails without giving any indication why I verified the quot already installed updates quot from the Office XP Update site and it seems to agree that the above mentioned updates haven t been installed However several updates have been installed and are listed I then proceeded to download the SP patch itself from Microsoft and install that and it tells me quot The update has already been applied or is included in an update that has already been applied quot - quite right it is too I cleared the TIF cookies and other Internet Explorer junk and rescanned with no difference -------------- Questions How do I ensure that the MS Office Update site shows what I believe is the correct configuration of my Office XP products How do I determine from my PC what Office XP updates are really installed I have found this Office Update Inventory Tool http www microsoft com office ork offutoolv htm which lists which updates you have on your machine I have tried this and it shows only Office SP installed but not SP nor KB So where are the office update tools getting their information from and how do I correct that without a complete uninstall and reinstall nbsp

A:MS Office XP Update List is Wrong

Further information...

I am trying to coerce Office Update to show what is really installed so that in future I don't have to download individual updates that the Office Update won't let me install since it claims I need SP3 first.

The Office XP product and associated files on my PC definitely show that all the patches including SP3 and KB833858 are installed.

I'm veering towards an uninstall and reinstall, hopefully product activation (or more precisely re-activation) would be smooth, but I'm holding off to see if there is a fix.

Recalling the events to determine what may have caused this after I had suscessfully updated and patched. I can only think that enabling Office XP on the other accounts on this same machine reset the information that the non-Office tools use to determine what is installed.

I have a Mail server running Microsoft Exchange 5.5 on a NT 4 machine.

I created a distribution list say, listA. I added some accounts in the listA distribution list.

Someone reported that he sent an email message to the listA distribution list but the email was received by someone else who does not belong in the distribution list (listA). Do you have any idea what might happened. The NT 4 machine is a Pentium Pro acting also as a primary domain controller + webserver IIS 3 (!)

Thanks in advance!

Make sure that Distribution List B has not been put in Distribution List A, by mistake.

If that has happened, then everyone in Dist List B is also on Dist List A.

Also, have a look at the original e-mail on the sender's side (lokk in his sent items folder). Make sure that it was sent purely to the one list, and that this user is not perhaps the name just above or below the name of the Dist List... and may have been added by a slip of the mouse...
As you may have guessed, I am thinking this was a user glitch, not an Exchange fault. I think this is a case of the Computer doing exactly what you TOLD it to do, not what you WANT it to do....... know what I mean?

Hello all

When executing Windows Update, I experienced that one important update is not automatically selected to download and install.


I like to understand why this is?

Also I like to understand if I should always install all important updates, even the ones not by default selected?

In this example, the not selected update refers to MS09-054 security update. Is this a manual installed security update?
Does it not apply to me?

Thanks a lot in advance!

A:Windows Update, important update not selected

Not all users experience the issue that this update resolves. MS is providing you the oportunity to use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" logic.

I applied the update even though I have no evidence that I need it. Yet.

Some updates will adversely affect some users. Not applying updates may adversely affect you.

What can you do? My advice - apply all updates. Unless you have a good reason not to.

I know you can have a program when opened turn the screen to 256 colors but how do you get a program to open 16 bit? I have it on 24 bit and i like it that way but to play the game you need 16. so i have to change it and then change it back
 

A:This is not real important but how do you get only 1 program to open in 16 bit color

I am not certain that this is possible with 2000 or XP without some sort of third party program such as resplendent resolver, which actually doesn't change the resolution, it just tricks the program into thinking it has 16 bit color.

There are some fast display switchers that come with some manufacturers display cards. There is also a free third party mode switcher called Multires from http://www.entechtaiwan.com/

They say it is XP compatable, but I have seen one instance where it did not work well.

I have Secunia on my Acer Windows 8 laptop. According to latest scan today it's telling me I need an update for Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.x That I don't understand since I've updated the laptop every time updates have been offered unless Microsoft failed to send it. (However, I haven't undated to Windows 8.1 yet -- I always hang back on that kind of major update to see what happens with everybody else.) I might be savy about a heck of a lot of things to do with computers but I don't know anything about that particular program. I started to read some stuff on it on the net, however, there's so much disagreement on it I gave up trying to figure out what to do. I hope I can get some good advice on that issue here. HELP!

A:Might Be Missing An Update That Could Be Important

Microsoft only publishes new updates for Windows on Tuesdays at 3am but unless if you don't install those updates those updates will be offered to you later if you choose to do so manually. Windows by default installs security important updates by automatically. To see if that update was installed go to the control panel select "Windows Update" then select "View Update History" Windows is great at managing updates on it's own you can also select not to automatically install Windows updates, and choose which ones to update and install. There is no need for 3rd party software to do this for you.

Hello,
I'am downloading very important files but I'm afraid that my computer might switch off because windows update gave me a notice that the computer will switch off after an update and the maximum amount of time you can postpone the computer to switch off is 4 hours (That's what I done). I will not be able to use the computer for more than 4 hours.
So this is what I did>> I think I turned windows update off by choosing the option of 'Never check for update (not recommended).

Now the question is> Will my computer switch off within 4 hours after I leave it?
If it will, then how can I make it not switch off.

PLEASE NOTE: The download is NOT resumable.
EDIT: I'm using Windows 7.

Thank you for reading.

A:[IMPORTANT] Windows Update

In my experience if you are still using the computer at the end of that 4 hours it will give you another warning and you will be able to postpone it again for another 4 hours. Then repeat process until the download is done. I am not sure if turning updates off will have stopped the countdown.

and the windows 8.1 updater found an important update
western digital techologies-other hardware-wd ses device

but i haven't western digital hard drivers ..it'a laptop with a ssd installed

did you notice such upate?


thanks

A:wd ses device in the important update

I didn't get one. Did you install the SSD or did it come with your PC? If you installed it, it could be that the drivers from your old(possibly a WD?) and any registry keys are picked up by Windows update. I've noticed with Ccleaner, it shows a program that is already uninstalled sometimes in Cleaner Applications tab. I then have to go into the registry and do a recursive search for left over keys so it will stop showing up.
Or are you using an USB HDD?

Hi everyone, I have been having problems installing the kb976932 update for weeks now. I feel like I tried everything. Im about ready to take a sledge hammer to this thing!

My main question, is this really that important?

I am mainly trying to install a printer to my computer which is unsuccessful and one of the troubleshooting suggestion by the printer manufacturer is to make sure the Windows updates are installed. Idk if this could be the problem or not.

A:Is the kb976932 update really that important?

This is Service Pack 1, so it very well could be the answer. I'm not saying that it is because I can't know.

Here's an official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1:

Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Source: Information about Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

The official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1 has a link to download Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center:

Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center

You'll see a big list of files to download. Here's some text that explains what each one is for:

Hey

Sorry if this sounds like a really amateur question, but on some websites I see links to update your drivers via a download, and since you're not installing any new hardware, what's the significance of downloading something onto one of your drivers? How does your computer run better after updating? When do you know to replace the driver you have with a new one?

At present System Update is offering my P50 the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver 14.8.4.1046 as an optional update.Luckily I see the README says "*2: Caution: This package should not be installed if your system has PCIe SSD.  Please use MS inbox driver instead."  Because I have 2 x PCIe x SSD, so I did not install it.   And what's a "MS inbox driver" anyway?So 2 questions:a) Would I really have caused a problem?  (My version of the driver is 14.6.5.1036)b) Has Lenovo made a mistake offering this optional update? 

A:Bad System Update option offered for P50 ?

The MS inbox driver refers basically to the default driver windows installs from the driver packages it has access to.  As for the update, I was curious about this so installed it on one of my P50 machines that has 2x 512gb NVMe M.2 SSDs, and 1x 2.5" mechanical SATA drive.  The update did not cause any issues for me, but YMMV.

I'm unable to install an update to windows installer 3.1. I've tried many times and it always fails. But I also read the fine print about that update and it doesn't sound as if it matters much if I don't install it, so I'm going to ignore it.

Trouble is, I can't find a way to tell windows update to STOP automatically notifying me that that update is available. I can cancel it but every time I restart I get the update shield back again.

Obviously, that's not a problem, just an annoyance. But is there a way to tell windows update to stop offering me that particular update permanently?

I know this isn't the 'Email' section. However, more people watch this section so I'm posting here. I started to experience 'Mail' problems in my new, (Jan.), notebook with Win8. The emails I sent were going into the Outbox folder & remaining there. I figured out how to delete them by turning off the Wi-Fi connection. But then someone in the forum told me about updating my apps. I hadn't physically updated any apps since I bought the notebook. Suffice to say after the 'Mail' app had been updated everything started to work ok plus new features which made it easier to operate. So important to update all your apps!!!!

Good morning,

Several weeks ago I received an update for Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5. Unfortunately when WinPatrol asked permission to accept these new updates, I mistakenly clicked no.

I have looked for ways to undo my mistake: I checked my list of installed updates and found 2 Hotfixes for .Net Framework 3.5, KB953595 and KB958484. Also the Firefox addons window shows a new addition: .Net Framework Assistant 1.0. I have searched for the appropriate updates on the Microsoft Update website, but only became lost and confused.

I believe these .Net Framework updates are important for my computer and should be reinstalled correctly. However, I do not know which updates to uninstall nor the correct .Net update to reinstall.

Will someone please advise?

Thank you,

Hi Desmodus


You could:

1) Ignore the failed update for a while & expect a patched update to fix it in a week or so, or -->

2) Try shutting off the Windows Update service, clearning WU temp files, and then restarting the WU service, as in the Microsoft procedure quoted below:

Quote:




To stop the Windows Update service
(You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps).
1. Open Administrative Tools --- by clicking Start, Control Panel, System and Maintenance, and then Administrative Tools.
2. Double-click Services. Administrator permission required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3. Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Stop.

To delete temporary update files
1. Open Computer --- by clicking Start, and then clicking Computer.
2. Double-click the local hard disk where Windows is installed, typically drive C.
3. Double-click the Windows folder, and then double-click the SoftwareDistribution folder.
4. Double-click the DataStore folder to open it, and then delete all files and folders in the folder. Administrator permission required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
5. Click the Back button. In the SoftwareDistribution folder, double-click the Download folder to open it, and then delete all files in the folder. Administrator permission required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3) Peruse the details of the Update, in case you have are using one of the programs that require extra steps for this time-zone update to work properly: --- http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=942763 --- links to direct downloads for the various flavors of the update are also available from that KB article.

4) Use the System Restore feature of Vista to restore your system files to a state prior to the installation of the latest patches, and try again.

If you have success with any of these, post back with your results so that other folks experiencing the same trouble can benefit from your solutions.

Norton may be blocking it, especially seeing this "KB2468871v2 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer."

I don't know which machine you have, but in general Windows updates drivers and not a BIOS. You should update your BIOS if you are exibiting any of the symptoms that the update addresses.

I have two computers in the house on 8.1. I noticed yesterday that on one computer, a certain update was listed as optional, while on the other computer it was listed as important (ftr it was update 3132080). This is not the first time I've noticed that an update is listed differently on the two computers. Anyone know why this is? There really isn't much difference in the setup between the two computers.

A:Cannot Install 'Important' Security Update

I have no idea what may be causing your problem, but you could try getting the update from the Windows Catalog site and see what happens; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323166/en-us

If this works, you will be able to download an .exe file which you just doubleclick on to install. Be sure to read the instructions before using this method.

Alternatively, you could check your Add/Remove list first, just in case the update is already there, or you could run the Secunia Online Inspector, which will confirm whether or not the patch is missing. You will need an up to date version of Sun Java before the Inspector will run; http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/

Yesterday's patch Tuesday Updates offered KB3072305, which is described as an important security update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 (*not* "3.5.1 and above"). Why would this be offered to me when the only version I have listed in Program and Features is 4.5.2? I applied the update, but I am still wondering about this. Thanks.

A:Offered security update for version of .NET Framework I don't have?

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 is native to Windows 7.

You have it if you have Windows 7.

Installing Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 does not uninstall Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1.

Hello
I'm running Windows 8.1 Core 64bit, I'm logged in with Local user account, so device encryption is off and there is no way to enable it.

I have set Windows update to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them". I usually wait several weeks after windows updates are released before I install them.

First when optional updates were released on September 15th I could see KB3084905 listed in available optional updates list, but 2 weeks later when I decided to install optional updates KB3084905 was no longer offered to install.

Was it pulled by Microsoft because it's not applicable to my system since I'm logged in with local user account or for some other reasons?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

A:KB3084905 is no longer offered by windows update

It's been pulled or another cumulative update has it, it's now where to be found in the Microsoft library.

2. Update history says Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.139.1946.0) Successful Important Date installed 14/11/2012 (today)
3. After restart: update history still indicates the above installation was successful yet there is also an indication that "most recent check for updates - never, updates were installed - never". Red x message tells me to check for updates again but then loop back to no.1 message.
4. Tried unchecking all services that were not Microsoft and restarted but problem remains.
Any way out of this loop? Thanks.

then


Open Windows Update

I don't let it download anything myself, and I uncheck the box for give me recommended updates the same as important, these are my settings,



And with this tutorial I've set it to disable OS upgrades,

Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Not sure if you have pro version, if you do you can use either method, if you just have the home version then you can only use option one.

I haven't had anything forced on me and I am in control of what gets downloaded, I install them all anyway except for silverlight and skype.

You have to do it manually but at least you know when and what you are installing.

I'm not sure there is setting that you are looking for, only install important updates doesn't seem be an option.

Separating the recommended from important by unchecking that box in the blue outline will give you only important updates in the important section.

As for the W10 update already downloaded, I think there is a way to get rid of it, I can't remember right now I'm sure someone else will come along with more info.

A:vista wont download and important update

In order to fix this failed update, we must first clean up your .NET framework installation. Download and run this file. It will remove the .NET framework from your computer so that we can reinstall it later (and solve the non-installing update). My sister's laptop did the same, as well as our home desktop (failed update). But don't worry, it is very easy to fix.After running this cleanup tool, it will ask you to reboot. Please do so.Next, download and install this file. This will reinstall the .NET framework onto your computer.After another reboot, download and install this file. This will update the .NET framework to what it should be (what the automatic update was failing to do).Now, check Windows Update again, and see if anything shows up.

DO NOT let windows update dl and instal drivers for hardware devices such as video cards, sound cards automatically. If it detects an update for a device, go download it from the manufacturers website directly, (nvidea users, nvidea has a nice little auto-detect feature on their site so you cant get the wrong driver). only let windows update dl and install updates for microsoft products only.

A:changing update settings to important updates only--help?

First of all, you don't need to Install Windows optional updates.
Secondly, you should change your Windows Update Setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them".
 
After you have changed the Windows Update Setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them", Windows Update will search again for available updates.
When the search is complete, look for KB3035583, and hide this update.
 
The Disadvantage is that you have to manually search for Windows Updates.
But the Advantage is that you have more control of which of the Windows Updates is being Installed on your Laptop.

I tried the fix from the link that Cookiegal posted but it didn't fix my problem. I did notice that there was another DWORD Value that I didn't remember seeing when I went in to try the fix. Do I delete that one? Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Hi,

On my updates settings page it is stuck on "Install updates automatically (recommended)". The box is faded out and I am unable to click on the drop-down. I'm sure my updates never used to be automatic...Is there a way to change this setting?

A:trouble changing my important update settings

Welcome
First make sure that you are in an administrative account. If you are create a new administrator account yours may be corrupt. If that does not help.

Disable the UAC and boot. Then enable it again, see if things are better. If they are not try the hidden administrator.


User Account Control (UAC)

Administrator Account
