I just want to be able to disable updates for office 2007 standard. that will solve my problem. can someone tell me how to proceed?

Thank you


Hi Mary,

I suggest you to check the number of KB updates to isolate the problem.

To see the updates are installed on the computer, follow these steps:

a. click Start, click all programsand then click Windows Update or Microsoft Update.

b. click view update history. A window opens that displays all the updates that are installed and those who have not installed properly on the computer.

You can perform the System Restore before you install the Windows updates and check.

Important: System Restore will return all your files non-system as documents, email, music, etc., to a previous state. These files of types are completely affected by the restoration of the system. If it was your intention with this tool to recover a deleted file to non-system, try using a file instead of system restore recovery program.

You can Configure Windows to install only specific updates.  Check out the link for more information.

For any question related to Office documents, I suggest you please post your query in Office and Outlook Forums for assistance.

Please post back with the State of the question, so that we can help you further.

  • Impossible (to install office 2003 after repeated failures of the updates for office 2003 re security)

    The security update for office 2003 on my XP (SP3) kept failing throughout the last week. I contacted the support of MS PC security by phone and I was transferred from the Department the installation program office at Department of update of security for customer service. And none of them had no idea of what is the problem. I lost patience with MS is supported. I followed some other technique posted on the web for the same question and tried to uninstall office 2003 and re - install. However my new installation of office 2003 meets the following error (same error I got when I tried to apply the security updates)

    "Error 2932: an internal error has occurred."

    Contact the Services de Support technique Microsoft (PSS) for assistance. »

    After the Installer rolls back all the facilities. Now I find myself with no office 2003 (I tried office 2007 install with the same result).

    I would really appreciate it if other users can help you with a fix for this or MS support engineer.

    My desktop is hp pavilion PC under XP (SP3).

    Finally, I was able to get good support from Microsoft. A Microsoft support engineer remotely connected to my machine and was able to fix the installation/update directories corrupted microsoft who were at the origin of the problem. I managed to install office with success and things are back to normal. I had given up hope after my original support request (2 weeks back) and the first experience with the customer. But MS technical support engineers (the less one that helped me yesterday) seem to have a good idea of what was going on and was able to solve my problem quickly. Thank you MS support

    Yes, there are simply some updates may not be installed or that affect some computers.

    There is a feature to 'hide' the update so it nags is no longer the user.

    the hide feature has been added for vista and win7.

    If I remember, simply leave the site scan your computer for available updates,

    then when she gives you a list of them, the possibility to choose and hide one of them will be provided on the Web page.

  • Code received 57 a, preventing the update of Microsoft Outlook 2007

    I use a HP m9600t with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit desktop PC and using 8 GB of RAM on an Intel i7 920 processor.  When recently trying to do a Windows Update and Microsoft Outlook 2007 installed, the installation process has ended and reported a 57 a Code.  What should I do to fix this?

    Hi TLK Franklin,.
    Here are the steps to solve the problem:
    The file to be downloaded and installed is called SubInACL.exe and can be downloaded from this web site

    If you attempted to install the Office Update 'today', when the research is completed, look for a log dated with today's date. Open and he will tell you in the first line the registry key was the cause of the problem.
    When you create your "batch" file, you can include the registry (as shown) or you can just correct the set of registry keys as described in the file msi*.log. personally, I would "fix" all of the registry.
    To create the file command, open the Notepad, then copy and paste the text between the lines broken in it. When pasted, remove blank lines.
    You will then need to "save under" resetreg.bat or something similar. The ILO is important is that it is saved with the extension "beats".
    CD /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    Subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Grant = administrators = f/Grant = system = f
    Subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Grant = administrators = f/Grant = system = f
    Subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Grant = administrators = f/Grant = system = f
    Subinacl % lecteur_systeme % /subdirectories / Grant = administrators = f/Grant = system = f
    Subinacl /subdirectories %windir%|*.*/Grant = administrators = f/Grant = system = f
    secedit/configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf/db defltbase.sdb / verbose
    OK, you have installed "subinacl.exe", you have created your batch file and are ready to go.

    Locate your file of commands newly created, right-click on it and select "Run as Administrator". A CMD window appears automatically and the process will start. When you are finished, the CMD window closes automatically.

    You can now restart your computer and then go to Windows Update and install the updates.

    I hope this helps.

    Download updates but let me choose whether to install them - if you select this option, Windows will download the updates on your computer, but not install them automatically.
