Windows 7 - cannot get updates for Office 2003

After hours of talking on the phone, I turn on these forums for help.

I have Windows 7 x 64 Professional with all current updates.  I also have MS Office 2003.

While I am able to receive and update the operating system, I get no prompt or suggested updates for Office 2003.  From Office 2003 and then clicking on "Help/Check for Updates ' do nothing.  Interesting is going to 'Control Panel/system and security/Windows Update' and then clicking on "get updates for other Microsoft products...". To learn more"anything also.

My question: I use Firefox exclusively and I was wondering if IE is required to activate these functions?  Currently, I have disabled and is not installed.

HOW TO activate features Windows turn on or off

You can not uninstall IE8 on Windows 7, but you can disable access to it (for example, to disable IE8). Similarly, you cannot reinstall IE8 in Windows 7, but you can reactivate access to him (i.e., turn on IE8).

If it's a Win7 64-bit computer, you have two versions of IE8: IE8 64 bit (the default) and IE8 32 bit. See this previous discussion:

  • 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."
    (C:\WINDOWS\Installer\{91E30409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9)\graph.ico 131)
    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

    Have you tried to install the updates manually?  If this isn't the case, I would start by doing this.  Click Start > all programs > Windows Update > view update history; Double-click a update failed, and then click the link under "More information."  This should take you to a page on this update and the file available for download.  You can then save on your system and run it manually by simply double-clicking it.  Alternatively, you can perform a clean boot before installing.

  • Install the update for office 2003 KB2289187 security

    Whenever I start my computer, I learned that the KB2289187 update is ready to be installed. However, when I click OK to install it fails to install. If I can't install is there a way I can stop it tells me that it has to wait for the installation.

    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.

    but I think you have to go to the update site itself to hide or show updates for xp.

    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.

    The malicious software removal tool does not use an installer. As a general rule, when you run the malicious software removal tool, it creates a temporary directory named at random on the root of the drive of the computer. This directory contains several files, and it includes the Mrtstub.exe file. Most of the time, this folder is automatically deleted after the tool to the end of execution or the next time that you start the computer. However, this folder may not always be automatically deleted. In these cases, you can manually delete this file, and this has no adverse effect on the computer.

    Visit the Microsoft Solution Center and antivirus security for resources and tools to keep your PC safe and healthy. If you have problems with the installation of the update itself, visit the Microsoft Update Support for resources and tools to keep your PC updated with the latest updates.
