How can I turn off Microsoft Office updates ONLY and keep any other Microsoft product on with automatic updates?

I moved this to the Office forum. I recommend that you NOT use auto updates. IMO that is just another method to dumb down control of your computer.

At the most, use notifications and then go to the site using custom instead of express. Review each update to determine if you want to install it. If there is a critical update for Office then by all means install it. I NEVER allow Microsoft to install any hardware updates (drivers). If it has problems then go to the manufacturer's site for updated drivers.

If you don't want to do that then you can change the parameters to notify and when going there you can mark NOT to show anymore updates like that.

When using Windows 7 you have a Windows update program listed under the Start button. Go there and choose settings, then make changes as desired.

Thanks. Yes I know how to do that but the reason I ask is that my
version of Microsoft office is not pucker. Each time I switch on even
though I have it switched to inform me it keeps flashing up a
message telling me that it is not pucker. How do I stop that?

It is not registered? As I stated you can customize the settings even more when there are updates waiting. For instance, I am using Windows 7 and it wants me to install IE8. You can check to hide that update in the future. Your should be able to do that with all Office updates as they appear. Then update will not try to feed them to you anymore.

Hi,

If it's not Pucker, I presume it is not a legally purchased copy of MS Office.

Buy a legal copy of MS Office - end of problem.

If you don't want / can't afford to buy MS Office, try Open Office, its free, look here.

Regards

Please refrain from asking (and answering) questions related to illegally obtained copies of applications. The rules posted here do not allow it.

If this discussion continues, I will be forced to delete the thread.

The OP did not actually state the software is illegal. We shouldn't make assumptions.

Hi OtheHill,

The OP said it was 'not Pucker' , which means 'not genuine'. It is a term used in the UK.

BTW it should be Pukka or Pucka not Pucker.
