Hi, I own MS Office 2003. However, I only have Word, Excel, Publisher, and Frontpage installed on my computer (not Access, Powerpoint, or Outlook [though I do have Outlook Express]).

I just went to the MS Office update site today and it told me I should install an update for Outlook. Though Outlook is not installed on my system, should I still download and install the update?

thank you,

The updates are offered generically regardless of what's actually installed. Office Update offers Office 2000 updates, to Publisher 2000 when it isn't actually installed. It also offers me more Office Assistants despite the fact I killed the little [bleep] three years ago :tazz:

You can opt to download it though then it'll find that Outlook isn't available and tell you so when it tries to install. It's worth trying to install it as it may patch some other files in the meantime that affect the rest of Office.
