Default windows update still showing office

I recently uninstalled the trial version of Office 2007 Home and Student. I still get office updates when I run Windows updates.

I unistalled office and all previously installed updates. Is there anything I can do to get windows update from wanting to install office updates?

Yes open up updates options (control panel ==> windows update) the option is on the left side of the update panel. Turn of automatic updates and choose to install manually. This lets you choose which updates to install from a list. I recommend everyone to do this anyway.

yeah...I never let windows automatically update. I've gone through and hidden all the old office 2007 updates on the list. I just don't understand why I still occasionally get new office updates on the update list, considering I uninstalled office 2007.
