Uninstalling Updates

Saturday, February 13, 2021 by kona0197 | Discussion: Personal Computing

So I have Office 2007 installed cuz I bought it way back in the day when I was a student. Still works, even on Windows 10. I made the mistake of allowing Windows to update it, but I don't like Office being updated. Works fine without updates. So I went in and removed as many updates as I could, but there are 4 that refuse to be removed. Please tell me there's an easy way, without reinstalling Windows or Office, to remove the updates?

I can't think of anything you could do to get rid of those updates, except for maybe do a full uninstall and reinstall.

Might I suggest that you use Libre Office instead? Its free (but you can donate), its handy, it handles Microsoft Office files, and it doesn't update unless you allow it.
