Error code 57A when installing Windows Update KB982312 (MS Office 2007)

Update KB982312 continually fails to install.  This is an update for MS Office 2007.  It gives an error code of 57A.  At an earlier date, I asked whether I should install MS Office updates as I do not have MS Office on my computer.  I was told here that I should install them.  I do have MS Works installed though.  Should I put this update in the hidden list?

Here's what I recommend you to do:

1. Turn off UAC. Don't just lower down the restrictions - turn it off completely.
2. Restart your computer for the change to take into effect.
3. Re-download Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System (KB982331) from the link below:
4. Install it. It should be working fine.
5. If it still does not work, try to open any or all of your MS Office applications (like MS Word, MS Excel, etc).
6. Follow Step # 3.

Let me know your findings.
