For the past few months, the web version of Windows Update does not work with XP. When you click the button for Express or Custom install, the system stalls out looking for updates. So I had to set Windows to notify me of updates instead of going to the site, but now it keeps wanting me to download updates for Office 2007 and 2010, but I don't own those products (I use Office 2003). I could not get it to stop this, even when I checked the box not to notify me of those anymore. Finally I went to the site and found an option to Disable Microsoft Update, which said I could still download updates from the site, But I can't because it tries to force me to re-download Microsoft Update.
What's going on? I don't like the new Microsoft Update because it keeps nagging me to download updates for products I don't even own. How can I update only Windows XP?????? This is very fustrating.
