MS Office 2003 Pro SP3 updates fail to install

  Awestruck 16:27 06 Feb 2009

A client of mine has a problem with SP3 updates for MS Office Pro 2003.
Every day an update (SP3) for Office Pro 2003 tries to install and fails (Error 1603), This produces an orphan *msp file in his Windows\Installer folder.
His folder eventually contained 20Gb of orphans.
I must find out how to stop these irritating updates, Any clues? A search on Google shows many similarly afflicted people but no cure.

Try going to the MS Update Site, find that update and set it at "Do not show me again" - might work. The other alternative is to set auto update to notify but do not download or install. The client could then check himself and do a custom download and install - bit of an irritation I admit.
