    I have Office 2003 on three of my Home PC's (All legitimate Licenses). Belarc Advisor tells me that two of the three PC's do not have the following two recent updates installed:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947319/

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973923/

    Windows Updates is not showing them in the update history and does not show them as being available for download. I thought that there used to be a way to download the updates individually and install them manually, but I can no longer find these individual downloads. The Microsoft Office Update Page seems to point me to Windows Update for any updates. I do not think that this is related, but on all three of my home PC's I have chose not to download and install the Genuine Windows Advantage Notification Update.

    What could be the problem and what can I do to correct it?

    Thanks in Advance.

    TK7, I also use BA to tell me when there are M$ updates, and I look to BillP's
    Blog, owner of Win Patrol, in case there are in-between vital updates.

    I still have BA showing the Red X (missing), against KB973923 because I could not find
    it anywhere at M$, apparently it's some kind of C++ SP1 Redistributable,
    whatever that might be.
    Checked your other number at M$ and it's not known, can't tell why BA
    is suddenly showing these but if you are concerned I would ask BA, they replied quickly with a workaround on some other issue.

    Oh yes and I do have the Genuine whatever to which you refer, so it's not that in your way.

    Microsoft is slowly migrating clients from using Microsoft Windows Update to using the more versatile and dynamic Microsoft Update, better off to just switch now:
