Outlook 07 isn't installed, still getting the junk email filter up

This is something that has been bugging me way back since Office 2003, so I
figure it might be about time to see if I can do something about it. :p

Despite never having installed Outlook on my machines (I prefer to use a
different email client), I am always being offered the update for Outlooks
junk email filter. A bit of searching pulled up these two semi-relevant
results:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830335

http://www.microsoft.com/office/com...ffice-office&lang=en&cr=US&sloc=en-us&m=1&p=1

The KB article seems a bit vague, and seems to say basically "too bad, so
sad", and the forum post suggests that Microsoft Update just offers you
updates based on the version of Office installed, and not the actual
components, which I have trouble believing seeing as I don't get any updates
for other components I don't have installed (Visio, One Note, Access etc), or
even other updates for Outlook besides this junk email filter.

This thing really has me stumped. The best I can do is just hiding the
update each month when windows notifies me of what’s available. This isn't so
much a solution as a workaround (obviously). I see this problem on every
computer I do work or repairs on, so I don’t think it’s limited to something
I’m doing/not doing.

Sorry for the long post, but hopefully it gives someone enough info to help
me out or point me in the right direction.

Regards,
Daniel

Did you install any Office 2007 Viewers like the Word,Power Point,Excel Viewers. If
you did that is why the download. Just hide it

Thanks for the fast reply.

I definately haven't installed any of the viewers. This behaviour is
apparent even on a clean install of Windows with Office.

Did you have Outlook installed at any time in the past like a Trial version or
another Office suite from what you now have installed

I'm afraid not. As I said, this behaviour is apparent even on a clean install
of Windows with Office. (Note: I always do a custom install of Office, so as
not to install components I don't want/need, Outlook obviously being one of
them)
