Win 7 Updates vs. Office 2003

WIN Updates post

I'm running Windows 7 on an Acer 5517. I replaced Office 2007 with Office 2003 (because I like 2003 better).

The problem is: when I download Windows Updates it doesn't read my Office 2003. So when I try to get into Word or Excel it can't find the files. i did a system Restore and got it back, but is there a way around this? If I need some important updates I should probably have them, but I don't want to keep running into this. (And I still don't want Office 7)

Anyone know which Windows update files I should avoid in the future, and which will not affect the Office programs? Or is this asking too much?
