When Your Update Doesn't Update

Windows Server Update Service (WSUS to those that live and breathe acronyms) is supposed to help IT pros download patches. But for some running Office 2003, WSUS has been known to block these critical patches.

Fortunately, there's a fix in the form of an update (and yes, there's a way to install the update despite the blocking).

The good news, besides the fix, is that WSUS was blocking only Office patches, not all patches.
