  • Windows Update says my Office install was administrative but it isn't.

    I just installed Office 2003 on my home computer from CD, but when I went to Office Update, it says:
    NOTE: Detection shows that Office products on your computer have been updated by your Office product administrator from the administrative installation point on a server.
    What's going on?

    Windows XP SP2, Office 2003 SP1

    I presume it was an original Office CD rather than a copy of an administrative installation burnt onto a CD -- I've seen the latter used when admins dont want to overload a network (as well as for shadier purposes )
