Vista attempting to update a phantom program

How do I stop Vista from trying to install an update for a program I don't have installed?

For some reason, Vista has decided that I need to install a security update for Powerpoint 2007 (KB982158) despite the fact I've never had Powerpoint installed on this computer.
I've tried deselecting the update, but it reselects itselt. I've tried 'hiding' it, but it reappears. I've tried ignoring it, but every time I turn the machine off, it insists on attempting to install the update and (unsurprisingly) fails.
Why does Vista think I need this update, and how do I convince it otherwise?
