    I've got a problem with the Security Update for Excel Viewer 2003
    (KB914451). On every machine in our environment is the Excel Viewer
    installed as Default Viewer for xls-Files. On some machines Office 2003
    Prof is installed too.
    Now, with the installation of the Security Update for Excel Viewer 2003
    (KB914451), on machines with office and the Viewer installed, the Excel
    Viewer is set as the default application for xls-files instead of
    Excel. So the users aren't very happy.... The rollout hasn't started
    and I don't want to reset the default app for xls Files manually or
    provide a script to reset it back again to excel.
    So, is there a way to prevent the update from setting the vewer as the
    default app for xls-Files?
    Kind regards,
