If you just want to hide them

In the list that shows all 4 updates, right click each in turn and select "Hide". That will hide them.

I've had these and although I don't have Office installed either, I just let them install without any problem. Whether they install or are just ignored, I can't say.

Did you ever have Office installed on this system?

Many machines came with Microsoft's Office Demo preinstalled

That's why many of these updates show up even when we didn't install Office (the machine came with the demo preinstalled.)

I'd hide them or uninstall that Office demo.
