KB3065987 – makes “improvements” to the windows update client (really just more Win10 bullshit)
KB3075249 – adds yet more telemetry, This update adds telemetry points to the User Account Control (UAC) feature to collect information on elevations that come from low integrity levels.
KB3075851 – makes “improvements” to the windows update client (really just more Win10 bullshit)
KB3080149 – adds yet more telemetry, The diagnostics tracking service collects diagnostics about functional issues on Windows systems that participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP). CEIP reports do not contain contact information, such as your name, address, or telephone number.
KB971033 - Description of the update For Windows Activation Technologies

cmd:
sc stop Diagtrack
sc delete Diagtrack

Task Scheduler Library: disable
Everything under "Application Experience"
Everything under "Autochk"
Everything under "Customer Experience Improvement Program"
Under "Disk Diagnostic" only the "Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector"
Under "Maintenance" "WinSAT"
"Media Center" and click the "status" column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.

services.msc:
"Remote Registry" to "Disabled" instead of "Manual".
>>
Except for the Windows 10 upgrade, none of this is a non-issue.

Stop using a Microsoft product if you don't want telemetry.

Don't forget to add 3102812 to that list: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3102812

Basically messes with WU itself, so it's safer to assume that it'll allow for background downloading of W10.
>>
Is there any way to disable these updates before I download any? I have windows dualboot and need it sometimes for school and stuff.
I haven't updated my win 7 after that win 10 spam came out.
>>
>>51468737
Except every major update to Windows 10 from this point onwards will be an in-place upgrade install, rendering any "clean" install you did pointless.

I figured this out the hard way.
>>
>>51468819
You can always use the Media Creation Tool to get installation media of the latest release.

Resetting Windows 10 after installing a new release will clean reinstall that release.
>>
>>51468819
Won't they still provide up-to-date ISOs with this downloader tool, where the update has been integrated?
>>
>>51468804
AFAIK, the only way is to review your updates and hide the select ones as soon as you do a clean install.

Massive pain in the ass, primary reason I got tired and just migrated to Linux (currently on Sabayon, liking it so far, but I want to give Arch a shot.)
>>
>>51468840
Cool, wasn't sure about that before.
>>
>>51468845
That's what they have done since 8.1 so yes.
>>
>>51468840
>>51468845
See, the idea is NOT to keep needing to do a clean install, not ALWAYS doing a reinstall.
>>
I haven't updated my Win 7 since February and I don't see any reason why I should anyway.
>>
>>51468699
I only had like 5 of these updates
>>
Where do you even find this shit in windows? I haven't updated ever, how much of that stuff would even be on my computer?
>>
We want Edge for Win8
>>
>>51468792
Added to the pasta, thanks for the heads up
>>
>>51468699
Is this ok to use?

>>51469071
why would anyone want edge?

you stupid niggers need to be shot on sight.

The only update that'll allow for background W10 download and sets the foundation for that is the June 2014 Windows Update Client Update and all Clients after that.
