Not many good things come from optional or even too often recommended updates which usually cause most of the problems we see posted here every updates cycle

Right click and hide it.
Click on the "More Information" link on the right side to see what it is. This just takes you to a web page.

It was more of a rhetorical question.

Before you install Windows 10 Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows

It`s getting even more ridiculous

I am not a lawyer or legal expert but isn't that fraud under U.S. law/regulation or does it violate the EULA or contract laws? Contract laws are state it could be legal in one state but in another state it wouldn't be. I am not accusing Microsoft of anything, I am just wondering if what they are doing is legal with these updates in the U.S.? The EFF hasn't said anything yet.

Why are you guys all avoiding these updates? It's not like they are going to force Windows 10 on systems. Oops, gave them an idea... (I am not trying to be rude or trying to offend anyone)

I've found a couple updates that don't like to be hidden
1) Silverlight
2) ie11
If any others popup I just let them sit in the optional section to collect dust there.

I use both of those. Remember, Amazon uses silverlight. It seems to work better than flash. I have no idea what Amazon is going to replace silverlight with.
