Windows 7: Scared to update Windows 7 - Don't want Windows 10 at all

The first link is an update FOR Windows 10 meaning it's also being pushed out to 10 machines but doesn't relate to the 10 upgrade on 7/8 machines.
Some of the updates are pushed out to multiple OS with the same KB number.

And bleeping computer forum mentions nothing about that update relating to 10 upgrade.

I've read both articles from start to finish. I would suggest reading those again.
Also, look at the replies that people have written and you'll see that people are worrying over that update for no reason.
There is too much paranoia surrounding some of these updates at the moment. If you want to skip security updates that's your choice. But you do so at your own risk!

You can install every patch offered - even the optional ones - and just tell W7 not to update to W10.

No sir I dont' want a nagging screen notification in my task bar to update to Windows 10. I don't want Microsoft to quietly download additional files being required for Windows 10 in the background without my knowledge; thus wasting my disk space.

The nag is not in taskbar's notification area.

The W10 installation files have not downloaded.

Every update is installed - including KB3038853.

I oversee way too many computers to do this Windows Update stuff manually.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
"DisableGWX"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
"AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000000
"ReservationsAllowed"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
Those settings do not address some people's fear of telemetry.

These windows update settings will insure all Recommended updates will be in the Optional section and not the Important section,
Scared to update Windows 7 - Don't want Windows 10 at all
So only focus on Important updates and load them.

10 updates have not been pushed as security updates. At least not yet anyway.

AddRam has extra updates on his list, but not all relate to 10/telemetry.
That is correct, my list also includes useless updates, that's why you read each one's description. If you still want to install it then that is your choice.

I'm not asking people to look up for each and every update listed I simply am asking people to mark the ones they already know are related to the issue. Hence the list
