Except that peronally I'd run an Elevated Command Prompt then type:

Powershell

Press Enter

Copy and paste the following:

Code:
get-hotfix -id KB2876229,KB2923545,KB2970228,KB3035583,KB2990214,KB3021917,KB3068708,KB2592687,KB2660075,KB2506928,KB2952664,KB3050265,KB2726535,KB2994023,KB3022345,KB3068708,KB3065987
Then press enter. See if any of those are found. Also I reckon that it is possible that Windows Updates check for files in Software Distribution Download folder or WINSXS and installs them if found. I'm not 100% sure on that one but it is one reason why I run advanced disk cleanup (include WU cleanup) after removing updates.

KB3102810 information posted on above link states it updates windows update components yet again so Windows 10 downloading and installation is the ultimate aim of this update.

Weird

I uninstalled KB3102810 yesterday and then I ran Windows Update so that I could "Hide" it.

Windows Update listed a Security Patch (KB2758694) that was released in January 2013!
It must be related to KB3102810, because I'd install an anti-RCE patch and it hasn't been sitting in my Update list for ~3 years.

I reinstalled KB2758694 and then I ran Windows Update Cleanup.

I wonder why that one is on the list?

Update
I was forced to reimage my PC due to the carnage KB3102810 caused when I uninstalled it (I lost my "Hidden Updates" list and "Programs and Features" was totally screwed up too).

Not sure it is some thing I would not normally install because it's out of my usage
I would never drag a file into outlook.com or office 2007 outlook so this update I would of skipped so no telling which this update addresses it just says outlook

Sorry - I posted the wrong list! I have several lists and one of them includes updates that I do not need as well as Windows 10 stuff.

While in the middle of a senior moment day before yesterday I did my latest Windows Updates. Not a good idea.

Long story in short form. KB3102810 got in and I uninstalled it earlier today after catching up on the current status. I didn't have any problems with removing it but did notice that I had a strange result. For what it's worth.

Earlier this month I followed these instructions offered by Brds7t7:
Quote:
You can configure this Group Policy object by using Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc). You can do this by going to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update, double-clicking "Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update", and then clicking Enabled

Or to suppress this offer through the registry, set the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
DWORD: DisableOSUpgrade = 1
After removing the update I no longer have the option "Turn off the upgrade to the latest version of Windows through Windows Update" in the Group Policy. However in checking the registry "DisableOSUpGrade" is set to 1. Then again I may still be in my "senior moment" status.

I got into the hiding of W10 prep. updates after a few had been installed, but when I uninstalled them (KB3102810 included), I lost all of the update history. Didn't lose any listing of the installed updates, just the history listing. I've not had any other repercussions from that activity. Different versions of KB3102810 must have had different effects on the various systems it "infected". This whole W10 update process has been so terribly crafted and executed, it will be a very long time before I go that route.

I completely agree and way to much drama for my taste.
