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 wouldn't worry about that. It seems that whenever you remove a windows update client update it does somehow reset the Windows update history. It's similar to when you do a repair Install, that resets a lot of things. It won't cause any other issues though.

And I do agree, the way MS has gone about the whole 10 upgrade has been ridiculous.

MS is using the old "Annoy You Until You Comply With Our Demands" tactic:
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"
"Why haven't you upgraded yet?"

Take that, MS!

I notice this update I installed today, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3112336 It's a Win 8.1 update,

Moved the $WINDOWS.~BT from hidden to out in the open in the root of C,

Microsoft to users: You'll download Windows 10, and you'll like it-2015-12-01_22h27_02.png

That folder didn't even show up until 11/15 on my computer.

I don't know if the GWX changed at the same time but it doesn't say reserve anymore,

Microsoft to users: You'll download Windows 10, and you'll like it-2015-12-01_22h28_31.png

I'm curious to see how aggressive they get, I'm not worried about it though.

I install just about every update, no Bing or Skype, but I do it manually.

Yeah, there's one been released for Windows 7 too Derek:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3112343

Another Windows update client update but judging by the description looks like it's adding some additional functionality/annoyances (delete as appropriate).

Assume that you use Software Update agent to apply software updates or determine the software update compliance in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2. Windows Update agent scans client computers periodically. In this situation, the scan fails and generates a "Not Required" state for all updates. Additionally, you receive an "8007000E" error message.
I use windows update, I don't use System Center Configuration Manager. I take it is ok to hide this. It would be pointless to install.

I wonder if MS would leave us alone if we gave them some chocolate milk?
