You'll probably get a lot of recommendations.

Here are a few:

Go to Control Panel/Windows update/change settings and make sure that this box is not checked: Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates.

Under "important updates", choose "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them".

You can also disable participation in Microsoft's Customer Experience Program:

How to Opt Out of the Microsoft Office Customer Experience Improvement Program

And you can try to maintain a list of Windows updates that are related to Windows 10 and telemetry and see that those updates remain uninstalled. That may or may not work as they may continue to be offered, possibly under another KB number.

Here's mine.

I'm NOT saying it's accurate or that you should pay the slightest attention to it.



2819745; it’s a “possibly to be avoided”

2952664 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparation)

2976978 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparation); I don’t have this as of 8/23/15

2977759 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparation); I don’t have this as of 8/23/15; "performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program in order to determine…"

3021917 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparati0on + Telemetry)

3022345 (Telemetry)

3035583 (Windows 10 upgrade preparation)

3050265 (a June 2015 replacement for 2990214)

3065987 (a July 2015 replacement for 2990214); may be OK as it might allow a way to block other Win 10 related KBs.

3068708 (Telemetry) (a later replacement for 3022345)

3075249 (Telemetry); first seen 8/19/15

Also here is another list built by another member:
Has Microsoft permanently damaged Windows 7?

Those as well as the previously said are known malware updates and must never be installed. New ones may appear from time to time, so our only option to defend against those nasties is to carefully review each and every update we install.

And of course, remember to turn off any automatic updates, so you can't get infected without knowing. The highest safe option is "notify but don't install", and the prefered is "never install or notify". All others ask for trouble in the long run.
