I rarely participate on that forum anymore because the owner and one of the mods are jerks.
OK thanks, good to know

The article seems to indicate that the W10 stuff would be in a roll up by definition:

Convenience rollups are a single package of fixes that were designed at "recommended" by Microsoft
Perhaps there is a typo in that sentence.
Maybe it was supposed to read:
...were designed as "recommended"...

A lot of the W10 stuff has come in thru recommended updates... which is why there are so many forum posts suggesting that users remove the check by "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" in the Windows Update settings.
It has been reported that the convenience rollup includes telemetry updates.

KB3068708, KB3075249 & KB3080149

Disable via TaskSheduler.

Additional info:

Open Task Scheduler. Under Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft disable or delete the following items:
Everything under “Application Experience”
Everything under “Autochk”
Everything under “Customer Experience Improvement Program”
Under “Disk Diagnostic” delete only the “Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector”
Under “Maintenance” “WinSAT”
“Media Center” and click the “status” column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.

Media Center tweak is optional.

I think Microsoft would like to roll up and throw away those of us who still run W7.
I think they were referring to me.

Oh well, if I am still around in July of 2017 we shall make our decision.

Hi Challender ,

So do I understand it well that if I set these changes in the Task Scheduler ( before), that I then could use this rollup safely, that is to say, without getting rolled up into W 10 ?

Cheers,
Thelma

It's nothing to do with upgrading to Windows 10. They are just telemetry updates similar to those included in Windows 10 but released for Windows 7.

Also changes would need to be made after installing rollup.

MICROSOFT SAYS:
"It would be a lot more convenient for us if you'd all roll up your installations of Windows 7, and throw them in to the river."
(there we go, just a simple misunderstanding, that's all)

Opting out of ceip should be all that is needed or at least what we are made to believe
Which looking at the services you posted would suggest that is not the case
Start and type in the search box
Customer Experience Improvement Program
And see if one is opted out or not which I was all of those services were enabled :/
Except for windows media center which is off in windows features.
