1) Confirmed... kinda sorta... The rollup "removes" about 150 or so individual KB's Post SP1---> April 2016 Patch Tues from the Installed Updates listing in Control Panel---> Programs & Features---> Installed Updates (see screenshot below) and replaces the components of those 150 or so updates with a single listing "KB3125574" (Conv Rollup)

After the rollup KB's 3068708, 3075249 & 3080149 are installed even though they do not appear under the "Installed Updates" tab. But to further complicate & muddy the situation after running Windows Update Cleanup & subsequent WU check for updates you'll likely (depending on your settings) find:

There are 6 Win 10 GWX/Telemetry related KB's listed to avoid/hide - 2952664 3021917 3035583 3068708 3080149 & 3123862.

Wait... whut? 3068708 & 3080149 are listed? I thought they were installed with the rollup, and as such should NOT be listed in WU as "available"???. Yes, in a perfect world they would NOT be listed but this is WinDOZE Updates we're talkin'...

BOTTOM LINE: hide the 6 offered updates and just live with the fact that WU is, was & always will be FUBAR,

Hi,

I have had a new Windows 7 install yesterday and I have got 226 updates offered, I just got all of them only to see how far it goes.

I have found this supposed solution that I am going to test it right now :

The "Bottom Line 6 updates..." line you quote is directed to a fully-patched system with the KB3125574 Convenience Rollup Update successfully applied. IT HAS NO BEARING on your system, with a fresh install.

I had a quick look at the Aegis link... their Update list to avoid borders on Alex Jones like conspiracy-theorist paranoia IMHO

YMMV.

For those of us who have been around for a while, (over 30 years) and dealing with Microsoft, the promise of a Roll-Up for Windows 7 is just another broken promise.
I just installed Windows 7 on my PC, (to replace Win-10) and then I downloaded and installed SP1. That seems to work well, but after that I just turned OFF Auto Updates.
I am afraid that MS might do like they did with XP....send out updates that would cripple XP, forcing people to upgrade to Vista. So I personally don't want any more upgrades to my Windows 7, from MS. It's running just fine the way it is.

I ran many a service call, to repair PC's that has been disabled by an update from MS. Once bitten twice shy!
I'm getting too old now, to put up with that BS on my own PC.

Cheers Mates and Happy Computing!

So... this rollup update doesn't add anything good, but telemetry crap?
Bah... it was too good to be true.

WU still disabled here so. Farewell WU...
