I wouldn't worry about that one too much Thrash. Just another monthly Windows update client. As long as you have set your windows update settings correctly and don't install KB2952664 and KB3035583 then it won't do anything. Plus, if I remember correctly, you have GWX control panel installed so I wouldn't be concerned about it.
There's nothing to monitor 2 machines will never be upgraded they are not compatible and I'm quite happy with the installs they have win-7 and Linux mate 17.1 at the moment

Wait until they will upgrade your Linux to W10. Desperate as they are, anything is possible.

Well, I'm waiting to see Lady Fitzgerald's take on this.

I can just picture her doing an Alice from the Dilbert cartoons:

"MUST... CONTROL... FIST... OF... DEATH"

Anyway, I'm still safe with my Windows 7 Professional as far as I can tell according to GWX Control Panel. Of course, not installing any of the GWX/telemetry/Windows Update Client, etc. updates over the past year has helped too.

Nothing surprises me. I've just heard Microsoft has acquired SwiftKey on Android and iOS so they'll be collecting cloud data off of those phones too now!

Re: keeping Windows offline: I ran W7 offline for many years before finally breaking down and getting the internet. (Actually, my wife bought a laptop when she retired, and I then discovered how valuable it is for my music creation). And before 7, I ran W98 for many years offline. No problems with either.

You pictured correctly. I haven't said anything because I don't want to get banned.

I'm seeing an update KB3133445 and without further in-depth info, this one isn't going to be downloaded.

I also saw the return of KB2952664 as mentioned above.

So that's another one to watch out for. "Update Client" could be interpreted by different people as the updater for fixes/patches (Update Agent) or an updater for the OS.

RAM usage creeps up?
Hi Folks, I'm on the RTM build (one of the custom "touched" builds) and I've noticed that my RAM usage seems to rise the longer I'm on. For instance: Yesterday I came home from work and started my machine. After startup the RAM was at around 27% just idling. I then checked my mails, looked at...
