No. They are "Windows Update Client" upgrades and only future versions will install automatically. The old versions can only be installed manually.

Thanks Callender, I found one from that last list you gave us so I uninstalled it.

KB 2990214 - Apr 2015 - WUC: enables ability to upgrade to Win10

KB 3065987 - Jul 2015 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3050265) adds telemetry

KB 3075851 - Aug 2015 - WUC: fixes mess due to KB3065987 [cuts down WUC memory usage, but hides Update notifications if GWX app is active] (replaces 3065987)

KB 3083324 - Sep 2015 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3075851) adds telemetry

KB 3083710 - Oct 2015 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3083324) adds telemetry


Before running the updates for my wife's laptop, I checked and found 2 of the above updates so I uninstalled both.
Unfortunately her laptop is still running the updates S-L-O-W. I think to MS this is all just a big W7 cat and mouse game.

This is my little Specialized High Intensity Training list of Win 10 downgrade, telemetry, and vague updates to avoid. So far, I haven't had any problems with slow updates.

Lady:

Any chance you can post that list in numerical order so I can cross-check against my own list?

I don't think I've got that many items in my own list.

I've been having these naughty thoughts that I might just bend over and allow myself to be assimilated by Win 10, so I need the strength to resist.

I added those numbers as I encountered them and I've been too lazy to put them in order. When I get updates, I just run dowm the list and compare the last four digits. It goes plenty fast.

Edit: This is your lucky day, my friend. I'm killing time waiting for some epoxy to cure enough to allow trimming with a razor blade so I went ahead and put them in numerical order for you:

Thank you very much; that goes into my master file on the issue.

You had 6 I didn't have.

I have 4 on my list as "suspect" that aren't on your list. Do your own diligence on them:

KB3112148; first seen 12/8/15; “more info” link gives error, so this is suspect

KB3118401; first seen 2/28/16; update for Universal C Runtime in Windows 10

KB3139929; hidden as of 031216; this has been discussed on this forum and is confusing.

KB3150513; re-enables the unwanted KB3035583

Thanks for sharing!

KB3112148 is a time zone for some countries I'll never deal with so I didn't install it. I ignore time zone updates anyway unless they are for the U.S.

KB3118401 apparently never came up for me because it isn't installed on my computer. I added it to my list anyway.

KB3139929 was installed on my computer but GWX Control Panel must have blocked the Win 10 ad. I removed it and added it to my list.

KB3150513 wasn't installed on my computer. I added it to my list anyway.
