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.
Uninstalling the updates does,t fix the problem. The list was posted as "WUC clients that have caused problems on my machine" - subsequent WU search slowdowns/ high RAM usage at some point. The fix for me was not as simple as removing those updates.

Most of the posts in your list that didn't appear in mine were for Win 8.1. One or two were for time zone updates; I don't install time zone updates for countries other than the U.S. Most of the remaining few weren't installed on my computer so they probably weren't offered to me.

The first one on my list was a typo and shouldn't have been there. The correct number was in your list.

Yes, I was anal enough to check them all.

The only "recommended" updates I install these days are ones which have specific crashes detailed in the descriptions (e.g. fixing a crash caused by a previous security update). Or if it's adding something which seems beneficial (Windows update plugin in the Disk Cleanup Wizard). Most of the others don't seem relevant to my systems. And a lot of recent ones seem more aimed towards a server environment.

I do install ALL security updates manually.

Yep I believe most of the fun is If the update system actually finds updates the way it supposed too

Installing them has always been another fun experience slightly different than finding them

Oh yea I guess I do have 25 now I haven't loaded the 10 I showed are just what I deem 10 related.
Other 15 are mostly remote desktop.... stuff.
