This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. These diagnostics help determine whether compatibility issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed. This update will help Microsoft and its partners ensure compatibility for customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system.

The description is the same as its always been. And that update has been reissued numerous times now. I think it's on version 25 now, so each time it gets reissued it will show up again, even if you hide it.

This is why I don't bother to hide it anymore. I just leave it in the optional section along with many others.
KB2952664 is like a turd that won't flush, just keeps on popping up.

After KB2952664 listed as optional update, today i'm received another one, KB3177467, "Servicing stack update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1: September 20, 2016", what is going on Microsoft?

I noticed that and hid it although I don't think this is another attempt to force W10 on us.

Hi,
KB3177467 never showed up for me
Wonder if that was dependent on if KB3179573 was installed or not
Which I didn't install that one.

Hi. I had KB3179573 installed on 29th September 2016. KB3177467 doesn't show up in optional updates. Installed it anyway. Prerequisite is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. (KB976932)

Checked the files that are supposed to be replaced but none of them have actually been replaced. Example from file list here:

New KB3184143 Update to Remove Windows 10 Upgrade Offer-servicing-stack-updates.jpg
Well I can see that the file hasn't changed since 2010 although the updated versions are present in WINSXS.

Same goes for the other files in the list.

Seems to be the same issue as here where I checked more than one machine.

It's more like a snake that comes up and bites you on the <your choice of body part here>. I took the free update some time ago and have had nothing but trouble with privacy, insistence on linking my computer(s) with a Microsoft account, etc. It began with bricking my main computer because it changed the locking screen password to the Microsoft account password, which I had stored on that computer... (I got that resolved by resetting the Microsoft account password on another computer). There have been many other hassles due to intrusion on privacy or whatever. It continues today with a "feature update" that insists that Windows Defender run in real time etc. even though I have Norton Security installed and running. I found that even after shutting off Defender that the CPU is still running about 20% usage (and making my fan whir away noisily). Task manager says it's Acronis, but Acronis doesn't say it's doing anything.

If I could go back to Windows 7 I would do so in a heartbeat. As it is, I'm considering moving to Linux. I have another 8-core machine running Linux on the KVM and, other than application compatibility issues, the main thing I would miss are Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver. Adobe seems to be very much committed to making you rent their software, so I will likely find alternatives on Windows, so that's not an anchor.
