Posted those 2 a few weeks ago thrash. Those were optional but they came back as recommended (as I said they would).

Hidden again! Nice try Microsoft!

I know what you mean about no longer hiding them. It's starting to make me want to completely turn off Windows Update.

If it wasn't for so many security updates, I wouldn't even use it.

Shouldn't MS provide some sort of a link to turn off the W10 upgrade when users of W7/8 change their mind. Sort of an OPT IN/OUT?

Top thread of windows 10 to 7 updates to avoid

Thanks to all who posted the updates in this thread, related to this windows 10 updates rubbish in 7.

I thought I stopped most of them but found I had a least three of them and now uninstalled them. They were installed months ago, before all this windows 10 kicked off.

Microsoft are sly at tricking people into installing these updates when they do nothing for windows 7, other than spy on us. I will never upgrade to windows 10 and windows 10 is an abuse of privacy. I don't want the spy stuff or windows 10 nonsense in my windows 7.

Need to keep it updated so we can all avoid the worst or Microsoft windows 10 to 7 spying updates. Plenty around the web about it but not all the updates are shown, that we don't want.

Most of the time zone updates did not effect any in the u.s. so some passed on possible issues with office outlook for time zones which do not apply to them,

Agreed, hiding updates is like fighting windmills and just like Don Quixote de la Mancha, we still do it

The "Important/recommended" updates can't even be used as guidance anymore. Some of the security update requires optional update to fix the security update caused problems. I haven't noticed this on W7, but did on W8.1; quote from the optional KB3092627:

Quote:
This article describes an issue in which programs or Windows may freeze after you install security update 3076895
One would really need to dig deep to see what the referenced non-security update does and if it is necessary for the system.

Seeing that MS keeps at pushing out updates for prior versions of Windows, that includes compatibility and telemetry patches, it must be important for them. Microsoft wouldn't spend money on developing patches that does not result in a positive ROI on the long run. To put it in perspective...

A month after the release of Windows 10 RTM, it's market share is 5.21%, or about 75 million computers. The majority of them were updates and for simplicity sake, let's go with this number. Traditionally, each update used cost about $100 that translates into $7.5B lost income for the free updates. If anyone believes that a corporation would give away this kind of money, I have a bridge to sell you...

Some, such as the Russian time zone update, actually did cause problems for some computers. since I'm as likely to be computing in Russia as on the moon, there was no need for me to download that update and risk running into problems.

I disagree and feel the tilting at windmills analogy is invalid. Most of the spyware and nagware updates, once blocked, stay blocked. It's only a few of the ones I've put on my Specialized High Intensity Training list that have been repeated and most of them were repeated only a few times so blocking them was not futile. And, even I have to keep rejecting the blasted things, I will continue to do so. It's sheeple who roll over and take MSpy's abuse of power that gives them the justification to keep doing so.
