Updates to hide to prevent Windows 10 Upgrade / Disable Telemetry - AnandTech Forums
That list seems a little OTT if you ask me. They're referencing updates which have nothing to do with Windows 10.
One example is the update which fixes a memory leak in DWM. This clearly has nothing to do with Windows 10.
Some articles seem a little extreme to me. The next thing we'll get is articles telling people not to install Security Updates, which is a bad idea.
Well it is helpful for some just like it was for me and the title does say "Windows 10 Upgrade / Disable Telemetry" so its not being forced just letting ppl know if one thinks its not helpful then they do not need to use it.

I use the all in one batch file to uninstall from: https://gist.github.com/xvitaly/eafa75ed2cb79b3bd4e9 instead of having to uninstall one at a time.

Might be overkill but you can easily edit the batch. Also instead of disable the update OS in group policy, I just disable treat recommend updates as important updates in windows update settings.

What does one think about this KB3083710 update? I guess I will be the guinea pig and test it.

I hid that one; the description was much too vague for my tastes.

I have those WU client updates all installed Groze. Windows update client updates that deal with downloading and installing 10 through Windows update. The gpedit or reg workarounds will block the download anyway. The files listed in the update are files that already exist on your pc except for 3 new ones which deal with the download and put the windows 10 offer screen in WU.
I just installed them as I got sick of my list expanding every month.
Anyway, haven't had anything 10 downloaded or offered.

Yep optional section for me,
Is Windows update (KB3083710) Win 10 or tracking related?

The updates getting on my nerves are KB2952664 and KB3035583. I now have two of each in my hidden updates. Usually when a new one gets published it just replaces the old one. Hasn't happened this time.
Wonder how many more of these we'll get?
