You have to or at least I do have to wonder why an optional/ recommended update might concern someone so much ?

All I'm interested in are Important updates
I could care a less how long the optional updates list is or gets
If I have a specific issue I might look at them and see if any address that issue.

I've just installed all the optional updates. Except for the republished KB2952664 which I'm guessing will eventually switch to a recommended again. Oh and Silverlight updates. I don't even have that installed on my pc anymore but they still appear in the list. Once Office 2007 reaches EOL I'll be able to remove the option to show all those.
Maybe I've just been lucky but no update has ever caused me any issues on my pc. Except the above mentioned telemetry update which my hard drive didn't particularly like.
I know others haven't been as lucky with the updates though.

Read this interesting piece of news today. I wonder how its going to play out.

Microsoft stops automatic Windows 10 upgrades, says default checked update was 'a mistake' | VentureBeat | Apps | by Emil Protalinski

EDIT: I love how they play it off like it was an 'accident'.

Spot on Lady F! I find it very hard to believe that was an "accident". They're only saying that because there has been a backlash about it. The way they're pushing 10 lately it hardly seems likely. They're determined to force this thing on as many pc's as they can. Pity they won't stop the forced downloads altogether, but that's unlikely.

The optional update disappeared out my list today. Expecting a recommended to boomerang it's way back anytime soon.

These are the two newest ones Ive seen that should definitely be avoided: KB3083710 & KB3083324. Cheers

Just updated my Gateway PC and wife's Dell Laptop. They continue to try and sneak KB3035583 on to the Dell, but seem to have given up on me (maybe they're read some of these posts). But they did try to sneak KB2952664 by me. I'm thinking of not updating my music PC at all at this point, just keeping it off-line. It works nice, why mess it up? I could use it like that until 2020, and then beyond. But I'm banking on being able to use Linux by then for music. I use it for almost everything else now as it is. I'm just logging on to Windows 7 to update it! Kind of silly... But that's how I'm dealing with it. I guess I'm hoping that eventually, MS will pull back, after sufficient outcry. Or lawsuits.
