KB3102810 has value; especially for those starting with a clean/fresh install of W7 or a factory reset. Please see this post. There are other treads that show KB3102810 drastically shorten the Windows Update scan time and solved high CPU usage while scanning for W7 updates and while installing W7 updates.

If the goal is to have a W7 installation that cannot install W10, then avoid KB3102810 and its benefit to W7.

Completely agree with UNI.
I've been installing the Windows update client updates as I've actually found them beneficial to my system. They've decreased RAM and CPU usage and that one in particular has resolved the long scan times on my VM installs. I installed that update before running WU for the first time.
What was taking hours has been drastically shortened, the last one took 20 minutes to pick up all the updates.
The only downside to this is that it does include the Windows 10 downloader/prep.
I've still included it on my list, which I'll update soon (as I've also discovered a couple new Windows 8.1 updates), for anyone who wants to completely skip all the WU client updates. But for me it's been a benefit, so I install them.
As long as you have updates set to check only and untick the "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important" then there shouldn't be any issues with it auto installing.
As an extra precaution, use the group policy object or reg workaround.
My advice, if people (especially on new installs) want to reduce the painfully long wait for updates, and are happy using the workaround, then I would install it.
If you want to completely avoid anything to do with 10 and don't want to use workarounds, but can put up with the long wait times on new installs then skip all the WU client updates.

jadinolf, my apologies to Her Ladyship, who probably doesn't give a hoot!

morph000, as I once said to my (ex-Pom) NSW mate from childhood, why are you colonials such devotees of Conspiracy Theory?
Conspiracy Theory is one thing, FACTS and reality another.

I have no intention of making it personal in this forum, but it's clear you have no serious understanding of what's happening in the world or how what is happening now is just 7,000 years of human history repeating itself. I'd say you spend no time at all in the top financial forums, sites and blogs out there.
I spend an average of 2 hours a day on them and have since the GFC and have saved EVERY article, video and document of interest since then. I CHOSE to be informed and do whatever I can to protect my future.
I'd be happy to debate any and all areas you choose to, from the big lie of global warming to socio-political and economic history, predictive cycles, human nature, terrorism, false-flags etc.
So pick your forum and let me know


Here's some light reading for you before that:
Quotes About Denial (318 quotes)




Anyway, back onto topic - does anyone have any input on M$ Office updates as far as spying and telemetry goes? I see them as a significant risk too.

Ok so should I decide to install this one to help with ram/cpu issues, what are the group policy object and reg workaround you mentioned? Thanks

It's an Important update so yes it should be installed.

Which version of Windows do you have? Group Policy is only available in Pro and above. Both workarounds have been posted in here a few pages back.

Without reading all 54 pages, is the initial post being updated so that one can see the complete lists of KBs that are associated with the guerrilla install of Win 10 . It seems MS is making it as difficult as possible, moving it from optional to recommended, increasing scan times if you "just say no" and it also keeps changing my setting from "check for updates but let me choose" to "never check".

As of this post, the initial post was last updated in May:

There is no authoritative list of "W10 updates" - just various options.

Some people continue to install updates to the Windows Update Client to solve issues like long scan times and to make use of various settings to prevent W10's installation.

I had my W7 machine pretty much protected against W10 for about the last month. Now, MS is back with a vengeance, just want them to leave my W7 alone until they no longer support it. I have 3 W10 machines in the house...don't want/need a 4th.!!
