Thanks to the three of you who replied. I will try installing one at a time and see if I can catch it.

I updated my three W7 machines last night. Here's what I do these days: I look at the threads here for tips on what to avoid. I then manually run WU (I have it set to "Never check for updates."). It takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to get the updates, depending on which machine I'm updating. Then I install all security updates, Office updates and the malicious tool remover. I have already hidden all the W10 updates. And I also am running the Windows 10 Control Panel (or whatever it's called; I can't check as I'm on Mint at the moment). All updates install, again the time varies with the machine. The computers all work fine, and no trace of W10. I feel confident that I have figured out how to keep W10 off my computers, unless MS really gets tricky.

I am curious if any of you have a PC that you are running Updates and not doing any kind of "inspecting". I was curious if someone were doing that if they had any problems.

Define "problems".

I have dozens of computers that I support (family/friends/acquaintances). They all do automatic updates. I don't cull out telemetry or "W10" updates. I don't see any problems with them.

That was my question, thanks. My laptop does not have any important data on it and I have not been monitoring updates, as I have been with my desktop, and have had no problems with Win 10. I guess what I am wondering about is that if no one has had any ill effects from Win 10, why is everyone monitoring Updates so closely?

Some people fear telemetry - so they try to avoid updates that might send info to MS. For them, setting windows update to automatic is a "problem". That is why I asked for a definition of "problems" :-)

Some people cannot seem to stop the installation of W10. They open up the Windows Update screen and are surprised to see the prompt to install W10. Once that happens, they visit a forum like this one and see list of updates to remove and avoid - so they do both.

Some people use registry settings to tell MS that they do not want W10. For some of those people, those registry settings mysteriously changed to allow W10 to get ready to install. The question is: what app or apps changed those registry settings? My guess is: some security software did it.

At one time I had the Win 10 on my taskbar. I downloaded the GWX Control Panel Ultimate Outsider - Software Downloads It eliminates any Win 10 files and monitors for future ones and gets rid of the Win 10 on the taskbar. Give it a try.
