According to M$ on Kb3102810

Issues that are fixed in this update


Issue 1

When you install updates by using System Center Configuration Manager, the installation takes a long time, and System Center Configuration Manager becomes overloaded.Issue 2

The Svchost.exe process occupies 100 percent of CPU usage when you upgrade a Windows Update client to Windows 10.

Being an Optional update, if your paranoid about spyware, hide the update until more info is available.

If I didn't sent you the list I have, and the Batch file to remove them here you go:

KB3035583
KB3050265
KB3065987
KB3068708
KB3075249
KB3080149

Late to the train here, but when I googled the first two on your list of "telemetry KBs*" I didn't find any suggestions that they were "phoning home". Can you please provide links that document this behavior for each of those updates?

APOSTROPHISED. There is a verb that I don't think I've seen before.

And you are making your point by (intentionally?) apostrophising plurals?

You are correct. Many of these lists of KBs to be avoided exclude justifications for each KB. There are some lists around that provide a rationale for exclusion and a link to further reading for each KB... but I don't fear the telemetry, so I've not bookmarked the lists. Happy hunting.

We Grammar Nazi's like to verbize nouns from time to time.

And KB3102810 is now shown on the "Important" list, which seems somewhat suspicious if it is
simply a 100% cpu bugfix.

("give me recommended updates the same way as important updates" is disabled).

This one is for Wben 353 to have a look ( perhaps you seen it already )

I stumbled across it and don't understand but maybe it's interesting ?How to stop Microsoft from gathering telemetry data from Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 - Super User
