Update KB3102810 - is this one safe? useful?

Hello Updates forum members,

Yesterday I got a notification that the above update, for 64bit systems, labelled optional, is to "resolve issues in Windows," w/o any other info. Does anyone know whether this is safe (i.e. is it Win 10 nagware? Is it MicroSoft spyware? etc?). Has anyone installed it and had it cause problems on their system?

It's not on any of my "bad updates" lists - at least not yet, but I certainly feel better being able to communicate with other alert Win7 users!

Thanks in advance, Patrick

Believe I sent you a list of telemetry KB's and batch file to remove them. Those are the only temetry KB's that I know of.

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:

Thank you wben 353. Yes, you'd sent me a list of the MicroSoft spyware updates.

As always, I appreciate your help.

No problem. Glad to help where I can, and the list is growing every day, little by little. I'm retired with a lot of time on my hands & really enjoy helping others (or in some cases, giving it the old college try)

wben353 -

Just to be clear, are you saying that KB2970228 has telemetry?

Update to support the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble in Windows

Wben353 is it fine for anyone else on Win7 to also run the above batch file if we want to get rid of the spyware and don't want to be "invited" to Win10? Thanx

Yes,

All the KB's are optional, however, some are reporting that KB3035583 is now showing as "Important"

They will reappear with next check for updates, you can research each one, decide if you want/need it, if you don't, right-click update, choose> hide update.

If you wish to inspect the batch file code right-click choose> edit, If you wish to add entries copy a line and insert KB #. Watch you don't remove the ":" between KB and number KB:3035583

Win10 update nagware is KB3035583

If you want to uninstall just that update, click start orb, type cmd, right-click cmd.exe choose>run as administrator, copy & paste:

wusa /uninstall /KB:3035583 /quiet /norestart

You could also delete all but one entry in the batch file, add the KB #, save, close & run it.

Congratulations, you have just created your first batch file. By the way, in notepad, if you choose Save as file type, choose>all, & change suffix .txt to .bat that creates the batch file and the icon will change accordingly. Similarly .vbs changes text file to Visual Basic script for .net, usually microsoft Net framework is already installed & updated on your machine if you install important updates.

You should be able to, not rocket science. Google is your friend, use it.

Just wanted to "Thank" wben353 for the information on M$ KB's that contained "data miners", I thought I had been vigilant and NOT installed any bogus M$ updates but when I went through your list I found 7 I had missed, they are now gone -

Thanks again and hope you will keep all of us updated on any more
