I'm still debating whether to install this update or not. I have a list of telemetry updates to avoid. If I install this update, will the individual telemetry updates be listed - and therefore I can uninstall them - or does it mean the telemetry patches will be "hidden" within this one update.

I note MS are saying it will speed up downloading and installing updates but I haven't had any recent problems.

Hi,
Nope you can not uninstall individual updates in a rollup.
It's an Optional update so it can be ignored.

Thanks ThrashZone. I think I'm going to do just that, ignore it. I'll add it to the list of updates to avoid if there is the possibility of it containing telemetry. On a side note, it's a pretty calculating way of getting telemetry into a computer under the guise of a seemingly innocent single update.

Thanks again.
