Because after SIMPLIX update, I do find some hotfixes listed in dg1261 script and also some listed in Megahertz07 script.

Any updates installed by Simplix will have had the telemetry elements removed.You have got the good parts of those - and the bits you don't want have been removed.




The following updates are undesirable and are excluded:

Thanks SIW2 for providing the list. Some hostfixes listed in your previous post are present in my Simplix updated Windows. I will remove them.

Later I will post what I removed.

Thanks

Is there a full list of all the Bad Updates listed here compiled somewhere? I'm trying to give my PC its first REAL update in years (last time was on late 2016...), and I'm having a bit of a hard time locating all the posts.

Thanks in advance.

My suggestion is to set Services - Windows Update - Manual and on WU page set it to Never check.
Then run UpdatePack7R2
Simplix is a single file (850MB) that contain all updates since Win 7 released up to date. It has all security and non security updates without the trash (telemetry and tracking). Very good.
Then run WU manually to find updates for Office etc and decide witch one to install.

To uninstall the telemetry, run cmd file to uninstall those KB files.
kb_spy.cmd.txt
Rename it as KB_Spy.cmd and run it.
