    I have blocked all Windows updates until we find out why they are tampering with our computers, when we are not looking. This looks like some sort of a trick to get as many people as possible to change to Windows 10.
    That's throwing the baby out with the bathwater and would be very dangerous. Uninstall (if you have already installed them) KB2990214, KB3035583, and KB2952664, then hide them when they show up again. The other updates, so far are pretty much safe. To avoid getting stuck with any further problem updates, set Windows Updates to only notify you of pending updates and don't download them for about a week until you are sure there are no problems (I wait until Saturday morning before downloading and installing).

    Thank you dear, for your concern. Are the 3 updates that you have mentioned above, the only ones that are being sneaked in for W 10? I was under the impression that there are many more that Microsoft has sent down for this purpose.

    Actually here is a partial list (Some are just for windows 8/8.1) to get your system read for windows 10.

    KB2990214
    KB3035583
    KB2952664
    KB3021917
    KB2976978
    KB2819745

    I can understand one update to notify you to download windows 10 and check a box saying not interested, why prepare a system for windows 10 if the person is not going to upgrade? Just wait tell they want to install windows 10 if ever.

    Thanks Mike,
    I looked around, but MS is so secretive its difficult to tell how many are out there and for which version.
