We're thinking it might be malicious because MS lost the tiny bit of trust we still had in them by adding telemetry to their updates.
Yep, even using a brute force tactic, I can't seem to get it to move to the Optional sector, so I just hid it again.

Microsoft has revised support KB article 4493132 yesterday April 4 with this notice-


Quote:
Note for organizations

This update is not applicable for devices in managed organizations. More specifically, this update will not install on devices running Professional and Enterprise editions of Windows 7 as well as Windows Server products. We recognize that organizations typically have an IT Pro managing system configuration and Windows 10 deployments. It is important for organizations to shift to Windows 10 ahead of January 2020 – organizations can go here to learn more.

I wish to comment on that notice--It is NOT important to move to Win 10.

and it looks like Microsoft plans to "extend" the EOL notifications to those running Windows 7 Professional edition if those Win7 Pro machines are not connected or joined to a domain.

I'm wondering if it might be prudent to stay off of the Internet on a Windows 7 installation around the time of Windows 7's end of life.

I worry about whether or not Microsoft will try to pull something. Perhaps it might be better for me to use TinyCore to access the Web at around that time.

Just wondering if anyone else has thought about this.

I don't think that they will try to pull something on 7, except nags. BTW it's end of support not end of life.
