    There already is some 3rd party tweaks and programs to disable some not all the stuff.

    Yep,
    Not sure if any 1 or all would break 10 and have users refresh install every other day
    Refresh install is a pain undoing everything

    Newpgm, with regards to KB2952664, that's actually now shown up twice in my list of hidden updates. One is classed as Recommended and the other as Optional.
    So, yes it is possible to have that show up more than once.
    I'm creating a new W7 VM (from an existing one) because I need to install Java.

    KB2952664 appeared in the Windows Update Important and Optional lists!

    I just had KB2953664 along with a new update "improver" show up thiss morning. I'm so furious with Micro S**t trying to RAM these updates down my throat, especially KB2953664! The latter has been "offered" to me three or four times in the past month. Can't the clowns take a hint?

    Btw, why would you want a high security risk like Java on your computer?

    It would be better if Microsoft offered a way to permanently hide and not be offered a certain update again. Wishful thinking though.
    MS clearly wants all users of 7/8 to be subjected to the same telemetry/diagnostics that Windows 10 offers, because I've seen some of those files (such as appraiser.dll) also included in Windows 10.

    Keep trying Microsoft... I'll keep hiding your crappy updates!

    Same here. I keep hiding it but it comes back! Guess MS thinks you'll forget you've already rejected it . . .

    I did July's updates yesterday, data cap issues, and the previously hidden KB2953664 showed up again. I now have two KB2953664 updates hidden. One shows as "Recommended" at 6.0 MB and the other "Optional" at 6.1 MB. I don't remember which one I hid first.

    When I checked today I got the "Windows is up to date" - "There are no new updates available for your computer." Perhaps there is hope that it has given up. Only time will tell.

    Doubtful, there's been about 11 versions of that update so far. Expect a new one every month as they continue pushing everyone to move to W10.

    What are the telemetry/diagnostics update old & new that not in the list for windows 7? I would like to get rid of them. Otherwise, I am going to have to do a clean install of windows 7 again.

    I don't want it on my PC (which is why I've copied one of my VMs and installed it on that).

    Since I've finished my Web Design Diploma, I've moved on to Software Development and Java Programming is part of that course.

    That would be the best solution, but if it just downloaded a tool that users could run, when and if they wanted to upgrade, it wouldn't be so annoying.
