    I don't see what that KB3021917 has to do with updating windows 10, the article I linked is a little confusing. However, with or without that update you can turn off or on the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program.

    1. In the Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system, start the control panel and click Action Center > Change Action Center settings.

    2. Click Customer Experience Improvement Program settings.
    3. Select No or Yes click Save changes.
    Yea that was or is a sniffer t send telemetry which I didn't mind that 3/10/15 but I forgot all about it until a day or so ago so I removed it,
    That gave M$ a month to sniff

    It would be interesting to know if the sniffer worked while the Customer Experience Improvement Program selection is turned off.

    Of course it will install. I was wanting to know if CEIP is off, would the new update still phone home or would it honor the current CEIP setting?

    That was the update that was making my hard drive thrash when my pc was idle. Took me a few days to work out what was causing it. Haven't had any thrashing since removing it.

    I noticed an update not that clear, about bypassing UAC prompt therefore permitting customized databases installation for applications compatibility.

    Might come to WU one day, is rated important: Update to force a UAC prompt when a customized .sdb file is created in Windows (Kb3045645).

    I just hid 369 and 645, the only updates I`m installing are virus definitions.

    Everyone should have Auto updates turned off by now.

    I don't see anything pertaining to windows 10 with 3020369 & 3045645

    If UAC is disabled via registry, will UAC still pop-up if you install KB3045645 ?

    I have been looking at some of the previous important and non-important updates some are silly but as long as it doesn't pertain to 10 or do something I do not want done or I don't want the item then I will keep installing windows updates. I think people should install the important & other updates as long as it doesn't pertain to windows 10 or do something you & others don't want done or don't want the item (like skype).

    Update to force a UAC prompt when a customized .sdb file is created is a good idea, it should protect people from malicious scripts.
