For August these two would enter the list : KB3080149, KB3075249. No more ?

I'm not asking to be much more just to be sure .P

This is my Win 10 junk update list so far with those two now added at the bottom:

KB3035583 - Win 10 Get Windows APP
KB2990214 - Win 10 upgrade Windows 7 to later version
KB3021917 - Win 10 SP1 Performance Improvements when the latest Windows OS is installed.
KB2952664 - Win 10 x2 Compatibility Update
KB3022345 - Win 10 Replaced by KB3068708 Telemetry
KB3068708 - Win 10 Telemetry
KB3065987 - Win 10 Update Client
KB3075851 - Win 10 fixes mess caused by KB3065987
KB3046480 - Win 10 Whether to migrate the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 to a later version of Windows
KB3050265 - Win 10 Group Policy to block upgrades to latest Windows. 0x8007000E error fix also
KB3080149 - Win 10 ?
KB3075249 - Win 10 ?

Something borked a laptop 2 days ago I reinstalled for a guy, wondering if it was anything to do with the last two... I am considering leaving WU disabled on the next system/s to save me the headaches, it's twice the work when they bring it back after a couple of days all messed again.

KB3080149 updates Customer Experience Improvement Program and telemetry
KB3075249 Update that adds telemetry points to consent.exe in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7

In addition to hiding the updates, I've disabled all Customer Experience Improvement Program settings in Task Scheduler and disabled Remote Registry in Services.

There is a new optional update for Win7 x64, KB3092627, is it a tracker too?

Looks fine to me. Just looks like it's an update for fixing some app crashes.
Can't see any telemetry files in the update.

First question would be do you have any programs freezing ?
I don't so I'll let it sit until I do see one freeze

Seems like it's more geared towards Symantec/IBM products. Although there is mention of MS own software crashing from a previous update too!

So, I went ahead and installed all the Windows Update Client updates:

KB2990214 - Update that enables you to upgrade from Win7 to Win10
KB3050265 - Windows Update Client for Windows 7: June 2015
KB3065987 - Windows Update Client for Windows 7: July 2015
KB3075851 - Windows Update Client for Windows 7: August 2015
KB3083324 - Windows Update Client for Windows 7: September 2015

Have to say, I've noticed a huge improvement on my system when scanning for Windows updates. Big reduction on both CPU and RAM usage when scanning.
These don't seem to cause any ill effects or push any telemetry garbage to your system
The only downside is you have to set Group Policy to disable the 10 update through Windows update.

If you don't have Group Policy editor then use Registry Editor:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
DWORD: DisableOSUpgrade = 1

I would say these updates have been more beneficial to my system though. And it certainly cuts down on the growing list of updates to skip.
