    MS wants to see the W8 series killed off even more than they want to kill W7.

    At least W7 is successful and popular, whereas the W8 series is a total failure.
    The W8 series market performance is worse than Vista's was.
    I'm surprised that they haven't collect up all of the installer discs and buried them in the desert (like the legendary ET game).

    What I was alluding to is that the only way to stop this garbage is to disable WU, which means you may as well be using XP (i.e. no new updates will be available).

    If we are to believe the claims of MS (and others) this means that your PC is likely to trigger a "thermonuclear holocaust" within seconds of connecting it to the Internet.
    You reminded me of the movie called wargames. It also had a sequel as well. No device is 100% secure. Any electronic device is vulnerable.

    I guess it depends on the system really. I'm fortunate that I've never really had an issue with the windows updates.
    I have 6 hidden updates. 2 are the windows install/nagware updates and 4 are the new telemetry updates (which won't get anywhere near my system).
    But I've installed all the rest, including all optional updates and I've never had any issues.

    The new security update which breaks the old safedisc games doesn't affect me as I don't own any discs with DRM on. Most of my games are on Steam/GOG.
    Safedisc was identified as a security risk back in 2007, I'm surprised it's taken them this long to patch it.
    But, I can see how it would annoy people when their games would suddenly stop working.
    Especially when the average user isn't going to go checking out the Microsoft website to see what's causing it.

    Same goes for the Windows 10 nagware... Annoying as hell!
    They could at least add an option to completely dismiss the update from the system tray icon. It wouldn't seem like such a forced update then.
    And auto-downloading the windows 10 installer to people's pc's even when they don't want it is the ultimate annoyance! Bad decision there from MS!!

    It's really very easy to review updates before they download and install :/
    No need to turn off the update system.
    This separates updates nicely :)

    What does KB3083324 do?

    Nobody seems to know. See:

    Don?t check that box! Windows 7 patch KB 3083324 sneaks in | InfoWorld

    However all I can say is that removing KB3083324 along with all updates listed below and force installing KB3075851 after resetting Windows Update Components and running Advanced Disk Cleanup (including Windows Updates Cleanup) solved the high RAM usage issue (by svchost.exe) that many users are reporting when running a windows update check.

    Code:
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3083325 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3083324 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2976978 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3075853 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3065987 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3050265 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3075851 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2902907 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3068708 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3022345 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2952664 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2990214 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3035583 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:971033 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3021917 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3044374 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3075249 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3080149 /quiet /norestart

    Note: I also chose to reinstall KB971033 (in the above list) after everything started working normally.
