KB971033 was on my list because it was listed as a privacy issue on another forum. However I realized that this one does need to be installed. As stated - KB971033 was reinstalled following removal. I was just describing the updates that I ensured were removed along with KB3083324 at the time of removal.

Briefly - KB3083324 was removed along with any others that were in the list. KB3075851 was then force installed. KB971033 was then installed.

KB971033 I haven't had an issues with this not being installed. When you do a clean install on my system windows update will not install KB971033. There is a fix by removing one of the updates, it will allow you to install KB971033. Once installed, that update either comes back or it doesn't depending on what you have installed. It is in one of my old post on how I did it. Noel old post actually helped my find the update that prevented KB971033 from installing.

Nobody seems to know. See:

Those are the monthly "Windows update client" updates.
My guess is there will be a new one of these every month as MS receives telemetry on the failed 10 updates (when done through Windows update). Seems like an ongoing improvement with these.

My understanding of KB971033.

It is what Microsoft uses to check every so often if Windows 7 is properly activated. It's been around for ever. If a system is properly activated you won't even know KB971033 is on your system.

This is my first post.
Just for the record, I had KB971033 hidden, not anymore it installed itself without my input. My Windows 7 update setting are to let me choose which updates to install.
No point of uninstall and hide it again I guess, as it will reinstall itself unsolicited at some stage.

As all the members here on this forum would say, Hello and welcome.
A special hello to a new Ozy.
The KB's come in under a different importance level as offered the first time.
This gives the impression they have sneaked in.
I have hidden some KB's 3 times.
You need to select "let me choose to download and install"
You just need to keep a list and be vigilant.

Didn't you know, its a new game that M$ are putting together.

Welcome ceasar51. As it's your first post, you will have to go through the initiation ceremony.

Thrashzone.... bring out the butter and the rabid leopard!

Anyway, here's my updated list of exclusions (I like to keep my list light):
