Windows 7: How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8

There's a lot that could easily be skipped. I personally don't skip the Windows update client updates as they've been beneficial to my system and they don't seem to do anything when installed alone.
My Windows update has seen a vast improvement in scan times and a massive reduction in Memory and CPU usage when scanning. I haven't experienced anything being downloaded on any of my systems or numerous VM's with just the update clients installed. They seem to need telemetry updates installed alongside before they will even download anything.
Of course, if people are airing on the side of caution and windows update is working fine then I would avoid them.
But my Windows updates were running like a pig before I installed those updates
You'll especially notice the difference on a new VM, I've had to wait 8+ hours for windows update to pick up all the updates. With the latest WU client they are all picked up within 5 - 20 minutes.

I've seen no ill effects without any of them
Of course I do not manually check for updates either
They just appear as they always have

Windows update cleanup usually makes a few reappear but that's about it.

I do not load the Optional section at all
Only Important and now I do research and wait a little before doing them at least a week.
kb3112343 is really the only Important update I've had to hide
I doubt it will be the last if M$ keeps adding win-10 stuff to them.

Windows updates are a real strange beast lately. For some they're running fine, for others they are running really slow. Unfortunately, I was one of the people affected with the slow updates annoyance. Not sure what MS has done, maybe some server changes since Windows 10 release perhaps? Noticed a lot of people complaining about slow updates lately.
Wouldn't put it past MS to cripple them. Don't think Windows 8 has suffered with the slow updates either.

I'm sure you've heard the expression
In for a penny = in for a pound

That essentially means you let one load your stuck needing all of them
Updates do not nor have they ever uninstalled well
Then again nothing in windows really uninstalls well.

I am having the same issue with my windows 32 bit install. What might work is do the full windows update reset bat listed on this forum. Import the do not upgrade to 10 registry key file listed on this forum, reboot. Downloading KB3135445 from Microsoft, install it, reboot run windows update if needed. Install updates.

Is this the general opinion of others?

Two of them were; I don't remember what the third one was.
I have never paid attention to the Update Numbers until just recently. The last 40 or so updates on my PC
have the same number KB2310138. What is up with that?

Those who reserved the upgrade way back, but never received it, get it first. It will be BITS that will locate these PCs, so there will be no windows update presented. Maybe that is why you have seen nothing to date from WU. The files will just arrive and a reboot will install it.
Now, that is a little concerning if Bits can really do that.
