    Have you been bit flipped ?
    Don't know what exactly is meant by that.
    The explanation was in the linked article in the post you quoted (868). Had to do with the fact that if you "reserved" a copy of Win 10 at some point, "a bit was flipped" and regardless of WU settings, those machines were going to download and install Win10.

    Yes I read the article but I didn't know if it meant having reserved the win 10 copy (which I did) or the solutions proposed (registry changes)
    The last thing I did (uninstalling and hiding all the Updates mentioned in my list) was to change
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
    "AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
    to

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
    "AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000000



    This solved the problem at the moment.
    Just received the new patches. None of the old hidden returned.


    They all look OK - except maybe KB3135445

    The description is

    This article describes an update that contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This update has a prerequisite.
    The description is ambiguous - prerequisite meaning "something that's "required before." - I fear this will again start Windows 10 upgrade proposal.
    Will wait what the others have to say about it.

    Color me cynical... but I'm hiding 3123862

    KB 3123862 eerily resembles Microsoft's earlier Get Windows 10 patch | InfoWorld

    No need to hide it
    It should be in the Optional section so just focus on the Important section and still research them

    Solid point... FYI it's now been reclassified as "Recommended"

    Anybody any idea about 3145445?
    I did not install it but Windows Update was much slower than before.
    Will wait a few days and install it

    I installed KB3135445 on the 4th. No "undesirable" results so far. I assumed it was OK as it's also targeted at Server 2008 which is not a Win10 candidate.

    I was just wondering if anyone else noticed that Windows Update now takes huge amounts of memory, because you cannot install the update that supposedly reduces the memory useage, because that is the exact same update that gives you Windows 10. This one:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3050265

    The datastore.edb file is now a whopping great 950MB...has anyone else got this same problem? I manage a lot of friends and family machines and have definitely noticed that it will take them ages to check for Windows updates, because they have a much slower machine and it takes ages to load that datastore.edb file into memory and for the process to run properly.

    My personal list of updates that I am avoiding are as follows:

    2592687
    2923545
    2952664
    2970228
    2985461

    3050265
    3054476
    3065987
    3068708
    3075249
    3075851
    3077715
    3080079

    That's why I install all the Windows update client updates. Not only was it taking hours to scan it was using up to 2GB of memory. Now it takes virtually no time and maxes out at around 200mb.
    The latest is KB3135445 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3135445

    As you have home premium you could block it using GWX control panel. Works a treat!

    I found these two in another list of updates to avoid posted on a different forum:

    KB3093513 - MS15-109: Description of the security update for Windows Shell: October 13, 2015
    KB3042058 - Microsoft security advisory: Update to default cipher suite priority order: May 12, 2015

    Can anyone verify if they should be avoided or not please ?

    Also when I checked WU yesterday there was quite a few new security updates that seemed to be harmless enough, however what with me being paranoid now which one's should I avoid if any ?
