Update to enable the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows

Hi guys,

Just received today through Windows Update this Kb article:

-Article ID: 3022345 - Last Review: May 5, 2015 - Revision: 3.0
Update to enable the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows.

This update enables the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This tracking service collects data about functional issues in Windows.

This update is available from Windows Update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
(There is no prerequisite for Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.)

It's 27,7Mb in WU, I haven't installed yet on my machine as i didn't saw any files history and waiting that to be displayed.

I just got the notice today also. I'm not really sure what it is tracing so I hide it.

This update might collect datas in the Event Viewer, tracking and recording the hardware errors and System errors. Microsoft already collects data when crash does happen and drivers with WU if we allow it to do so. This one looks automated to me. Did hide this one too.

Windows 7 Pro-x64

With three versions in a row bombing, I suspect MS is trying to shore-up Windows 7 until W11/12.

I'm leaving the update in limbo (not hidden, not installed) until more detail is learned.

Added: This is already in W10-IP and appears to be causing high CPU usage. Some as high as 50% but generally in the 10-30% range.

Diagnostic tracking service
This service got installed on my machine by one of the Windows updates. Now, anything with the word "tracking" does not look attractive to me, so I have it disabled and nothing wrong is happening. Could anyone tell me if there is anything useful - for me - that this service does and that I'm...

Is Windows update (KB3083710) Win 10 or tracking related?
Microsoft's knowledge base article isn't helping me trying to figure how important this is or not , i know it's optional but it it helpful to Win 7 functionality ? Any other (optional ) updates worthy of installing in your opinion that are not Win 10 or tracking related? Thanks
