Windows 7: Which Windows 7 updates by name/number are adding Windows 10?

Which Windows 7 updates by name/number are adding Windows 10?

I can't find the other thread here but it includes help from a PhD student who is aware of the issue where Microsoft is downloading and attempting to install Windows 10 on Windows 7 and 8 machines through Windows Update on Patch Tuesday without the user's knowledge or consent.

This issue has also been reported on by the Inquirer. I had to buy a new computer with Windows 8.1 in order to work as this issue stopped my Windows 7 computer for the time being. I started using Windows 8.1 only to find the same issue. This time I was able to resolve it.

What I need is a connection to this PhD student who posted on the other thread or to anyone else who has a list of each of the specific Windows 7 updates so far that I should avoid when I get my previous system back up in order to avoid repeating the same issue with Windows 10 sneaking on my system.

I'm sure this issue hasn't escaped the notice of many users by now. Can anyone with knowledge of this issue and its solutions assist?

Here's one list. Not necessarily complete and not necessarily sufficient.

2990214 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparation)
3021917 (Windows 10 Upgrade preparation + Telemetry)
3022345 (Telemetry); may affect System File Checker
3035583 (Windows 10 upgrade preparation)
3050265 (a June 2015 replacement for 2990214)
3065987 (a July 2015 replacement for 2990214); may be OK as it might allow a way to block other Win 10 related KBs.
3068708 (Telemetry) (a later replacement for 3022345)
3075249 (Telemetry); first seen 8/19/15
