Here's a post that just came in about Windows Updates, W10 upgrade, etc.
March updates on W7

I'm on Win 8.1 right now and see i have 23 new updates published on 2016-03-15
That's the 3rd Tuesday of the month, so they aren't PT updates

At the very least I would avoid KB3035583. There are other updates that are related to W10, as mentioned in David's reference in another thread, but the KB3035583 is the main culprit that causes a lot of headaches for users that don't want to upgrade to W10.

So far, I only have two KB's that are not installed: KB3035583 and KB2952664. However, I'm not sure if KB2952664 plays that big a part in W10 as KB3035583.

You would have to periodically check what others have to say about updates, issues, etc.

What you really should do is keep periodic System Backup Images using a program such as Macrium Reflect (free).
Then you could restore the image before the "problem started", including W10 upgrade, bad updates, malware, HD crash, etc.
I'm not worried about a forced W10 upgrade, i can easily back it out with a Image restore.
