Which windows updates do I avoid on win 7 to avoid windows 10 adware?

Which of these updates do I need to avoid in order to not get the "upgrade to windows 10!!!!" adware installed again? I currently don't have it installed (I had to go through a lot to get it that way) and want to keep my computer adware free. SEE ATTACHED JPEG

Anyone know?

Hello Zooga, :)

If you like, you could just use the tutorial below to disable the "Upgrade to Windows 10" update, and not have to worry about which updates to install or uninstall.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 OEM

Hey Thrash, could you please enlighten me on KB3013531.
Description from M$ is: Update to support copying .mkv files to Windows Phone from a computer that is running Windows.

I always cross reference and compare to my list to add anything I have missed that is all.

Yeah, I don't see how that one is W10 or telemetry related.
