    me too, but when Micro$h4ft gives vague statements claiming to fix problems with no mention of what problems it will fix, and not finding anything that proves it doesn't contain telemetry, I am personally not installing it for now.

    I will keep researching more.

    Same here, don't have the KB it supposedly fixes either. My concern again is at some point they will sneak in that addendum to the EULA.

    According to this page, it says that this KB3092627 which we are not 100% sure if it's clean from Telemetry is supposed to fix their previous mess created by KB3076895. Since I cannot find any proof that it contains telemetry, do you think I should remove it from the list of updates to avoid? Can you help me here with some research about this before I remove it from the list to be 100% sure.

    I do have KB3076895 installed BTW so maybe I should install it. I am lost man. I need your help.

    I would say it should be patched till proven otherwise. It seems this is a fix for IE and some AV products on some machines, Vista especially.

    @hmscott @Mr. Fox @toughasnails @TANWare @octiceps @Papusan

    Guys, I just added 3 new updates to the list after doing a long research.

    Additionally, I added a new telemetry which is Disk Data Diagnostics task that is in Task Scheduler with illustrations on how to disable it.

    Finally, I added instructions on how to create a VB Script to hide these updates forever. Let's say you just did a clean install of Windows 7, going through this list and checking to ensure these updates are not selected can get very tedious considering the amount of updates we have to hide, thus, this script will hide them bad updates from the start so you never see them.

    It is vital that you check the OP to ensure none of the updated updates are running on your system or simply copy/paste the removal commands I have in the OP instead of wasting your time going through that huge list of updates, it should uninstall them all.

    The "bullet" before the wasu command can get removed, so it can run.

    After doing all the uninstalls, I did a Check for updates, and this new one came up:

    KB3083325

    Google has nothing for it, zero...

    Windows Update Client for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: September 2015
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3083325

    It doesn't say what it is doing, but touches Windows Update files...

    I am not installing it for now.

    The Redmond Nazis are going to stop at nothing to get their cancer on as many systems as possible.
