    Just a confirmation request, will the telemetry script above allow my Windows 7 Security Updates to proceed normally? They've been failing for about a month now.

    It doesn't not affect update servicing (or fix it)

    Doesn't the "July 9, 2019—KB4507456 (Security-only update)" and "September 10, 2019—KB4516033 (Security-only update)" include telemetry in them? How do you guys bypass that since security-only updates are not cumulative and each security-only updates are needed?

    Install them and disable telemetry

    or just skip them, most fixed components are replaced in the following security-only update
    so it's partial or minimum risk

    How do I do that? By running W10Tel.cmd?


    Skip them? But from what I understand, if you do that you are unable to install subsequent updates since security-only updates are not cumulative? So for example, if you don't install the setember 2019 update, you won't be abl;e to install the october 2019 or november 2019 updates, or am I wrong?

    Can you disable telemetry even with rollups? Or only with security-only updates?

    @KaranoKyoukai

    this thread and W10Tel.cmd is ment for rollups
    and it also apply to security-only updates with telemetry

    @Walcott
    W10Tel.cmd is enough for Win 7/8.1, no need for aggressive blocking
    besides, Win 7/8.1 will not send any telemetry if CEIP is off

    Just a little feedback

    These two should be added
    Also hosts became like this after running the script.

    They are not related to backported Telemetry

    not here
    you could add echo. line
    Code:
    echo.>>%hosts%
    echo 127.0.0.1 query.prod.cms.rt.microsoft.com/cms/api/am/binary/RE2JgkA>>%hosts%
