    As M$ has ported part of it's spyware/telemetry mechanism to Win7 & win8, and since there are so many different discussions about this subject on the net, I was wondering if someone would shed some light on the issue and help us find and remove the related updates/services from Win8.1.
    I am reluctant to take advise on this matter from other web pages and rather have the final word from this forum which I trust.
    Thanx in advance.

    P.S. I found a thread discussing these updates for Windows 7, but not Win8.1.

    Thanks for the reply. Like I said I was aware of the post, but it is not completely same for 8.1.

    From what I found on the net the followings are telemetry/spyware updates:

    kb:2923545
    kb:2970228
    kb:3035583
    kb:2990214
    kb:3021917
    kb:3068708
    kb:2592687
    kb:2660075
    kb:2506928
    kb:2952664
    kb:3050265
    kb:2726535
    kb:2994023
    kb:3022345
    kb:3022345
    kb:2545698
    kb:3065987
    kb:3075249
    kb:3080149

    I would appreciate further verification.
