    I downloaded the following updates and used dism /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath=" " to update.

    windows10.0-kb5007401-x64_f1bf61d834bb8d9951c7efa23454643daae195b0.cab

    windows10.0-kb5033372-x64_822cb06e298fd32637584b623f2cdaa3468f42a1.msu

    I let Windows update drivers automatically and then I install newer drivers such as sound and display manually.

    You have to extract the cabs from the msu first then add them
    The only package you need is windows10.0-kb5033372-x64_822cb06e298fd32637584b623f2cdaa3468f42a1.msu --- extract the SSU and LCU
    and the latest NET Framework 3.5,4.8 and 4.81 (ndp48)

    You will also need to download the latest drivers and install/update manually

    Do you mean only the following?

    SSU-19041.3745-x64.cab
    Windows10.0-KB5033372-x64.cab

    NDP481 Base
    Windows10.0-KB5011048-x64.cab

    NDP35-481 CU
    Windows10.0-KB5032005-x64-NDP481.cab

    Critical DU for .NET35
    Windows10.0-kb5007401-x64_f1bf61d834bb8d9951c7efa23454643daae195b0.cab

    What about other updates listed below?

    I only install SSU, LCU and NDP35-481 CU
    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...emetry-repository.63874/page-104#post-1817980

    I add NDP481 Base offline when disabling Telemetry --- So add NDP481 Base first before updating with NDP35-481 CU
    I disable all Windows Features (that incudes .NET35) so I cannot confirm Critical DU for .NET35

    How to test that telemetry is disabled after running the script? And how to minimize telemetry in Windows 11 if I it can not be disabled?

    If you really have to, you can go through the script and check your OS's (Registry, Scheduled Tasks, Services, Apps, etc ) to see if they were disabled
    I also configure my Firewall to "Allow ony application traffic" and to "Prompt before allowing application traffic". This way I can block any outgoing Windows processes (or any application)

    Any reason to use that particular firewall? I am asking if there is a way to check that the OS no longer tries to connect to telemetry IP addresses? Are you aware of an online script to minimize if not disable telemetry in Windows 11?

    Symantec is the best one I've used so far. Very thorough and user friendly.
    The Firewall has the option to not allow IP traffic and you have control over which applications access the Internet.
    I've tried too many apps and scripts to disable telemetry but they're not as thorough
    Disabling telemetry online is limited because some processes cannot be disabled
    If I am to disable telemetry thoroughly (as feasible) it has to be done offline

    Is there a tool to automatically get rid of all unwanted things and run the commands for you?

    Ιf not thoroughly disabling telemetry offline, would you recommend running any app or script online? What about using simplewall as firewall?

    I haven't used simplewall so I don't know... it looks complcated to me
    But if you know how to configure it to block Telemetry...
    I prefer Symantec (SEP) because you can simply configure it to block all outgoing connections until you allow it
    Even with Telemetry disabled (using my script), Windows still phones home so I use both (disable Telemetry and Firewall)

    Simplewall has a blocklist to block Microsoft spying and telemetry, update and applications, but I don't know if this is really effective.

    Is telemetry in Enterprise 10 and Enterprise LTSC 10 in comparison the same? What about telemetry in Enterprise 11 and Enterprise LTSC 10? Is there any evidence if this is the same? Is there a reason to choose Enterprise LTSC 10 instead of Enterprise 10 or 11 because of telemetry?

    if you compare disable_telemetry script for the different editions of Windows 10 and 11 you'll see they're more or less the same
    just a few differences in what is disabled
    i.e. it doesn't remove and disable (store) all provisioned appx packages & smartscreen for store and onedrive in LTSC because it's not present in the OS

    Isn't Windows 11 sending more telemetry data than Windows 10? If this is the case, shouldn't the scripts be different? And does LTSC send the same telemetry data as other Windows 10 editions?

    None that I am aware of except Windows 11 has CoPilot which they're introducing into Windows 10.
    If you know any more telemetry Windows 11 has that's not in Windows 10 let us know
    Afaik the main difference between LTSC and other Enterprise editions are Store (provisioned appx packages) and OneDrive which my script removes/disables
    We really do not know every Telemetry that is collected and sent to Microsoft we just do the best we feasibly can

    Should any of the Windows executables be blocked from accessing the Internet? What about Office executables? Are any of these known to be sending telemetry?
