    Critical updates are probably a must, but does anyone have a list of updates to avoid.

    Like KB971033 that updates activation.
    I believe some recent updates also added telemetry phone home behavior.

    What updates should be avoided for the pirate who worries about privacy?

    Thanks!

    The invasive telemetry is for windows 10. Should always install all windows critical updates. important updates are optional, and if the problem they fix doesn't affect you you can skip them.

    isn't KB971033 actually required to be installed for proper activation now? OR under some circumstances?

    As urie said, ALL updates are ok to install with loader.

    Only with the online genuine validation. I'm not sure 971033 has any other purpose.
