    have had updates off and tried a manual update that seemed to run forever, would like to get updated soon, last update was 7/2015, is there a list of the updates to remove/or disable that has telemetry in them before I run the update fix kb172614 ?

    Here are a few lists. Most of the updates overlap but some groups are more conservative than others and elect to block/uninstall more updates.

    (I'm sorry I had to add spaces to be able to post the links since my post count is low.)

    Also, if you don't want to install the entire KB3172614 rollup abbodi1406 has extracted just the component that patches windows update. See his post here:
