    As posted by Daz, and repeated over and over in many various threads:

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/24902-Windows-Loader-Support-and-chat?p=1124797&viewfull=1#post1124797

    But I actually think that this is a good thread to have. As long as you keep it updated.........

    I just did a fresh install of Win7 and didn't install KB2952664 in the first place.

    Recently I am busy helping friends to remove these KB's :)
    I have disabled WU. I watch which KBs the admins of the company where I work are approving via WSUS, then I apply them manually at home. Since it's a research and develop lab I hope they are concerned (corporate privacy) as I am...or even more...:)

    WSUS is the safest way or are there other options?

    In Windows 10 section is very useful thread: "Suggestion: simple batch to remove Windows 10 offer/spam and tracking from Win 7/8" created by JanCerny. Did you see it?

    Do you think KB3075851 should be removed?

    Help please - I need to install windows 7 on an older machine due to driver issues.

    Could you please give me some advice about what updates I should avoid.

    Telemetry & an others that you would advise against - for an old laptop (core 2 duo) - with an ssd.

    I am getting overwhelmed by the multitude of posts and different opinions - I'm seeking some clarity so I can move proceed confidently.

    The best place to start is to not use W7 Update but use the Simplex Pack at the top of this Forum. It includes only the Security Patches so even if it might include a telemetry patch there will be less to remove than using W7 Update

    Actually not all, but MOST of them are excluded from Simplix Pack per OP; http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...tem-Integrate-hotfixes-into-Win7-distribution

    Thanks for your post.

    I accept that MOST are excluded - but in all honesty - i'm hoping there is a solution/path that would allow me to exclude ALL of them instead.

    However - there might be a good reason that all of them were not included in the simplex pack - can anybody shed some light on why this might be please?
