    Searching list of KB.. (telemetry) updates which are not recommended


    Sometimes MS tries to propagate dubious "updates" whose core task are "telemetry" data collection.

    The following article shows one of such updates which are not essentially necessary for running Win10:

    KB5001391 is another Windows update that you should not install, except.. - gHacks Tech News

    I remember that I have seen a list of such spy updates but can't remember where.

    Does someone here know such a not-recommended-to-install list of KBxxxxxxxx-updates?

    Whyever do you deem that a 'spy' update?

    Consider: MS tries to protect PCs it deems unsuitable for receiving upgrades from those using its 'Safeguard' approach.
    How do you think it collects data on issues arising during its upgrades? Telemetry. Quality processes require feedback. Feedback requires data.

    Do you think MS wants copies of your private photos or is trying to hack your bank account?
