Apparently if your computer is not part of a domain and you open a new tab in IE with this update installed there may be an advertisement for upgrading to Windows 10.
Sigh.
Makes one reconsider running unpatched. this is getting ridiculous.

Default Re: Win7 updates for upgrading to Win10

I only read the first page of this post here so someone might have already suggested this. I just wanted to point out a free program that a friend of mine tried and highly suggests it for people who do not want Windows 10. I personally haven't used it but I found it for him.

http://ultimateoutsider.com/download...PanelSetup.exe (setup program)
http://ultimateoutsider.com/download...trol_panel.exe (standalone version)
http://blog.ultimateoutsider.com/201...ly-remove.html (Info on the program)

It removes the Get Windows 10 icon from the system tray, deletes 10 if it's already been downloaded (but not installed), etc. There's also an option to undo the changes if you decide you might later want it.

I just wanted to let you guys know about this program incase you wanted a simple one-click method. As of right now, it does not block or remove any of the "telemetry" features, although it might become an option later on. It works on 7 and 8.

Updated the OP with: KB3161647 Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: June 2016

Quote:
This update contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This includes the following:
An optimization that addresses long scan time for updates that's reported on some computers.
Fix for a Windows Update error 0x8007000E on some computers while they are updating.
Some reliability improvements.
It's included in the June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (KB3161608) linked within that article.

IIRC you don't need to any more as the 1 year free upgrade period expired and apparently the upgrade nagware expired too.

Digital river also had Sp1 images of 7... Are you sure you don't have that version?

Not sure how but my optional updates started showing as important on 7 pro. A few of the updates were on the list tied to 10.

According to my setupact.log file in C:\Windows\Panther :

2013-04-21 19:57:26, Info [0x0601ce] IBS Setup has started phase 2 at 2013-04-21 19:57:26

And I've never turned on Windows Update since then. Seems to be working fine for me.

BTW for those wanting a legit Windows 7 ISO you may want to get it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...nload/windows7

The catch though is you need a valid Windows 7 product key. Retail. NOT OEM.

Wohoo, my Win7 company laptop saw this update yesterday:
Quote:
About this update
This update removes the Get Windows 10 app and other software related to the Windows 10 free upgrade offer that expired on July 29, 2016.
The update actually removes more stuff than what is listed in my OP.
It seems those updates were for OEM's to integrate on customers laptops.
It even removes the shady IE update component KB3146449 which I mentioned here that was part of security update KB3139929

Lol, gotta love Microsoft for that: first they make a ton of "updates" to force Windows 10 onto people, now they make an "update" to remove those "updates".
... more pointless than a dog chasing its own tail.

I'm glad I skipped all of that by disabling updates on the (very few) Windows 7 PCs I maintain.

ah, but did it *only* remove stuff???
a byte changed here, a byte changed there,
and before you know it, something slows down or randomly breaks.

and the solution offered - get win10!
