I normally disable as many of these tracking and telemetry functions as possible, and in some cases that means preventing some updates from installing and/or uninstalling some that may have slipped by. I would indeed remove the updates mentioned in that first link. Scott.

I believe those MS updates would be "safe", but not necessarily desirable. For my own systems I get driver updates (e.g. Lenovo PM device) from the system or device mfr. For the other updates it would depend on exactly what they were.

I'm always researching PC hardware, which is another way of saying that I'm always working on the next edition of URPCs! Scott.
