Microsoft still lists KB3035583 as a critical update.
@ Nameless Faceless Computer User
I don't know which Windows Update you are using, but the version I use lists KB3035583 as a "recommended" update, not a "critical" update.
As far as I know, the list of updates to avoid for Windows 7 users is as follows:
KB971033 - Update to Windows Activation Technologies. Listed as Important.
KB2952664 - Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7. Listed as Recommended
KB2990214 - Update that enables you to upgrade from Windows 7 to a later version of Windows. Listed as Recommended.
KB3035583 - Update installs get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1. Listed as Recommended.
KB3068708 - Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry. Listed as Recommended.
KB3075249 - Update that adds telemetry points to consent.exe in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. Listed as Recommended.
KB3080149 - Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry. Listed as Recommended.
I have also seen KB3102429 mentioned as an update to avoid. A check of the KnowledgeBase says that it is an: Update for central Asian currencies. WTF?
Since my need for (or my customers need for) any thing to do with central Asian currencies is vanishingly small, I avoid it also.
As a matter of fact, there are very few of the "Recommended" updates that I bother to install.
I welcome any advice or commentary that will help improve this list of undesirable updates, and I hope that others will find it useful.
