Recommended update

It looks like the primary offending update KB 3068708 is a Recommended update. I've always unchecked the "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" option in Windows Update since most of those updates tend to only hold some nice to have patch for some obscure HDD running on some other more obscure Motherboard. Great if you have that HDD and MB but I've never found anything in there of use.

That could all change if MS decide that updated spying^H^H^H customer experience telemetery is now an Important update...

Trying to out Google Google - I can only see that working as well as it did when they tried to out Apple Apple (Zune anyone?)
