Don't want to upgrade to Windows 10? You'll download it WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT

It looks like the back porting telemetry patches appear as Recommended updates so you should be safe from these providing you untick "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" in the windows update settings. Do that and you should be safe from the Win 10 downloads - until MS set them as Important :(

As mentioned above I never saw the point of the recommended updates as they only fix obsure inconsistencies (not even bugs)
