Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/611672/is-there-a-trustworthy-list-of-win-7-updates-on-bc/page-0 - Hamluis.

 

How does Never10 compare with GWX Control Panel and equivalents, other than that Never10 requires updating daily?

 

Can more than one GWX blocker be used simultaneously, or is one only the best option?

 

It's a never ending job trying to keep up with which updates are best blocked/uninstalled if not upgrading to Windows 10, but here are some that have been quoted:

KB3035583, KB3068708,  KB3021917, KB3050265, KB3014460, KB3044374,

KB3050267, KB3022345, KB3075249, KB3080149

 

SuperSapien64 also has a set of updates:

You don't have to run Never 10 daily. I only ran it once. But it seems it will only work on PCs that are already up to date. And it says on the Never 10 website that it may not work the first time so keep trying it.

Thanks for your information on Never 10.

 

I might keep it in mind as an additional option to GWX Control Panel.

Never10 uses the Microsoft approved method for blocking Win 10 updates as they've outlined in this support page. These instruction are a bit complicated for the average user. Never 10 takes care of changing these settings using a nice graphical interface. That's something Microsoft should have done but didn't. They probably wrote this for IT departments so they should be reliable over time.

Microsoft didn't do that because they want to continue to nag users to upgrade to Windows 10 and even trap them into upgrading using automatic Windows updates. They stepped over the line when they started doing that. I didn't care about the nags or the icon in systray. But I turned off auto updates to avoid downloading Windows 10 automatically. Never 10 is a simple solution for the average user. It worked and I turned auto updates back on.
