I mentioned this one in my updates monitoring thread a while back, basically it's very similar to KB3035583. Users who do not want to install windows 10, and that would be most of the people who still have windows 8.1 or 7*, should not install this update. They should hide it (although it may be re-released in future at which point it would need hiding again) and ensure updates are set to check automatically but not to download without user approval. In short, users should make sure to only install updates that are needed, rather than trust updates to be fully automated and then remove or hide unwanted ones later.

*It's been almost a year since windows 10 was made available, most people who want it will have it already.

This is why I refuse to install any optional updates, only Security Updates. I also uncheck the box that asks if I want to receive recommended updates the same way I receive important updates in settings. 

 

At least we will not have to worry about this after July.

I'm the same with the updates, but I also turn off BITS and WU to disabled
and then active them again to check my updates, then deactivate them after, how
paranoid we are getting lol, it also stop junk downloading or working in the
background, I have been doing this for many many years with no ill effects.
