I was in the process of backing up my small HDD, that I have my OS installed on when it failed.  Clicking sounds and then shut-down.  Now it completely fails to boot from it.


I have a new drive with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit on it.  I am about to start the update process.  I know there are a bunch of updates that I really don't need/want due to MS telemetry, GWX, etc.  


Now my question: Should I just install all of the updates, then run the "remove telemetry updates" script?  Or should I manually just uncheck the telemetry updates as they show up.  I don't have a ton of spare time and I feel the latter would be too tedious for my liking.

The clicking sounds from HDD are NOT good (it's failing), if you can, do a Short and Long Generic test on it (unless you just want to toss it and start with a new hdd)


And if you don't want windows 10 uninstall the update KB3035583.



but i always find it less, stressful if i install all updates first then remove the BS all at once. :)



Hope that helps some!
