There are people, such as myself, that will not install Windows 10 because of the excessive telemetry and spyware the operating system has built into it. Rather than do the proper thing, which would be to remove the telemetry from Windows 10, Microsoft is now infecting Windows 7, 8, 8.1 with spyware through the windows update service. Two of the updates have been rolled out in the past and one is rolling out now that will insert the same telemetry and user tracking into W7-W8.1 that Windows ten has baked in. These updates are KB3075249, KB3080149 and KB3068708. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3075249 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3080149 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3068708 KB3068708 is the telemetry update that is rolling out now; the other two have already rolled out. These particular updates ignore user settings and the hosts file, and send user information to Microsoft without regard to the user preferences and settings, and other evasive measures. Presently the three updates can be uninstalled which allows the user to keep his/her privacy. If the updates are uninstalled, they should also be hidden so that they will not later be reinstalled.
