I came across this "Information", somewhere else on another Blog
I can also "Confirm", that I did in deed have 3 of these Microsoft supposed updates installed in my Windows 7 and I "DELETED" them - without any problems at all to my computer.
So , I'm passing this info to the rest of you, who may want / like to "DELETE" these Termites from your system, as they supposedly are slight resource hogs and send irrevelant information to mickey'soft.
Heres the original info :
This is for anyone with WINDOWS-7 that would like there computer to run like normal again by getting rid of the virus's (Microsoft has disguised as recommended updates) or slowdowns Microsoft has installed over the past few months.
Go to... Windows Update // View Update History // Installed Updates
Then once you are there look for the following installed updates. (See below)
If any are found select each one individually and at the top of the screen click uninstall.
*** This is the one that nags you every time you turn on the computer, asking you to install "WINDOWS 10" (if you want to install 10
, please skip this one)
The rest are Telemetry which sends Microsoft a list of programs you have on your computer EVERY time you turn it on, which is why it has been running so slowwwww.....
*** Restart your computer ***
After making these changes you will want to go back to windows update and have it search for updates. The updates you just removed will appear again (this is normal) and you will simply select each one and select hide. NOW your computer will run normal without the annoying win10 update popup and the back ground data collection going on with every startup.
I have performed this operation on several computers now and have very positive feedback from all of them. Then I wondered why I do not see the same issue’s at work on any of the work computers I use. After doing some research I found that these updates are not sent to windows 7 “Enterprise Edition” Which is what most Company’s/Business’s use.
But if you have ALL these updates installed and a few I have looked at have, you will notice your computer running better once you have completed this. And you can only guess what these ""system resource hogging updates"" are doing for you flight simulation experience.
