Batch Update Uninstaller - Uninstall Forced Win10 & Telemetry - Page 7

post #61 of 399
I'm pretty puzzled as to why the update search is not finding that update, but since it can be solved by other means I'm going to give up on solving it.

There is a lot of suspicion surrounding this update, sometimes it causes issues with WU, but I haven't read anything about it containing telemetry or pushing the whole "Get Windows 10" thing...
I need solid evidence from two different sources to add it to the list. Especially because it supposedly FIXES issues with WU taking a long time for many users,and I wouldn't want to deny anyone that based on suspicion alone.

W8.1 updates published on September 15th, 2015 were checked and are OK to install.

If you have KB3035583 INSTALLED Windows 7/8 will download the Windows 10 installation files, and crate a new folder for them called $WINDOWS.~BT. Regaurdless if you have chosen to "reserve" your upgrade to Windows 10 or not!
If you delete the folder without uninstalling KB3035583, it will keep re-downloading!
Source: http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/what-is-the-windows-bt-folder-on-my-hard-drive/

Solution:

1. Uninstall and hide 3035583 yourself or simply download and run the script in the first post. After all, that's what this thread is about!

2. From the article:
Quote:
You can now delete the $WINDOWS.~BT folder on your hard drive. You will need Admin privileges to do so but we’re assuming you already have those if you were able to uninstall the KB3035583 update. If you’re having trouble deleting the folder, try using disk clean up.

Hit Windows+R and type %windir%\system32\cleanmgr.exe in the run box. Select the Windows drive and allow it to scan the drive. Once it’s finished scanning, click the ‘Clean up System files’ button and allow it to scan your drive one more time.
I really think this is something that should be added to the script. Otherwise a waste of 3.5GB takes up your precious SSD space!

If you ever want to install Windows 10 in the future, all you have to do is restore all the updates hidden by the script, then install them. The folder will redownload automatically.

EDIT: Thread name changed smile.gif

Version 3.1.2 released! Head to the first post to check it out. http://www.overclock.net/t/1572731/batch-uninstall-hide-windows-updates-forced-win10-telemetry/0_100#post_24386004

This is only a minor update.
Here are a few of the changes:
  • Incorrect information about failing updates removed.
  • Swapped MS Article links were fixed.
  • Bat file changed to cmd file.
  • KbList text updated and thread link added.
  • Wording changes to make descriptions clearer and uniform.

The first post has been completely revamped with new and important information!
There are four new sections.

How to use, known issues, and the latest uninstall list. thumb.gif That is actually a big part of this update. I've received a few PM's asking these questions so I think this will proactively answer them.
Next up is credits. - I'm hoping to have more than two people to add to it though lol
I also want to add a sort of "Having this problem? Well here's the solution!" section. Except I can't call it an FAQ, because they are problems you didn't know you had until you looked. tongue.gif
Like this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1572731/batch-uninstall-hide-windows-updates-forced-win10-telemetry/0_100#post_24410330

AND NOW! FOR MY LATEST DISCOVERY! I am actually, an idiot.

Yes. That's right. I did something so stupid, that only a complete idiot would be able to do it and not realize what he'd done.

I ran this DISM command in attempt to slim down my WinSxS folder as much as I possibly could. I ran it even though there was a warning RIGHT BELOW IT with a nice yellow warning symbol to catch my attention about what would happen if I ran it.
Code:
Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
Quote:
exclamation.gif Warning

All existing service packs and updates cannot be uninstalled after this command is completed. This will not block the uninstallation of future service packs or updates.

Existing updates cannot be uninstalled after this command is completed. doh.gif

I ran it after I had run this script, but BEFORE I had revamped the list of updates to remove...

And that is my stupid story of how KB2976978 became impossible to uninstall.

arrowheadsmiley.png

Don't suppose there's any way to fix this?

EDIT: Besides a reinstall.

Version 3.2 released!

This is a MAJOR kbList.txt update.
Here are some of the changes:
  • 11 KBs added to the list applaud.gif
  • Updates reordered by KB ID.
  • Descriptions updated and typos fixed.
  • Other minor formatting changes.

An "Other recommendations" category has been added to the first post. Check it out!

Just to note, there were several updates considered for removal which did not make the cut. They're still open for discussion though and I'd like your opinions and feedback on them.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2999226 As far as I understand this lets you run specifically Windows 10 metro apps on 8.1 and 7 or something like that. ??
I seem to have lost the others.... rolleyes.gif Sorry!

AFAIK this is now the most complete list, and one of the only fully researched and sourced* ones out there! I am the QC. thumb.gif
*Yes, some do not have sources because M$ wiped their existence off the planet.

Yea that happens for some reason. We can't figure it out so far. Though this update has been reported to be a bit buggy, not showing up or installing correctly.
