Hi all,

I am upgrading to an SSD next week and I will be installing a fresh Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1. I wish to not install , spyware updates and most importantly Windows 10 updates. I have a list given by this link:
Windows 7 Updates to avoid. However, there are quite a lot so is there a way to check for multiple updates at once before they are installed? Thanks!

I'm assuming you've already done all this on your existing HDD? If so, you could simply clone the drive as is.

However, W7 is no longer supported... so sooner or later, you're either going to have to make the switch to W10, or find an alternate OS. Might make more sense to rip that bandaid off now....

By far, the vast majority of compromised PC's are those which have been purposely blocked from getting Updates.
Win 7, 8, 10, whatever.

Tread carefully.

Hey, whats your CPU? if its intel or ryzen 7th gen, win 7 and 8 will block yourself from getting updates. If you got i5 no problem, but you got i7 or Ryzen 7 you might need to use a win update patcher.
