Overall everything on this list appears to be targetting Windows 10 and telemetry updates. Several updates are repeated twice on the list (2977759, 2990214, 3068708, 3075249, 3080149 and 3022345). Besides that I'm not exactly sure how update 2670838 falls into this list, though people do seem to have had issues with the update and performance. It seems to mostly affect the transition between different viersions of IE.

EDIT: Here is a copy of OP's, but in numerical order and with duplicates removed in case you like to confirm that the updates are removed manually and so that you can hide them:

Thanks a lot for the descriptions. I have some saved somewhere, too.

Thanks for the duplicate list too, fixing now. As for the KB2670838, it STILL crashes computers if you don't have the required fix update for it, even though it's rare. But these days people are not gonna install any more updates, so better get rid of this one so it doesn't crash your PC.

I have no choice but to keep installing updates because my computer is glitched and bugged to hell and back with new issues every time I log in. My only hope for relief is new updates...

...Well, it is if you are a Windows user.
Quite funny from my perspective I have to say. ;p
I still hope nothing too bad happens to any of you Windows users,
but I love how it now is more work to use (and not be used by) Windows than Linux.

Some more safety steps you can/should do:

CMD (win+R, write cmd, enter):

sc stop Diagtrack
sc delete Diagtrack

Task Scheduler Library (search for this in start)

Delete:
Everything under "Application Experience"
Everything under "Autochk"
Everything under "Customer Experience Improvement Program"
Under "Disk Diagnostic" only the "Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector"
Under "Maintenance" "WinSAT"
"Media Center" and click the "status" column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.

services.msc (win+R, write services.msc, enter):

"Remote Registry" to "Disabled" instead of "Manual"

This probably gets said too much, but just load Linux. I made the leap this week on my gaming rig, and it's not that painful. There are some issues you'll run into, sure, but anyone with even a modicum of technical experience, and it sounds like most of the people here fit that bill, will be able to work through it. Why take your OS apart piecemeal to stay with the option that is guaranteed to bite you in the ass again in the future, when you can just take the hint now and jump ship?

Out of curiosity, do you know if OSX is as bad as Windows with this sort of thing?

From my experience, no, it's nowhere near as bad, and is actually getting better with future releases.

I'm personally not an Apple fan, but I seriously doubt it. I can tell you that Open/FreeBSD, Unix systems derived from the same source as OSX, has none of this crap

I will. I am installing Linux this weekend. I have a hard drive formated and reserved and I will dual boot for now, use Linux as main and Win 7 for games which only run under Win.

I just compiled a list, see below. Overall everything on this list appears to be targetting Windows 10 and telemetry updates. Several updates are repeated twice on the list (2977759, 2990214, 3068708, and 3022345). Besides that I'm not exactly sure how update 2670838 falls into this list, though people do seem to have had issues with the update and performance.

I trust @Voluptuous_Panda 's assessment and the list + correlating descriptions he compiled, but thanks for the extra affirmation.
