Just curious, is this update causing problems.

KB3044374 was initially released April of 2015 when I installed on 4/11/15 as an optional update but this one anyway has not caused any problems that I can tell. I avoided or uninstalled many of the updates that even remotely had anything to do with W-10 but I let this on slip by at the time and I don't know if trying to get rid of it now would serve any purpose since it doesn't seem to be triggering anything. Without KB3035583 installed not much can happen and I have multiple backup scenarios to fall back on just in case.

I don't think I would worry too much about KB3044374 if you cannot uninstall it. Update KB3035583 (GWX Get Windows Ten) is by far the primary mechanism for getting W-10 on your machine. Without that installed and having your Updates set to Not Install Anything Automatically should keep you safe. You might check Task Scheduler (Task Scheduler Library/Microsoft/Windows/Setup) for any reference to GWX.
