    KB3048043 was delivered on the 29th of April and again on the 6th of may. KB3022245 was patch Tuesday and 6th of may. The had to patch their patches. I've always installed everything they give me and have never had any problems, I have pretty much run of the mill hardware, and the average software(nothing exotic or new on the market) so that's probably why I get off lucky.

    Fair enough on your part, glad you are luckier then some. My part is had issues not long ago with something else so being more cautious lately till i know all is well. Diag Tracking is there, working and not giving me an issue, leave it for now and not that important of a service, just my opinion on it.TY for replies.

    One piece of advice that might help, I see in your specs you are using Norton for an AV, you could temporarily turn off the real time protection when downloading , installing and rebooting the updates. I have to turn off my dark theme when installing updates other than Defender, because I could get a black screen and cursor upon reboot, specially if it's a IE update.

    Sorry i am missing something again, what is your point about any updates ? Saying it may not check properly for updates or be able to download with real time protection on, may have missed some updates.

    Had more issues with other A/V then Norton, one did not allow me to use system restore no matter what i disabled, so far Norton has always been fine. Point being does it have to do with this update in question as seems your saying there is more then one for Diag Tracking or you speaking of something more in general ?

    I meant in general if you are having any problems installing,

    If you are not now, just ignore what I said. Some people using Norton, Avira and a couple others were having problems installing some updates. But that diagtracking is nothing new I had that before I installed the updates in Windows 7 even. I think some IT blogger saw the update and thought it was something new, but it's not, it's just being upgraded so to say.

    Gotcha ! No problem, thanks! Having no issues installing updates at all had 2014 Norton, now 2015. Other issue not sure what it was related to, was posted here for explorer crashes, so far it has been resolved.

    Random curiousity, since it was pushed as an important update... is it safe to disable the service? Would it cause any possible issues down the road?

    Yes, it would make Microsoft unhappy to be unable to track your activities.

    DiagTrack -What is does and how to disable it!!

    Key Loggers are also in all browsers and office tools(spell check) so if you all are worried then turn that stuff off now. They are not monitoring what you type but your choices and how it's used to improve the experience(make things easier). Also this is only for the Preview.
    This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program in order to determine whether compatibility issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed. This update will help Microsoft and its partners ensure compatibility for customers who are seeking to install the latest Windows operating system.
    It's the same when earlier upgrading from 7 to 8, where you went to Microsoft.com to have your system checked to see if you could even install 8 and which programs you had to uninstall before the upgrade process(like WMC).
