    Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program is just another name for tracking the user.
    There are ~30 tasks related to it, just reading their descriptions gives a good idea, what they do.
    There are 3 diagnostic services and error reporting, which deal with with computer related issues.

    I just found this: How to disable the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows - gHacks Tech News and thought it might interes you. Personally I leave all Windows services to default, but rather than totally shut something off, it is recommended to set a service to Manuel.

    Alrighty then, set start-up to Manual, and stopped the damned thing. If it starts up on boot, I'll set it to Disabled. I have to question why it doesn't natively run as Manual and auto-runs. Yeah sure it only takes up 1.5-1.6MB of RAM but still not a reason to run it if there's no reason. Especially on Windows 8.1.

    The thing is, Windows 8.1 groups together services based on what is needed. The frustrating thing is how Microsoft seems to have completely forgotten that part so DiagTask sticks out because its running in its own process group "utcsvc". Legit they could apply it to a group or something so as to not clutter up the Task Manager. Just saying, Microsoft...

    Cliff S right about some other update for this Diag Tracking, after those Tues. Updates May 12 it is like yours set to Automatic, which was once set to manual before it. Seems optional updates were made important or recommended on Tues.

    Sounds like good advice, manual like before, try it myself.

    Just realized from another post here taking this update has caused issues for some, namely me, ran SFC received files could not be repaired, DISM failed also.

    Found from another posts here Anybody run an SFC after installing KB3022345?
    that had this issue and uninstalled the update and all was good. Same was helpful to me, uninstalled optional update to enable Diag tracking KB3022345 ,all is good now, no integrity violations in SFC and DISM checks out good too.

    There are/have been quite a few update blunders from Microsoft, the last couple of years, since they started firing people. I'm beginning to wonder if it's the debuggers, that got the axe.

    Tried windows debugger on error shown in Event Viewer, although never helped me, posted here too and just as hard to decipher. Well i tried at first disabling this service (diag tracking) as you did, i would of never known it caused integrity violations and DISM issues till i came across that post i linked. Checking mine having same results, well all is good.
