Update.
https://windowsreport.com/windows-10-update-kb4535996/

Thanks Bob, now we just have to figure out if we need to do this.

Great work MS, now we have gone from the monthly patch Tuesday update, to the rectify the patch Tuesday update issues update ;)

So far I've installed the optional update on one system.

Snap, left the optional one alone, though I don't believe I suffered of the issues from the previous cumulative update (certainly not any of the obvious ones).

EEek! If anyone finds the path to the driver update settings page to turn this "feature" off and can publish that on here, I think it would be appreciated.

As long as these drivers are certified, I think it's a good idea. I keep my drivers updated but only with certified versions.
Doing that has also never resulted in a problem.

5 Tips to Increase Security on Windows 10

Seems more of an Ad for Avast Anti-Track.  I did like the bit about being aware about the data MS collects from you  :P

Yes, it also seemed a bit strange to me in lieu of the recent Avast incident.
One should however still limit the amount of data that's shared if no changes are made. :)
Those same types of changes should be looked at in all of the programs and apps you're using.

If you don't have access to your cellular network, you also can't use it to share and use on your computer.
You need a good cellular network and, you need to make sure that you're allowed to use it as a hotspot.
Many times using it as a hotspot comes with an additional charge.
