Hi folks
Not sure what this is but it seems to emanate from Microsofts own code -- and I can't see any "contaminant" in it -- in any case on this Clean installed version of windows I haven't installed any Non Ms software yet !!!! apart from Desktop wallpaper image that I've had for Donkeys years without a single issue.

Any ideas any one - build is 22543 W11 X-64 PRO UK version from UUPDUMP.
The only A/V software I'm using is WD.

Cheers
jimbo

This is highly unlikely to come from Microsoft: if Microsoft wanted some code to run on startup it would create a scheduler task, not put it into Startup folder (which gets executed by the File Explorer, so would not run if someone uses a different shell or command prompt as shell replacement).

You can look into the script to see what does it do.

It's just two lines
#
blank
(checked also there's no hidden hex code or whatever).
ran this from WINPE with Windows 11 ISO image

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:E:\Sources\install.wim where E was the ISO image.
rebooted and all OK again.
