So have you removed these & are they necessary ? I did remove the PC Health Check Up but not the MS Update Health Tools, i think the latter is connected with "Windows Update" i think it is used in getting your new updates ! So my research shows, but they can be reinstalled if you accidentally delete it. Once you have update your system i don't think it matters if you delete "PC Health Check Up" or am i wrong ?
Any thoughts on these ??

Neither application is installed on my Windows 11 PC and Laptops. Heath check was first made to show Windows 11 compatibility and beyond that is, in my option, unnecessary. I have read that Microsoft may develop the app for future use in the Dev insider group.

The PC Health Check has little or no benefit once you have updated to Windows 11 and can be removed without any issues. If you remove it from Windows 10 then Windows Update will note that it has already been installed once and not try to reinstall it.

I think the 'update health tools' you mention are KB4023057. If so, these are mainly of benefit for future upgrades, and then only if you are getting short on disk space. They too can be removed without causing issues. MS periodically update these, and when they do they'll be installed again. For details of their purpose and function see:

Bree, thanks for your knowledge on this ! Yes i have researched it a lot, especially on removing it, which i did on 2 of my machines just to see if there will be any consequences while checking on a couple other machines to see if i still get updates ! Time will tell. These are 2 different apps, right ?

Important By default, when you open the PC Health Check application, it will automatically install important application updates when they become available. PC Health Check users will not be able to turn off automatic updates.
You can uninstall PC Health Check by going to Apps > Apps & Features > App list (Windows PC Health Check) > Uninstall.
