Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum.
l accidentally deleted Microsoft Update Health Tools version 5.72.0.0 about a week ago. I attempted to download it from the official site Download Update Health Tools from Official Microsoft Download Center ,but the msi. couldn't install, and it turned out to be an older version (specifically, version 5.69.0.0 not 5.72.0.0).

I'd like to know if removing this tool will affect updates on my Win11 23H2 build. Also, how can I reinstall the latest version of Microsoft Update Health Tools on my computer?
Can I smoothly update my device without Microsoft Update Health Tools?
Should I just need to wait for KB4023057 with this tool show up in my windows update again?

I need some experiences ,advice and solutions of this condition.
My system work normally now.
System: Win11 23H2 22631.2861

Thanks

KB4023057 is routinely reissued by Microsoft, it is applicable to all versions of Windows 10 and 11. Its main purpose on consumer devices like yours and mine is to make sure there's enough free space for updates to proceed smoothly. As long as you have plenty of free space on your C: drive (say, 10GB or more) then it should have no work to do, you'll get all your updates without it. And anyway, you'll get the Health Tools back next time MS update it. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

This is a description of its purpose, from when KB4023057 was known in Windows 10 as the 'Windows 10 update for update reliability'. These days MS have stopped providing such a detailed description of how it works, but its function is the same now as it was then.
Notes about this update...
  • This update may try to reset network settings if problems are detected, and it will clean up registry keys that may be preventing updates from being installed successfully.
  • This update may repair disabled or corrupted Windows operating system components that determine the applicability of updates to your version of Windows 10.
  • This update may compress files in your user profile directory to help free up enough disk space to install important updates.
  • This update may reset the Windows Update database to repair the problems that could prevent updates from installing successfully. Therefore, you may see that your Windows Update history was cleared
