    This update???? just appeared on WUSH – I found and read what it is, but is it really necessary?  Seems to be more of MS intrusive interference. I have had to turn off Notifications because of the annoying messages that “we’ve” done this or checked that, keep popping up.

      it’s the Check if your computer can run Windows 11 app.

        it’s the Check if your computer can run Windows 11 app.

        It’s a wee bit more than just a hardware check, don’t you think?

          Not just a ‘wee’ bit more – IMO a lot more, and not a benign check.

        Is there a definitive verdict yet on whether it is advisable to accept this update?

        If I have no immediate plans to upgrade to Win11, is it reasonable to hide this update?

        If I hide this update, and later decide to upgrade to Win11, would it be necessary at that time to unhide this update, and install it prior to performing the Win11 upgrade?

          You do not need to install it, you do not have to have it installed before going to 11.

      Those who prefer to delay the installation of updates on their system, take note:

      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.

        I saw that too.  But I’m not sure whether or not this means that Group Policy settings will be ignored.

        Application updates, not Windows updates.

      What is the recommendation for this? Defer it if not interested in Win 11?

      • #2397328

        I would defer for 6 months new oses tend to be too buggy and I rather wait till most bugs are out.  I did put in 11 but rolled back and blocked it as don’t like the new UI and start menu.

      It appeared in Wushowhide last night on my 8th generation laptop, too. But not on my 6th generation laptop.

      Never saw that update but I haven’t installed PC Health Check application.
      KB5005463 is replacing KB4023057 ?:

        Never saw that update but I haven’t installed PC Health Check application. KB5005463 is replacing KB4023057 ?:

        It appeared in my WUshowhide also – I hid it.

        I have not installed the PC Health Check application and KB4023057 was never installed, but still shows as hidden in my WUshowhide.

        Now both KB5005463 and KB4023057 show as hidden.

        I installed and ran it on a test laptop. If you manage updates with group policy as most of us appear to do, don’t bother with this health installation–when you run it as a check for Windows 11, it will just come back and tell you that “your organization” manages your machine/updates, so it’s completely useless.

      WHAT A CHEEK

      One click, no confirmation requested; and wooooosh, it was installed!

      Removed just as quickly via Apps >Apps and Features.

    • #2397382

      my machines are not worthy of win 11 so I hide the update.
