    That is interesting - thanks
    On my PC the file is in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and is called ReportingEvents.LOG ​(No TXT files to be seen)
    I have extracted a few lines from mine and attached them here because I don't actually know how to interpret what I see there. If you can explain that, I for one would be very grateful as this looks like a useful way of establishing what WU is going to do.
    I mixed up .log and .txt since the log files open the same as .txt files.

    Anyways, since the PC Health Check update isn't listed in the catalog (even if there is a page mentioning KB5005463), one can't just copy and paste the updateid into a URL and get a page for it.

    An example of when that works..

    The NET update yesterday also queued, but when I copy "D03691FC-084F-4E36-80DF-80E626BAF0E9" (the numbers/letters in-between 101 and 201) to make the URL https://www.catalog.update.microsoft...F-80E626BAF0E9 it says "Update Details: 2021-10 Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64 (KB5006365)"

    But unfortunately that option isn't available for the health check and none of the updateids in your file went to catalog pages, so idk what is getting queued by your system. Maybe non-definition updates will start downloading if you press "Check for Updates".

    Well, I managed to remove, the popup about Windows 11 with this reg tweak that requires a restart. No need to go in Gpedit to do so, fits all editions. You could change it for 21H1, but not a good idea because we will end up on 21H2 sooner or later:

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "ProductVersion"  /t REG_SZ /d "Windows 10" /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersionInfo"  /t REG_SZ /d "21H2" /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "TargetReleaseVersion"  /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    The fresh install of build 19043.1288 was made offline and no trace of the app after (Revo or Ccleaner). It comes from Windows update with a second app:

    As seen in Revo_Pro

    1) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Update Health Tools


    2) C:\Program Files\PCHealthCheck


    The PC Health Check app does not open here, some settings are controlled by your organization? Good news!

    The screenshot shows incoming updates after the fresh install, including the optional one for 19043.1320. KB4023057 and KB5005463 is not listed in CP.

    All the best,
