    Hi @Andy Goodrich

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    You can open the Visual Studio Installer > Modify > Individual components tab > search “Windows Performance Toolkit” > check that the component is selected. 

    In VS2022, the component ID of Windows Performance Toolkit is Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.Windows11Sdk.WindowsPerformanceToolkit

    When you update the VS2022, the update process may perform some actions or changes to this component or the workloads that contain this component. I don't think it has anything to do with your operating system. If there are no issues during the update process, you can ignore it.
