PCHealth Scheduler for Data Collection
(pchschd.exe) starts the collection of data for use by Windows Me's Help &
Support's System Information's History view. This allows users to see
changes over a period of time to their system such as drivers. The details
collected are placed in the files CollectedData???.xml files in the
Pchschd.exe is set to run every 10 minutes by default but actually does little and has
virtually no impact on the running of the system. This program simply
checks when run to see if your system is currently idle, if not it then
simply checks again in 10 minutes. If however the system is idle and has
been for the last few minutes it launches winmgmt.exe which collects details
of the current system configuration after which pchschd is set to check
again in six hours.
Microsoft’s PC Health Client Scheduling Application:

This information is used by the Windows ME Help & Support system accessible via "Start \ Help". The information collected by PCHealth is stored in the C:\Windows\PCHealth\HELPCTR\DataColl folder.
