I see this come up in some vulnerability scans on just a few Windows 10 Pro computers and am wondering how it came to be?
The computers are no different than others on the network.
Any insights?

I see *fixes* but no *causes*....

You need to check what software have been installed in all workstations before you can drill down the cause.

I did try to use the description of the registry "fixes" to see if I could ascertain what was being done and maybe figure out why.
It was way beyond my ability to accomplish anything from that.

Why is "checking what software has been installed" different from "the computers are no different than others"?

I would love to find some application-related correlation here and figured someone else may have experience with it.
Trying to correlate the presence or absence of applications over many computers seems like a relatively monumental task - even in an environment where the spectrum isn't very broad, it's still daunting.
Any toolsl to suggest that would help avoid a lot of manual labor?

Well, yes, I've done that but it isn't a commercially-available product and is one-off per computer.
So creating a database of multiple computers wouldn't be just a quick action.
But yes, you're correct in that they probably aren't identically the same - only that they are of the same ownership and management and have few "different" programs.  Yet, we've run into incompatibilities from time to time; rarely but it does happen.

I'm using GFI Languard and can get a software inventory PER COMPUTER.  
The issue remains, how to readily compare these inventories.  
Well, IF that's the best approach.
Is this issue so obscure that nobody has an idea?
