Check for updates

 

Going through the Installed Updates list to check for a specific update that might or might not mess things up can be tedious using appwiz.cpl

Introduced in Powershell version 4 we have a new cmdlet for this purpose that come in handy.

Show list of all installed hotfixes
/> get-hotfix

Show if a specific update is installed:
/>get-hotfix -id "kb2843630"
