Powershell Windows Update Script

Powershell Windows Update Script

Powershell Windows Update Script

I was wondering if someone could assist me in a powershell script that would do a couple of things:

* Read from a text file of a list of KB's (windows updates) to uninstall
* Run over a network domain to where if it is on a machine remove the KB's listed in text file on server.
* Keep a list of computers it connects to to remove the KB's

I have been failing misrablly at this; can someone help please?

Thanks In Advance.

RE: Powershell Windows Update Script

Have you looked at any of the Windows Update modules for PowerShell out there?

The one I use the most is this one: http://jdhitsolutions.com/blog/2010/08/windows-update-module/

However, you could certainly just make a list of the registry keys from the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall key, look at the uninstall string, and do an invoke-command on them.
