    Exactly the same...!
    The reason of its existence is in case, for any reason, you delete the history of Windows Update. In that case you won't be able to see any updates.
    The scripts gets updates not from the Windows Update database but from the events logs. Which if you don't clear you'll always have all the updates from the date of the installation of the latest Feature Update.
    Besides that, it gives all the history, not only the last 50 updates, as WU does!

    Just for fun go to the line where it says
    $OutputCollection += $output | where Title -Match "Windows Defender",
    make the following change, save it and run it:
    Code:
    $OutputCollection += $output #| where Title -Match "Windows Defender"
    Thanks for the explanation!. Very clear and understandable.

    You're welcome

    The actual script does not contain the where clause, so it gives the complete history of updates.
    The | where Title -Match "Windows Defender" was added to help @tomseys with his Windows Defender test!

    It seems like they are being downloaded more frequently than every 8 hours? Or is that just showing the times they became available when it checks on the 8th hour and it grabs them all? Or maybe I'm just confused lol.

    No it shows the actual time of the update. The setting we altered in Windows Defender does update every 8 hours and picks up the latest update, if available.
    If in the meantime, Microsoft pushes an update, or yours truly presses "Check for updates", in WU and one is found, then it is installed.
    The setting just makes sure, that at least 3 (in my case) updates are installed. If more are pushed by Microsoft that's OK too.

    Oh ok that makes sense. So we'll know soon if this thing is working.

    (when you stated: "check for updates" in WU, I got a little anxious)

    This is the actual script. Get-InstalledUpdates.ps1

    It contains two Options:
    Option 1, gets the updates from the Windows Update database.
    Option 2, gets the updates from the Event logs.

    It compares the two and outputs whichever has the most complete list.
