Windows updates displayed in a text file

Hi, I've been trying to generate a report of the Windows Updates of a PC. Below is the .Bat file I've tried to write. Please help to correct my error.

hostname > "%USRPROFILE%\hotfix.txt"
echo. >> "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.txt"
wmic qfe list brief /format:texttablewsys >> "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.txt"

Output should be
Line1 - hostname
Line2 - Blank Line
Line3 and Below - Table of Windows Update and Installation Date

I hope someone will be able to help. I'm not good at programming.

You have a typo in line 1 (USRPROFILE instead of USERPROFILE), and you can pipe the wmic output through find.exe to turn the unicode output into something readable:
@echo off
setlocal
hostname > "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.txt"
echo. >> "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.txt" 
wmic.exe qfe list brief /format:texttablewsys | find.exe /v "" >> "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.txt"
