Hey Experts.  I need to uninstall Windows patches (5005033, 5103, 5031) while I work to resolve the printer installation process here.  To expedite the uninstall process, I've identified the KB's responsible and which PC's are affected.  However the Powershell script I'm attempting to build is not coming along as smoothly as I thought and due to time constraints, I need your help.


So far, I've been testing this:

$myComputers = Get-Content
"c:\scripts\mycomputers.txt"
foreach ($computer in $myComputers) {
 Uninstall-HotFix -ComputerName $computer
-HotfixID KB123456}

But I wanted to at least output whether the update was successfully uninstalled.  Any help on how to modify this to output the results?
