To improve Windows Server I suggest you ...

Resurrect WindowsUpdate.log, or create a proper dedicated Event Log

Enough said.

        Additionally, the "Get-WindowsUpdateLog" PowerShell cmdlet that you have to run to generate the new WindowsUpdate.log doesn't work if you don't have Windows Defender installed, because the first step in the process tries to copy a Defender dll. You get the error message:
        "Copy-Item : Cannot find path 'C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\SymSrv.dll' because it does not exist."
