Gather WindowsUpdate.Log on Windows 10

Description

Microsoft started encoding the Windowsupdate.log file starting with windows 10. This log is useful in troubleshooting why updates have failed and can also be used to create auto remediation scripts for common error codes found in the file. The problem is the powershell command they want run wont just run as system, so I added a few steps to create a local account and then run it as that user. This will only run on windows 10 machines. I highly recommend you change the password and perhaps the user name of the account that is created. You can find the results by opening your Agent Procedures module, going to Get-File, and selecting your endpoint, it will be in a WULogs folder.
