Example - if you have a Windows security patch that was released earlier in the year and you installed it. Then, if another security patch came out to SUPERCEDE that original one...would the server/computer show both patches as being installed or just the latest one?

I imagine it would be both...?

"Shown" where? Add/Remove Programs control panel? – Greg Askew Dec 18 '12 at 17:02
Yes, Control panel or via powershell command (get-hotfix).. – lara400 Dec 19 '12 at 11:44
Usually both. There may be some oddball exceptions. – Harry Johnston Dec 21 '12 at 1:40
