Conflicting Compliance report results/Updates appearing in compliance report that aren't in an update list
I'm getting some conflicting results between a couple of different compliance reports as well as computers appearing as non-compliant even though the non-compliant updates aren't in even in the update list in question.
If I run the Compliance 1 - Overall Compliance report for my only update list for the Desktops collection it returns 49 non-compliant computers.
Here is an excerpt from the Compliance 6 - Specific computer report if I drill down on one of those computers:

Now the first strange thing is that all those Office 2007 updates aren't even present in the update list that I'm generating the compliance report for. So why are they showing as required but not installed?
The second strange thing is that if I run the Compliance 3 - Update list (per update) report for the same collection and update list I get different results. Those updates that are shown as being not installed on some of my computers in the first compliance report aren't showing up in this report. This report is showing the accurate list of updates in the update list.
Yes, I know this is an old post, I’m trying to clean them up.
Q1: The Report Compliance 6 - Specific computer shows all SU that are needed / applied to that computer.
Q2: You will need to show an example of what you mean.
