Why are all patches listed in the Security Update Guide for a specific windows build not found on a supposedly up to date computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some computers I'm currently just managing updates with Windows Update.  A computer will appear to be 'up to date' on patching.  However, if I run something like `wmic qfe list` or `Get-Hotfix` and I get a list of the patches installed on the computer I will find that of the 9 or so listed for that windows build and time range in the Security Update Guide, only 1 or 2 will actually be installed.  I'm struggling to answer for compliance how I know all the patches that should be installed, are installed, when the one source I've found for available patches seems to show I'm not up to date, but Windows Update seems to think I am up to date.  Thanks for the help.
