    Is there a way to manually check for Security Update Compliance. What I
    really what to know is simple. Just if the computer is in full compliance
    with Windows Security Updates or not. I don't need to know the updates needed
    or anything else.

    Thank you but I am aware of the MBSA tool but what I am looking for is a way
    to manually check for total compliance without the use of a tool. I am
    running SMS and have 1000's of clients. The standard reports are too complex
    to give to management. So I either need to find some way to manually check
    and script out or a better SQL query. Something that only shows 'Machine
    Name' 'Patched' or 'Not Patched'.

    Any thoughts?
