    I just downloaded and ran MBSA 1.2.1 against a server that
    I fully patched last night. MBSA is saying 2 critical
    updates are missing and 11 cannot be confirmed. How
    credible is MBSA if on a fully patched machine it does not
    show that the machine is fully patched?

    Confused!!!!!

    Ditto ... I really hate MBSA for always coming back with "Can not confirm" etc ... when you KNOW that particular update is installed.
