    Is there anyway I can find out when an update is installed on any
    particular machine from the wsus console?

    WSUS console showed that few machines need this critical update (KB
    836528, worm removal tool, classified as critical update)few days ago. I
    checked the console yesterday and it showed that these machines don't
    have this update in their needed list. I assume WSUS has installed it
    onto the machines. However, when I checked the wsus console, I can't
    find this update in the installed list of these machines. I also can't
    find it from the add/remove program list (both W2k and XP pro) from the
    machines themself. Can anyone advice what is happening?

  2. You should decline the KB836528 update ("Mydoom, Zindos, and Doomjuice
    Worm Removal Tool"), as it is superseded and replaced by the
    "Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool", KB890830. To see
    KB890830 on your WSUS server, you need to have WSUS configured to sync
    the classification "Update Rollups".

    Note that the worm removal tools will not show up in the add/remove
    program list, as it doesn't actually install anything.

    When a WSUS client installs the KB890830 worm removal tool, you will
    get a "Installed" status for that update on that computer in the WSUS
    console though.

    Thanks Torgeir,

    Is KB890830 classified as critical or security update? I have configured
    the wsus server to update any critical/security update from MS update
    site. Isn't it that it should be available in the server without the
    update rollups option enabled?

  4. Hi,

    Sorry, as I wrote, KB890830 is classified under "Update Rollups", so
    if you only have selected the critical and security update
    classifications, you will not see KB890830.
