This is a follow up to Tom Lancaster's tip Lessons learned from MBSA 1.2. I have found that the best method for a full verification that all patches are present is to run the following:
1) MBSA 1.2
2) Windows Update (from IE).
3) Automatic Updates.
4) Office Update.
With the information received from all four processes (even though some of it is duplicated) I get a more accurate picture of what is missing.
