today morning i installed 3 patches/fixes for IE via the AutoUpdate tool... it downloaded them automatically and asked to install.

is there a way to find out in windows 2000 prof what time and which patches/fixes were installed (e.g. their MS Q codes, like Q398717 etc.).

i also need to get a list of the files that were updated with these patches... perhaps on MS site. so please provide that information.

Thank you...

Hello,
-I agree netcheck is great... Run it with this
hfnetchk -V -Z >c:\%computername%-results.txt
-It will list vunerabilites, Q articles to read about why... etc..

-The installation history at windowsupdate.microsoft.com will give you a list of installed patches...

Hello loyaliser,
-Do you see the Q numbers ?

-Go to support.microsoft.com/support , choose to search the knowledgebase.. Type Q329414 .. Read the article..
-I figure you'll have to read approx 6-8... They usually offer the fix for the netcheck reported error..

-Install this as well... My co-worker here tells me its a front end for netcheck & better...
