FeedBack: SUS vs HfNetChk
I would like to get some feedback regarding from people using either SUS or HfnetChk. What benifits/disadvantages have you seen from either product. Also I believe HfnetChk is available via command line in MS security baseline analyzer is anyone using this and if so what are the major drawbacks vs the GUI.

Thanks

...At some point Microsoft may stop supporting HFNetChk and MBSA 1.2.1. I am not sure when this will occur because even the old version of HFNetChk they have in MBSA 1.2.1 supports a number of product that WSUS does not support. WSUS is also not a scanner as it requires an running agent on every computer to work.  My assumption is they cannot elimate HFNetChk until WSUS supports all the things MBSA 1.2.1 does....

WSUS versus Shavlik?

So Matthew says he's in charge of a 60 user CPA firm, on a non SBS, but fully 2003 sp1 network (okay knock one point off Matt for not running SBS.. but let's keep reading)... and he's evaluating WSUS and looking at Shavlik.  He says he's got Windows XP sp2 (mostly), some Windows 2000 (um.... Matt.. another penalty deduction there), and Office 2003 Pro (okay add one point back) and Adobe Acrobat 6.0....
