I am systme admin for WSUS, I have 3000 pcs that I manage acorss multiple wsus servers.

My problem is with MS07-040 and 180 pcs,  WSUS says patche installed on those machiens,
Widnowsupdate.log , shows the patch is installed OK as well.

Looking at C:/windows    I cannot find entries   for ms07-040 at all
Cannot find it on Add/ Remove programs either.

They way I scan for MS07-040 and other patches is via  Mcafee ePO  or SCP, which has a pre defined rule.

These machines are of WinXP and W2K

I guess my question is where can i find out for sure if this patch was really installed or not ?

Thank you

    Thanks for the reply
    so if it does appear in the reg , does that mean it is installed ?
    why it is not creating a log file for it like all other patches ?  
    I actually found KB928365  which is part of ms07-040  as the key.  does this means it just installed the component needed only?

    Accepted Solution

    yes when its listed unter the key uninstall...its installed
    Normally its only installed what is needed on a specified pc!
    Here's a list where u can show

    To make sure start windows update on this pc and look if there a listed other updates where
    apply to ms07-040.

    Logfile...dont know. Seems so that no logfile is created!
