Anyone have a WMI script ?- we can use our Help Desk Auditing software I suppose, but it seems there should be a way to verify this from AD...

If you deployed it properly - it was installed.  Otherwise, Group Policy client side extensions would continue to install it every reboot.

Have you check a few PCs?  If it's good on a few , it should be good on them all.
