I'm currently running WSUS 3.0 on a Windows 2008 server with Vista & Windows 7 clients. I like the way it works but there are more cons than pros about it. Is there somethiing else out there "FREE" I can use to determine what Windows updates my client have & what they need?

Explain what cons you find, often they are just a lack of information.

With WSUS how do I determine what updates each client has?

You go to the Update Services console, click on reports and run the Computer Status report

That does not show what updates the workstation has or does not have...it only shows that it has "1 update have not been installed" etc....am I looking in the wrong place?
