    1- have you restarted the client ? sometimes it needs a restart to complete patch installation.

    2- Is there any failure for those patches in WSUS ? it shows you number of successful and failed deployments.

    I have everything enabled except drivers and they are all approved ? The clients have been restarted, just looking at any failure options or events.

    The KBs that you mentioned in your questions are under "Updates" category , If you enabled everything but drivers , then this update should be there too.

    Check the update , sometimes it's not yet downloaded OR it is suppressed by another update.
