I have on my Windows 2008 R2 installation folder with sspicli.dll file:

C:\Windows\WinSxs\wow64_microsoft-windows-lsa_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16484_none_0c932857aadde4a8\sspicli.dll

I need to determine which windows update/package brought this folder/file to the box
How can I do that?

the only thing that immediately comes to my mind is to see which updates were installed lately, and then see if the update applies changes to the dll.

the last modified date of the dll should also help. its a tedious process.
see example of files update here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980408
