Looking for a way I can review Windows Update logs on mulitple computers. We have a WSUS that is dedicated to the workstations but we're unsure if the machines are pulling the updates from WSUS correctly or not as some machines are showing various versions of internet explorer for example even though 10 and 11 are not approved yet.

You can check %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log on the workstations.
Also use "WSUS Client Diag Tool" on workstations - Link
