    I recently learned about the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and it seems like a neat tool. It's mentioned in the Security Help Tools thread here as well.

    Has anyone used this tool? If so, what are your thoughts on it? I've run it only once and it seems like it can be useful.

    Your thoughts?

    Peace...

    I've used it on and off. It can identify patches that you have missed, for some reason, when using Windows Update.

    Is that like "qfecheck" that is also what "Belarc Advisor" uses to see if you have all updates.

    Qfecheck.exe verifies the installation of Windows 2000 and Windows XP hotfixes
