When you go to the program updated page, after Microsoft runs their little
scan, make you select install history to see what has been installed.

I stopped using it(Windows Update) because it appears to regress some
patches in SP2. After applying SP2 on some machines, I went to it out of
curiousity and it told me it needed to download about 6 patches, some dating
back to October of last year. Then once I did that, I rebooted and the
machine still told me I was at SP2, but upon going to Windows Update it
informed me that I should install SP2. Anyone else notice this?
