    MBSA 2.0 home page now says scripts should be available during the last
    half of October.

    You can user MBSA (Microsoft baseline Security Analyzer) sample scripts,
    it has interesting reporting capabilities
    However last time I checked, the sample scripts are not available for
    MBSA v2.0 but for v1.2 only
    It also allows you to perform other checks like local administrator
    password, Automatic Updates configs amongst many more
    Have fun!
