This is MS security checking tool which will scan your system for known problems report what it finds and get the patches for you.

Can you post a link to a page that describes what it is/does. I don't like downloading anything (even .msi files) until I know what it is.

Just me being security concious - free and microsoft in the same sentence tend to send a cold shiver down my spine Cheesy

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer has been available for some time now. There is one downside (unless it has been updated), it doesn't account for some updates on Win2K.

The MS page relating to it is HERE

Yeah i have been running this tool quite often at work. Its really handy to know if we have any false admin accounts especially as I work in a huge school.

Shame when we run it remotely it doesnt show up the update lists on the NT 4 boxes.

None the less, all thats getting upgraded to win2000 Smiley
