Does Secunia scan analze ones o.s. so if a MS update was missing from their particular o.s. it would alert you?
I ask because not all updates are visible in "history".

Part of the psi full scan is devoted to detecting vulnerabilities in Windows/MS updates....so yes, if there was something missing from a Security standpoint, it would be detected.....and advise you accordingly.
When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this procedure when installing Microsoft Updates:
1) Check Microsoft Update: install all security-related patches
3) Repeat step 1: repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI
Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,
