    Belarc Advisor and Windows 10 security


    For a long time I've used Belarc Advisor to Double Check my Windows Security

    This worked well form Windows XP through Vista and Windows 7

    Now, on Windows 10, I'm getting lists of "Missing" security updates that either don't apply or Microsoft has no knowledge of (the KBxxxxxxx links go no where)

    Could it be confusion caused by the multitude of Windows 10 releases?

    Just wondering if either anyone knew the answer or is Belarc Advisor obsolete?

    Well, one simple way to check if you really are up to date -at least as far as Windows itself is concerned - is to check your build number with the latest shown in the News section here.

    There's a thread per update per build, with download links if needed. E.g.
    KB4535996 CU Win 10 v1903 build 18362.693 and v1909 build 18363.693

    Ensure you update to the latest version of Belarc Adviser. I have W10 v1909 fully up to date. BA shows the the missing update below but the update is installed. There is obviously an error in the BA database.

    If those updates were relevant to you then Windows update would get them for you.

    KB4532938 is a .Net framework update from January 2020 that has been superceded by another.
    KB2565063 & KB2538243 are Visual C++ updates from 2017 and I would guess that they have also been superceded.

    Thanks.

    Guess the "confusion factor" around Windows 10 even confuses pros @ Belarc
