Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates
Only 19 updates have been applied my Microsoft Windows Vista OS via Automatic Updates.

Your Knowledge Base link suggests that there are 66 updates post RTM?!?

On second thought, that makes sense. In a private network environment where I have WSUS 3.0 deployed, I generally only approve 'needed' updates. It might be an interesting exercise to enable the Windows Vista catalog on WSUS at work tomorrow, to see how many updates could be pushed if I had Vista clients.
