Lack of detail in Win7 SP1 scan results

Hi all,


I have a question about the results I am receiving in when scanning Windows 7 SP1 workstations.


Having moved from scanning Windows XP to scanning Windows 7, I am seeing very different details within the vulnerability scan results for scans run with the same option profile and using the same domain admin authentication.


Where the XP scans showed a great deal of information on out-of-date software components (such as WinZip or Acrobat), the same scan on Windows 7 SP1 is not showing this kind of information and missing entirely on identifying an out-of-date version of Acrobat (v9) on a test machine.

I have conformed authentication is succeeding on the Windows 7 machine, so I do not believe that to be the issue.


Any thoughts, observations or experience troubleshooting similar results is approciated.
