Review Updates

When Update Services receives information about a newly released update that applies to computers on the network, it places the update in the Waiting for Review node of the Update Services snap-in. Whether the update is one that is automatically approved or whether it must be manually approved, it is placed in Waiting for Review.

With the number of updates available for download, reviewing every update that is released could become difficult to manage. Update Services provides powerful help for managing updates by displaying only the updates that apply to at least one of the computers on your network. If an update is released that does not apply to any computers on your network, Update Services does not display the update. This reduces the number of updates that you need to manage.
