Symptoms

Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 clients managed by System Center Configuration Manager 2007 may appear in the "Out of Date" deployment status collection after an anti-malware platform update is installed through Microsoft Update.

Cause

The "Out of Date" collection checks for the version of the "Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 Server Management" entry in Add or Remove Programs data. This data is not updated by anti-malware platform updates that are released to Microsoft Update.

After the hotfix is applied, the collection will instead check for the version of the "Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection" entry in Add or Remove Programs data.
