What does the "Last Known Good " profile really do?

By michael.erskine.ctr ·
I have been patching systems for the last week getting ready for an audit scan. I use Retina because that's what the IA scanners will use. I have patched this one system that had over 20 High vulnerabilities almost 20 Mediums and over 110 Low vulnerabilities. I patched it up having to manually replace some dll's because the patch indicated a newer update had taken care of the problem. I rebooted rescanned and was happy to see only 20 to 30 Lows with no Highs or Mediums. At the end of the day I performed a net scan just to check before the Audit team arrived and this system had gone back to over 20 High vulnerabilities almost 20 Mediums and over 110 Low vulnerabilities. I questioned the very knowledgeable user, a developer\programmer, if he had changed anything, he just laughed and said, "no."

HELP!!!

Last known good would only apply with these results if you installed all of the above updates without rebooting in between any of them.

Otherwise last known good would apply only to the last successful full login to this PC.
