Our very own Jonathan Jordan posted a great script that makes the job of keeping your Hosts and SCVMM Servers up to date simple. I pasted a short intro to his post below:
As a Microsoft Support Professional I’ve learned that Windows Update is the best way to keep SCVMM healthy. The time to install updates is not when there is a problem, but before there is a problem. A proactive approach prevents issues.
For all the details and to download the script see:

Do you check for kb976443? I ask because this is something which has recently affected me on Hyper-V hosts being managed by VMM and doesn't seem to be detected by your tool currently? If not, I would appreciate your take on the hotfix.
James, please reply to the support email listed on my post with this information. I need to know what errors you were having and how it affected you. I appreciate the question.
