I know that policy auditor can check for Microsoft Patches as well as many other OS patches, but can it check for vulnerable applications like java, flash, adobe, etc on Windows.  In a mobile environment a standard scanner can catch mobile devices so I was hoping to find out if these apllication checks are provided in Policy Auditor before spending too much time researching.  Any info would be appreciated.

Here's a link to a public site example that provides importable benchmark checks:
