Spiceworks Software Scans Not always Accurate

Spiceworks is a great product. Great because it does a good job and it is free from costs; but like all software, and especially software that audits other software, there is sometimes some discrepancies. As you can see in the graphic below, even though Spiceworks correctly identifies that I have two installations of Microsoft Security Essentials, and that the version numbers are correct, it is a little confusing about what the numbers of the versions relate to: Software or Virus Signatures.

I compared the two machines and they were both exactly the same, but Spiceworks used the different numbers to report on the Dashboard.
