You might look at the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA). I'm
pretty sure it can do what you're looking for.

I use the free nessus scanner for windows and as far as I know, it does
not provide that functionality. It only checks for well known
vulnerabilities that are identified by orgs like SANS, CVE etc etc.

Does anyone here use Nessus Vulnerbility scanner to check current GPOs
of various windows servers?  I'm wanting to see which servers are in
compliance with our password policy from a remote location?  Any ideas?
A final report of the results is what I'm looking for.  Thanks!
