I am curious if Qualys only looks for one value in the registry to determine if a system is "pending reboot".  Per the description, and based on what I have seen in my environment, this is all I ever see reported:

 

 

So, what about others like:

if this exists:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired

 

if this key has anything other than 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile

 

if this exists:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\RebootPending
