Vulnerability scan not reporting full details of vulnerabilities for software

When I run a full authentication scan on our workstations some of our devices do not report back software vulnerabilities - i.e window patches, browser patches etc.

These same machines also do not list installed software and within this section it says - run a scan on your host to get software information.

Os type differs for those that do scan full verse those that dont

for example a windows 10 device that does scan shows as

where as one that does scan shows as

 

I have ran scans multiple times and the same host reports (or rather does not report) the same information every time.

Is there some setting/requiment for endpoint to enable these scans from collecting all the required information.

 

Note- test have been ran on the same vlan and same group policy would be applied to these workstation that work and not work.

I have confirmed that the windows authentication credentials are passing for successfully for each host

 

windows 7 and windows 10 machine both report a mixture of results
