Why can't I see the dates that tell me when a program was installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used to be able to see the date a program was installed and details such as how frequently the program was being used.  This was very useful because it allowed me to find programs that might have been recently installed without my knowledge.  I noticed a few months ago that the dates are no longer there, nor is the frequency.  I have set the folder to view details, but the only detail I can see is the name of the program.  This is happening under My computer, add/remove programs. 

    Does anyone know what is going on?  Or how I can get the details to become visible again?

  • First of all, this is a Vista forum and you must be using XP as you refer to Add or Remove Programs!

    However, I have a feeling that the install details were removed from the display when SP3 was introduced.
