    I am sorry, my friend, I do not quite understand your question?

    Yes, you see those usage frequency figures................that bit I know

    What else is it you want to know?.............is it the "rules" or what?....

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    You mean you want to find a history of everything that has been added or uninstalled on the computer itself?

    You can often find this in the system logs. But, those logs get overwritten pretty quickly.
    I'm unsure how to get a complete listing. I will look around for evidence of a program... like undeleted folders, files, temp files. Or digging through the registry you can find references to programs that the uninstall program didn't remove. etc.
    Sometimes software audit tools work for that. Give aida32 a try or some other auditing software. Most software times audit tools will only list installed programs.

    Or you want to know where in the registry windows keeps the listings for the programs in add/remove utility?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    If you delete any of the keys in there... the corresponding entry in add/remove programs will be missing.

    Make sure you backup your registry before screwing around with it.

    hi all
    thanks all for ur times.

    ..Or you want to know where in the registry windows keeps the listings for the programs in add/remove utility?
    not only the programs but evry thing about them.

    if the program X was installed in the computer and then i uninstalle it,
    dose it mention in the registry kind information like
    when its installed and where, when removed...etc.
    I need to know all that , coz somt times I give my system to my frinds to use it .
    and i want to know which programs they insatelled and removed
    but i dont know wher i can find informtion like that in registry.? coze once i found a program in
    the add/ remove list , but i couldn't remove it. and after some days its not there.!!!
    thank u all.
