How do I find what was the last app installed on a pc ?

The Add/Remove section of the control panel does not appear to give a date when such
an app was installed?

Any ideas ?

Preferred Solution: How do I find what was the last app installed on a pc ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Good afternoon,

I once found a way to find out the date (and time!) that Windows XP was installed on a system. It was a command that you typed in and it returned with this information.

I can't for the life of me find this again! I've trawled and can't lay my hands on it.

Is anyone aware of this, or another way, to get this information out of Windows???

Thanks in advance.

My computer worked fine, but then one of my cables to the ssd fell out without me noticing it. I installed os on the HDD (used to be on the SSD) and when i was done i wiped the hole HDD with DBAN. After that the os worked nice on the SSD, but i could not find the hdd. I went to the BIOS and found it there, but it was not possible to find it on my SSD. I went to the disk management, but did not find any disk or unlocated space. What is the problem? Anyone have a clue?

I'm looking to get a new computer and after 10+ years of Windows 98, I'm looking for a PC with Windows XP on it.

Can you still find NEW PCs with the XP operating system? Where are some of the better places to look?

I upgraded from W7 to W10 last month. Is there any way to tell the exact date? I'm having some horrible problems due to a missing user file. If I have a backup of one program that was made before I upgraded, I can just reinstall the program and all is well. If I don't, per the software designer, I've just lost 3 years of work because Dropbox can't find the missing pathways. I just can't remember when December 2015 I finally upgraded.

Yesterday i bought a new motherboard MSI G41M-P26 and i reinstalled windows because of this problem (im using win8 release preview) i installed Realtek (everything went fine) and i restarted my pc, after that i couldn't find the realtek icon anywhere, even on the program files the realtek folder is empty there are only 2 files (RtlUpd.exe can't even run it, and USetup.iss) the HDA folder is empty also. I reinstalled it many times, tried various versions of Realtek, it's not even on the Task Manager. It seems like it's installed but i can't run it. I have everything up to date, Please help me, it's really important for me to use realtek.
PS : i have the sound in case you were wondering. But i need realtek. It has so many good options and i'm using a 5.1 home theater.
I didn't have this problem with my old motherboard, and it was also MSI.
Sorry for my bad english.

Hi AceZero and welcome to W7 Forums

That motherboard has VIA audio installed, specifically the VT1708S codec. Drivers for other codecs, including Realtek, will not work with your setup. Sorry.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit. I am supposed to have AVG Internet Security 2011 installed on my computer. When I boot up, the User Account Control asks if I want to allow AVG to run. It says it's installed on my hdd. I say yes. When I go into the hdd, I cannot find AVG anywhere except in the folder Program Files(x86). And the actual executable is not in there, just a few odd files. I have a feeling that the installation might have been interrupted, but every time I try to continue or reinstall it nothing happens after the file extraction hits 100%. It is not in the control panel applications, and when I search for it, nothings shows in the results. I don't know what other information might be pertinent. I am tired, and I have been working at this for a while now.

A:Cannot find a program that says it is installed

Run the AVG removal tool: Remover eliminates all the parts of your AVG installation from your computer, including registry items, installation files, user files, etc. AVG Remover is the last option to be used in case the AVG uninstall / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.Download a fresh copy & reinstall (if you still want AVG)

An ex coworker of mine installed Windows 7 Pro on a pc for one of our clients, which was never activated. Now it's 30 days later and it's asking for the key. The sticker with the Windows 7 Pro OEM key on the side of the box is rather illegible. I input the key in an attempt to activate, but it fails. My issue is I don't know if I'm putting in the wrong key or the Windows 7 Pro that was installed is not OEM version. Is there an easy way for me to tell if it is OEM or not without having to reinstall?

Thanks in advance,

At first i'm having trouble in finding the programs after i installed it. Then i found it very hassle when i need to search it to start and type the word that i installed. Is there any way that there's no need for me to search it and move to start screen? Thanks in advance

A:Where could i find my new installed software

Hello Astorre, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Normally when you install a program, it will automatically pin a shortcut of that program to the far right of your Start screen. You may need to scroll all the way to the right on your Start screen to see it.

If it doesn't, then you can navigate to the .exe file of the installed program, and "Pin to Start" it to have one.

Hope this helps,

I hope I'm in the right forum, this could be a hardware issue. I have a brand new HP DV6000 laptop w/Vista installed. (I couldn't get it with XP) I purchased an identical hard drive & swapped them. When I try to install XP it gets to the point where it asks do you want to install? When I hit enter I get a screen telling me setup cannot continue because setup did not find any hard drives installed. I have another HP DV6000 with XP Pro so I tried that hard drive but as soon as it tries to boot it blue screens with a fatal system error & wants to reboot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Alright, this might sound as a stupid question, but I'm not able to find some of my installed programs (neither in Metro nor with the searching function at the top right corner).
The only way I can find 'em is by going to the installed location.
e.g. ?torrent

Thanks in advance.

A:How to find installed programs

Hello Abdullah, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Usually installed programs will create a shortcut to be listed in your Apps screen.
Apps Screen - Open in Windows 8
If not, then you could go to installed location to create a shortcut from the program's .exe file to use where you like, or "Pin to Start" or "Pin to Taskbar" the .exe file.

Hope this helps,

Hello sweeper47, Keyloggers are meant to be hard to find and don't usually appear in Programs and Features. It is your pc, is it your network? It probably would show up in AutoRuns. Why don't you have the guys at TSF Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help section have a look at your system. They've got some pretty slick programs to uncover anything and are pros at it. Here's the link.

my desktop is Dell Dimension 8400. I replaced the SATA with a new one (seagate). The computer recognised the HD in both BIOS and chkdisk. I partitioned it to 2 NTFS parts, and set the primary active (used PQMAGIC, a very old version back to year 2000). Then I run boot from CDROM, and windows setup showed "SETUP DID NOT FIND ANY HARD DISK INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER. ... SETUP CANNOT CONTINUE, PRESS F3 TO QUIT SETUP".

I don't know how many times I have got this message. Can anyone help me please. Thanks a lot.

A:windows setup cannot find installed HD

Have you tried copying the Sata disk drivers to a floppy/cd and pressing F6 just after the setup starts... remember that windows needs this extra drivers to "see" the disk.

I can't vouch for chkdsk, but the Bios would see the disk regardless if it could access it or not.

Wasnt sure whether to post here or in the game section, but seeing as it seems to be a problem with every game installed figured it must be a system issue rather than game specific (the problem is the same whether its a steam, origin or disk based game).
Bascially, every game installed loads fine but doesnt give the option to load saved games. The saves are there in the documents, it seems the programs just cant connect with them is there some kind of generic windows launcher or something that each game would use to load a save? done various scans nothing untoward has come up, just cant understand why something would happen with every single one

maybe just a coincidence but the desktop icons seem to have moved themselves, and all autofills and bookmarks disappeared at the same time..

Windows Live Mail, surprisinly I couldn't find Outlook Express on her new Win laptop Windows Help informed me that it was no longer included in Windows and that the replacement was Windows Live Mail It asked me if I wanted to install that and I said I did I Installed Windows Live Mail, but can't find it to run it !! picked quot Run quot and the install program ran successfully and informed me that it needed to restart the system to complete the install to which I agreed When the system came back up I was suprised that there was not a WinMail icon on the desktop or in the taskbar I opened the Start Menu to look for it but was unable to find anything about Windows Live Mail The folder named quot Windows Live quot contained only one icon for quot Windows Live Mesh quot There were also single entries for some photo and other useless stuff but nothing for mail Some Googling on the Internet turned up a note that you could run it manually by entering quot winmail exe quot in the Run box Things went from bad to worse when I discovered that this laptop doesn't have a quot Run' button on its Start Menu I have no idea why - on my Win box it is between quot Help and Support quot Installed Windows Live Mail, but can't find it to run it !! and quot Shutdown quot When I set this laptop up I specified that it be a single user system so doesn't that mean that she is Administrator or has the same privleges as Administrator I have been on Win less than a week myself so I am still learning its idiosyncrasies I tried bringing up a DOS box by typing quot command prompt quot in the Start Menu Search box but of course that didn't work because it couldn't find it It was kinda weird to see a DOS box after or years but I digress Next I did a search for quot winmail exe quot but it found nothing A search for quot winmail quot produced instances of the file quot winmail mui quot I have no idea what that is or why there was of them but they weren't executable Thinking that perhaps I had somehow booted the install perhaps because I had told it to only install Mail rather than the whole slew of apps I went back to the web site and downloaded the program to the Desktop instead of running it This time I told it to install the whole mess Reboot no joy still can't find a Windows Live Mail icon or any way to run it I know that this lady should probably be doing browser-based email like me and most of the rest of the world but that would mean that she would have to change her email address that she has for years and she doesn't want to do that Besides I have no intention of dropping this until I figure this out I am a retired software engineer and have been using and supporting personal computers since before the IBM PC even existed and I have lost very few battles - I don't intend to lose this one heh Surely there is a simple answer to this

A:Installed Windows Live Mail, but can't find it to run it !!

I say this only half facetiously.

Ditch Windows Live Mail due to the ridiculousness you are experiencing. It's enmeshed in the whole Windows Live morass that I doubt your elderly friend needs.

Something like Thunderbird is a standalone email app that can be configured to highly resemble Outlook Express--which I used for years and wish was still around. I don't like web mail.

Actually, no facetiousness at all. That's my considered opinion.

Here's what it looks like:

Enter the BIOS at startup and set the drive controller mode to IDE or ATA instead of SATA, turn AHCI or native command queuing off if there are such settings, save the settings and retry.

Else you'll need to slipstream the sata drivers on the XP CD :

I successfully (according to Window's screen) installed (from a disk) a copy of MS Office Ultimate 2007 v12, but cannot find it on the computer or open it. I saved the install to my Desktop, but when I click on the icon, the computer just seems to want to install it (again). No icon for Office appears anywhere.
There was a trial copy of Office 2013 pre-installed on the computer, and so I used that for the one month trial period, but now that is all that opens (e.g. when I click on the MS Word icon) and the prompt says the features have been disabled and direct me to purchase Office 2013

I did a compatibility check of Windows 8.1 and Office 2007 and they show up as 'Compatible' on Microsoft's site.

Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated!

A:Installed MS Office12 (2007) but can't Find It or Open It

Did you go to the start screen (the one with the tiles) and then click on the down arrow icon that shows up in the lower left corner if you move the mouse? From there you should be able to find the newly installed copy. However, if you had a trial version installed at the same time you installed the paid version, you may end up having to uninstall both and then reinstalling just the paid version.

Welcome to TSG

It seems like both of your hard drives are working so whatever you did there must have been right.

As far as the CD drive one thing to check would be the connections to make sure that nothing came loose during your time inside the case. Is the CDROM all by itself on a cable? It's "normal" that the hard drive got the "D" and your CDROM should have been given another letter like "E".

I have a HP DV6400 notebook running MS XP PRO. Keyboard driver appears corrupt. Keyboard works in BOIS screens but not at login window. BT wireless mouse works so all I can do is shutdown, cannot type with mouse. Called HP support and they were useless. Read through all your threads, great info but none of the suggestions worked (use USB keyboard, etc). Concluded I need to repair the OS.

Booted from XP disk in CD/DVD drive, hit ?R? for repair (keyboard worked) and then received error; ?Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.? The only fix I found on line was to use a bootable floppy to install hdd drivers, see http://www.windowsxphome.windowsrein...exfullpage.htm.

I will need to go buy a USB floppy drive and floppies (in 2008 ? really?) in order to follow their solution.

During installation a driver came up asking my permission to install it says G-Spy. I clicked yes... =/ because i became accustomed to clicking yes to everything ugh! I cant seem to find any drivers that were installed going by the name g-spy. Is there anyway i could search it up somehow?

A:Werid Driver/program installed but cant find it G-Spy

Clicking yes to unknown downloads is a very risky practice at the least. My search for G-Spy turned up some kind of cam recording software.
I would scan my computer with MalwareBytes and what ever other security software I had available.
Check your Device Manager panel for unknown devices or yellow triangles. In Device manager explore the details of the mouse driver. See if G-Spy is mentioned. Also you can search the registry for "G-Spy" or "GSpy" and note what it is associated with.

Please go Here (Click on the Blue link) and download a fresh version of Internet Explore 8.

To do the following you will either need Winzip, WinRAR or 7-Zip

7zip is free the WinRAR and WinZip are trials.

Once you have one fo the above programs. Right click on the installation file of IE8 => click on Extract, make a new folder and called it IE8 files and extract the files there => Once the extraction is done open the IE8 files => Go down until you find iertutil.dll and iertutil.mui => Copy both those files to: C:\Windows\System32\.

Then do:

Click Start => Run Copy and paste in the following command:


regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\system32\iertutil.dll

I am not sure what you mean by Fresh Install, but that usually would mean you Formatted (erased) the C: drive and installed Windows.
If you just reinstalled Windows,without formatting, then you will have to reinstall all of the Programs because you have overwritten the Windows Registry in the C: drive, but not the Program Files directory.

A:Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed

I have an idea, but it's an ugly, lose all your data, all or nothing sort of affair. Wipe one drive, then try to install it separately. If that works, install the second drive after the system is up and running as a "volume" (storage drive). You did say you didn't need RAID.
If there's malware involved, sometimes a repair install of XP isn't enough to restore the system to it's former glory.

Plan "B" would be to attempt an install on a brand new, or clean drive. This is best applied if you can borrow a spare drive, at least pricewise.

Keep in mind that there may be bits and broken pieces of the original RAID software thwarting your efforts. You should download the manual for this board before diving into the project full bore, as the book will explain the proper boot sequence and drive mode settings in BIOS

We are about to roll out a group policy to stop people installing USB devices that are not approved. All that is very easy to, our issue is finding already installed devices on a computer.  I can manually roll through the registry entries and try and
manually delete them but given we have hundreds of users, that is going to take forever.  Is there some software that people use that easily identifies if say a Samsung or Apple phone have been connected and delete them. Same thing for most USB sticks
except the ones we specify??

You need to insert the sata driver disk at the beginning of the windows install process by pressing F6 for 3rd party scsi or raid driver!!!!

This is a very common problem and nice and easy to fix!!!!

Before anything, im using Win7 Ultimate x64
Hey guys, i just got this problem receiving the bsod (0x0000012A) with the message; Windows did not find any installed, licensed language packs for the system default UI language.

Now, i tried a lot of different solutions i found on the web, but this is what worked for me after first try;

Start up your computer -> Hit F8 to get to safemode-menu etc -> Select "Last Known Good Configuration"
Thats it. After I did this, the problem was gone.

Hope this can help someone out there

XP amp Canon Multipass C - Service Pack I found out that the problem is not with the parallel to USB cable The problem is that the Multipass C will not work with XP Service Pack Canon specifically states that it is incompatible Is there any way around this original post I got a Canon Multipass c and saw that it had a parallel cable Parallel??) C5500 Find Installed Multipass to XP (USB Canon Printer??? Can't connector - so I got a parallel to USB cable as my pc doesn t have a parallel port When I plug in the USB cable my computer tells me that it has found XP Can't Find Installed Canon Multipass C5500 Printer??? (USB to Parallel??) new hardware - and tells me that it is the Canon Multipass C printer I install the software but I still XP Can't Find Installed Canon Multipass C5500 Printer??? (USB to Parallel??) can t use it Every time my computer boots up the Multipass Desktop software tells me that it can t connect to the C but the quot install new hardware quot window comes up Anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this nbsp

A:XP Can't Find Installed Canon Multipass C5500 Printer??? (USB to Parallel??)

I'm surprised that PC has no parallel port!
The easiest remedy would be to buy a PCI card with 1 or 2 parellel ports on it.
Try RadioShack. or e.g. from here:
Most computer shops that sell parts have these.

Have attempted to get Photo Gallery and Movie Maker on my Win 7 Pro computer. Installed Windows Essentials 2012 which is supposed to include these two programs. The only program that installs and shows up on the computer is Microsoft One Drive. Did a search of the computer but did not find either program. A number of websites discuss this problem and offer solutions. I've tried all of the solutions. None have worked for me. My computer specs are more than what is required for these two programs, so that isn't the problem. I'm beginning to wonder if these programs have been eliminated by Microsoft.

Any ideas would be welcomed.

A:Installed Windows Essentials 2012 but can't find Movie Maker

Get Movie Maker - Microsoft Windows

Movie Maker - Microsoft Windows

Try again, I know my daughter needed it for a school project and we only had to download the single program.

A:Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer


It tells you how to set up your bios to recognize/run Sata drives as IDE. In your case, unless running Vista, you would want to operate as IDE mode.

Conversely, the manual also covers how to configure your Sata drives for operation as AHCI or in Raid mode.

The manual, should you have lost it or whatever, is freely available at Asus.

I just purchased USB Flash Drive and it works fine on my WinXP. I have tried to install the driver from the manufacturers website on three different Win98SE machines, I think at least two of them are USB 2. It appears to install fine. I get a message saying installation completed successfully and to restart with USB plugged in. When I restart I see the building driver database and when it finishes the driver wizard dialogue box comes up. I have tried pointing it to the Windows\inf folder to look for it, but I don't remember where else to look. I have installed drivers before and I thought once you restart, that should be it. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help!!

I'm trying to see if a particular program was installed on a system running Windows 7 without it being booted up. I don't see this program listed under Program Files or Program Files (x86), but I do see something listed under ProgramData that has an executable.
I talked to the vendor, and he stated that this might be what I'm looking for, but that it would show up in the installed programs. 
Thank you.
