Just Curious

I use XP Home - Is there any reason why in "Add or Remove Programs" and highlighting an installed program, I'm told it is used "rarely" or "occasionally", when in fact I use the program daily - and a "last used" date, e.g. 23/03/2005, when it was used yesterday! Similar errors appear for all my installed programs. It's probably of little or no consequence - but I'm just curious to know why. Any ideas?

I have similar results, but instead of last used [date], I might substitute last had: - Some hassle, -Needed to modify or update, had an application seize or become sluggish, or involved in fairly complex muti-tasking.

Whatever way, it is a not unexpected anomaly when you consider you have to press the start button when what you really want to do is switch off!

AS I said, I was just curious - so thanks for your responses folks!
