"Install Date" incorrect in list of installed programs
Posted 18 February 2012 - 11:49 AM
It is true that the date is correct for a couple; e.g., I updated System Explorer and Firefox today, but the vast majority are programs that were installed weeks, months, or years ago.
CCleaner version: v3.15.1643 (latest, as of this posting). OS: Windows XP SP3. Screenshot here and below.

Were you to open the Add/Remove in the Control Panel, you would see the same.
Microsoft also gets the file sizes of installed programs wrong.

However on XP lots of the date shown in ccleaner are saying the items were installed in the last few days (they weren't) You cannot see the install date on XP just the last used etc. Going into the program files shows the date of install.

Intel Rapid Storage Technology
Intel Control Center
They are listed as being installed yesterday even though I haven't updated them sine April 2012. Also, the date in Windows Uninstaller is correct as well as Revo Uninstaller. I checked the C:\Windows\Installer folder and the Program Files folder for the files and nothing has been changed. Date Created, Date Modified, Date Accessed, and Date Last Saved were all checked. Nothing on 6/9/2013 at all!
I can't figure out where ccleaner is picking up this date. Everything else seems OK actually (I have many programs though.)

Don't PM me for advice or help! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.
Old versions of CCleaner can be found here on FileHippo.
